Two men being held in connection with the brutal murder of Jody Dobrowski last October on London’s Clapham Common have entered guilty pleas. They will face a minimum of 30 years for the killing, in which the 23- and 25-year-old viciously beat their victim to a point where he was only identifiable through fingerprints.
Dobrowski’s murder occurred in an area known for gay cruising, and while he hadn’t come out to his family, at the time they issued this statement:
“Jody knew he was loved and accepted. He knew that we knew. He was also a young man still discovering his identity and was facing the difficulty of having to ‘come out’ which straight people never have to face. The timing of this was up to him. He had very little time. He did not know that.”
Sentencing for the two criminals is set for June 16th.
