The killer of Jamaica’s most well know gay civil rights activist Brian Williamson (pictured) has been sentenced to life imprisonment.
25 year-old Dwight Hayden will have to serve at least 15 years before being eligible for parole for stabbing and chopping to death Williamson in his apartment in New Kingston on June 7, 2004.
Hayden, who knew Williamson, went to his apartment and asked for money. He was accompanied by a man called ‘Bom Head’. The deceased let them inside and offered them bottles of Guinness stout. The deceased promised to give Hayden the money later that day but both men chopped and stabbed him to death. They stole a chest from the apartment.
59 year-old Brian Williamson was the founding member of the Jamaica Forum for Lesbians, All Sexuals and Gays, also known as J-Flag.
