There are new developments in the gruesome double murder that happened over Black Gay Pride last September in Atlanta. Twenty-one-year-old Samuel Blizzard Jr. and 26-year-old Calvin Streater were shot execution-style on September 5. Both men attended Black Gay Pride events over the weekend, police say.
Police have released a sketch of a potential suspect, reports the GA Voice. The man in the sketch "was seen with the two victims the day they were killed."
The September 2010 double murders happened at a gated complex. Police said at the time that there was "no sign of forced entry" and apparently the victims knew the assailants.
Streater lived in Atlanta and Blizzard was a Georgia State University student from Virginia.
Atlanta Police Department spokesman Carlos Campos confirmed both men were apparently gay. "We have learned in fact they attended some Black Gay Pride activity that day," Campos said last September. "There is no evidence the shooting deaths had anything to do with the fact the men were at a gay event," he said and added there was no evidence this "was a bias crime."
The double murders were the second and third Black Gay Pride-related homicides within 10 days. Traxx co-owner Durand Robinson was gunned down in an apparent carjacking on August 25. There are still no arrests in that murder and police re-canvassed the crinme scene last week.
