John Terry, 65, the honorary consul to the British High Commission, was discovered with severe head injuries and a cord tied around his neck at his home in Montego Bay. Det Supt Michael Garrick said there was no sign of a break-in and that a note left by Mr Terrys body referred to batty man -- Jamaican slang for gay. There was a reference to Mr Terry being gay, and what would happen to gay men, he said. Mr Terry, who was separated from his wife and two children, had been honorary consul for the last 13 years. A colleague at the hotel where he worked as a maintenance supervisor said it was common knowledge Mr Terry was gay. He made no secret of it, and thats what may have got him killed, he said. Victim of hate: John Terry Mumabandonedbabyonholiday AN AMeRICAN is trying to get his baby back to Texas after his fiance apparently gave birth while on holiday in Italy and abandoned him at a church in Florence.

Lord Phillips of Worth Matravers said that he under- stood why those suffering horrible diseases would want to spare their relatives pain and distress, while avoiding a quite hideous termina- tion of their own life. But in a blow to campaigners for legal assisted suicide, he warned any change in the law was unlikely to produce a more satisfactory answer than present legislation which outlaws it. The comments by Lord Phillips, who will be president of the court, come as prosecutors are preparing new guidance on the circumstances under which those who assist in suicide will face criminal charges. Law Lords have ruled that Director of Public Prosecutions Keir Starmer must clarify how the law will be interpreted. Campaigners including Debbie Purdy, a multiple sclerosis sufferer who wants her husband to be allowed to help her die in a Swiss clinic, want Mr Starmer to give clear approval for such cases.
