Gary "Brazon" McMurtry
Birth: Jan. 6, 1966
Death: May 17, 2002
Columbus
Franklin County
Ohio, USA

Gary McMurtry, better known to LGBT Ohioans as his alter ego Brazon, was stabbed to death in his Clintonville home on May 17.

Police charged Michael Jennings with aggravated murder later that day.

A man dressed "like a ninja" in black clothing broke into McMurtry's house through a glass back door at around 6:45 am, said Columbus police spokeswoman Sherry Mercurio. McMurtry's roommate Brian Bass tried to stop the masked assailant but the attacker cut Bass' hand with a katana, or samurai sword.

Mercurio said that Jennings then went upstairs, where he attacked McMurty.

"His roommate heard screaming, and then the screaming stopped," she said.

Bass called police and both he and McMurtry were taken to Riverside Hospital, where the former Miss Gay Ohio was pronounced dead. According to police, the sword with which he was stabbed did a large amount of damage.

It was 12 years ago today that a beautiful person became a beautiful angel in Heaven. Your presence is still missed here and you are remembered and loved by many.
