U.S. Navy officials said they had no indication that the shooting death of a gay sailor at Camp Pendleton, Calif., was a hate crime.
Capt. Matt Brown, director of public affairs for Navy Region Southwest, said the military also couldn’t confirm that Seaman August Provost was harassed in the days before he was killed, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported Thursday.
“There is no evidence or information that suggests this is a hate crime,” Brown said during a news conference.
Uh huh. Right.
