Law enforcement officials in New York City are offering $22,000 for information concerning the murder of Lou Rispoli. The gay activist was attacked approximately a week ago, 20 Oct, by two unidentified men.
According to witnesses, Rispoli was walking in his neighborhood Sunnyside, Queens, where he lived for 30 years, when unknown assailants struck him in the head with a blunt object. He was transported to hospital, but was removed from life support. Two days ago, 26 Oct., the victim's local representative, City Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer, announced Rispoli had died.
