LGBTI activist Julian Aubrey was found dead in his London flat on Monday (30 October). He was stabbed multiple times before dying at the scene.

Aubrey, 55, was a former co-chairman of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea LGBT liaison group. He also served as a counselor working with sexual abuse victims.

Police arrived at the victim’s home when neighbors reported hearing screams in the early hours of the morning.

Neighbors allegedly told the police Aubrey had disputes with his neighbors. They also said police had to come previously to deal with these disputes.

‘I  am appealing for anyone who was recently in the area of Shaftesbury Place and who may have heard a disturbance coming from one of the flats to contact us,’ said Detective Chief Inspector Luke Marks. ‘I would also like to hear from anyone who may know why Julian was targeted in his own home in such a violent way.’

Scotland Yard said police arrested three men on the suspicion of murder.

‘Julian was a great guy. I can’t come to terms with what happened,’ said Aubrey’s brother-in-law Nigel Turner.

‘He had his problems but he had a lot of time for other people. He did a lot of counselling work. He was a good counsellor, he had great empathy, and I’m sure he helped a lot of people. He loved art, he loved people. It’s all a bit raw.’
