Matthew Sheppard was a METH DEALER who had an established sexual relationship with one of the two guys who got mad at him.
Word is they had a falling out and he told the guy, “when I bare-backed you I had HIV...”
Not nice he died, but is it really such a “surprise”...?
Shepard was indeed HIV - one of the reasons his gay-friendly sexual partner murdered him. An amateur meth dealer who got up the nose of the professionals, a non-stop drama queen, a pity party all unto himself, he met his death and joined the 28Party. That new book (sorry, I forget the author!) is a must read.
