Donald Young, a vibrant, charismatic choir director at one of Chicago's largest open and affirming black congregations, Trinity United Church of Christ, was found shot to death this past Sunday in his home. Young,47, was a longtime member of Trinity's choir, initially singing bass and then moving up the ranks to become one of its most electrifying and popular directors.
He was also a faithful attendee at the conferences of the Gospel Music Workshop of America. The details about why and exactly how he died remain unclear; there is, however, one story that emerges with some semblance of clarity: a longtime choir member and a sometime visitor of the church, both in their early 20's, were dating and Donald became interested in the sometime visitor.
After the break-up of the choir member and the visitor, Young began to date the sometime member. In jealousy and anger, the choir member went to Donald's home and shot him. In an eerie twist of events, the choir member, who was trailed to the frequent Trinity visitor's home by police, questioned and released, sat in the audience the very same Sunday that Mr.Young's death was announced. Young was well liked and the announcement provoked a shocked gasp from the congregation.
A wake for Young will be at 10 a.m. Saturday at the church. A funeral service follows at 11 a.m.
for the life of me, after all that has been said and done, why people are still refusing to vote McCain........
“vibrant, charismatic” = “flaming”
Actually we still need some mroe data on the otehr deaths/ It isn’t clear that SPencer was murdered at all — he may have died of AIDS or something/ Nor is it clear that Larry Bland was a member of the church.
Look at the dateline.

If the queers want to kill each other off, I certainly won’t complain about it. If some guy wanted to do to me what they do to each other, I’d kill him too.
Along with alcoholism, suicide and depression. Let alone hemoroids!!
Alcoholism, suicide, depression and sexual compulsiveness square with a history of childhood sexual abuse, which is why I go along with the school that says the vast majority are “made,” vampire fashion, than are born.
Supposedly Chicago PD has phone records showing calls between Donald Young and Larry Sinclair. Larry can’t even get the phone company to give him his own phone records now!!
He had about eight websites disappeared, he landed here — http://larrysinclair-0926.blogspot.com/
