Suspected lovers chopped, burnt?

According to The Star…………..

Two men who were killed in Airy Hill, Oracabessa, St Mary last Saturday, might have been attacked because they were believed to be gay, THE STAR understands.
The two men, Civian Thomas and the other man known only as ‘Malichi’, were attacked by men at their home. One was burnt to death.
No motive
Police said they had no motive for the men’s death, but confirmed hearing rumours that at least one of the men was involved in homosexual dealings.
“Thomas who is considered the ‘main man’ would carry various men into the community to live with him from time to time. Based on this reason, they were rumoured to be gay,” a police source told THE STAR.
Police also said the men could have been victims of a robbery, and could have been trailed from a party they attended.
Pursued and chopped
Reports are that about 11:30 p.m., the two had just returned home when a group of men entered the premises and attacked them with machetes. They then set fire to the house, trapping Malichi, who it is believed was severely injured. Civian ran to a neighbour’s house, but the men pursued and chopped him several times, killing him on the spot.
Malichi’s burnt body was taken from the burnt building after the fire was put out by one unit from the Port Maria Fire Department. The men also set fire to Thomas’ Toyota Sprinter motor car which was parked in the yard.
