The Daily Beast on the murder by three teens of Washington D.C. principal Brian Betts: "A spokesman for the Montgomery County Police, Captain Paul Starks, said that at least one of the suspects met Betts through a gay chat service on the night of the murder, gaining access to his home. Police say that none of the suspects were found to have any previous contact with Betts or connection to his students. While police have not yet described how the incident progressed from a robbery to deadly violence, Starks said that investigators believe Betts’ sexual orientation did not play a role in the crime.
'We think the motive was robbery, not a hate crime,' Starks said."
