DONALD YOUNG MURDER
Gospel Music Bites reported this death on January 3, 2008. There is a picture of Young at the website and a description of the murder scene:
Two days before Christmas, Donald Young, the popular choir director at Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, was discovered murdered in his apartment. He had been shot multiple times, including a shot in the head.
Donald Young, 47, conducted choir for more than two decades at the well-known church. He also taught fourth grade at a Chicago public school.
On Saturday, December 29, more than 2,500 people attended Donald Young’s standing-room-only funeral service, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. Some mourners waited outside for over 20 minutes to say goodbye.
Senator Barack Obama, who attends the church, sent a letter of condolence. The letter, along were many others, was read during the service, according to the paper.
The Hilary Clinton forum is following this story and alleges:
"What does Democratic presidential front-runner Illinois Senator Barack Obama, Reverend Jeremiah Wright, a man named Larry Sinclair and Trinity United Church of Christ’s murdered homosexual choir director have in common? According Mr. Sinclair, maybe quite a bit.
According to Sinclair, he has given new evidence to Chicago police linking Obama to the murder."
