Chapel Hill gay bash victim Thomas Stockwell has broken his silence about the attack he experienced last Friday night in which six men taunted and beat the 21-year-old University of North Carolina student, breaking his nose and leaving him unconscious.
“Out of nowhere I just hear ‘Fag’ and all sorts of derogatory comments made towards me,” Stockwell said. “At first I didn’t realize they were yelling at me. They just punched me in the face. I did fight back. I’m not the only one hurting in town tonight.”
Hundreds came forward Tuesday night for a rally but so far only one witness to the crime has emerged.
