On February 19, 1999, Billy Jack Gaither, a thirty-nine-year-old gay man who worked at the Russell Athletics apparel company near Sylacauga, Alabama, was brutally beaten to death. His throat was cut, and his body was bludgeoned with an ax handle before being thrown on top of a pile of tires and set on fire. In the weeks following the killing, two men came forward to police as the killers: Steven Mullins and Charles Monroe Butler. Butler, the younger of the two, came forward to police first. He described the night of the murder in great detail: how he had never heard of Billy Jack Gaither prior to the night of the killing; how his friend Steve Mullins found him at a bar playing pool and asked him to take a ride into the woods with himself and Billy Jack; how Billy Jack started "talking queer stuff" that set off a violent reaction in Butler; and then how he stood by as Mullins beat Billy Jack to death. In June of 1999, Steven Mullins pled guilty to capital murder; Butler stood trial and was found guilty of the same charge by a jury. In August of 1999, both Mullins and Butler were sentenced to life in prison without parole.

His killer is killed:

A 45-year-old man convicted in the 1999 hate crime murder of Billy Jack Gaither has been killed in an Alabama prison.

The inmate was airlifted to an area hospital where he was treated for multiple stab wounds. Hospital officials reported that Mullins had died from his injuries on Thursday.

Experienced 38 Yrs Old Cirque Du Soleil Performer Falls To His Death in Florida

Cirque du Soleil performer Yann Arnaud died after falling during a show in Florida on Saturday.
Arnaud was an experienced performer and had been with Cirque for 15 years.
He posted on Instagram about the new aerial straps routine before the show, saying “it’s time to go for it.” 

An experienced Cirque du Soleil performer has died after plunging onto a stage during an aerial straps routine at a weekend show in Tampa, Florida, the company said Sunday. 
The incident occurred Saturday night when Yann Arnaud, 38, fell during a performance of the show "Volta," according to Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group. The French performance artist died of his injuries at Tampa General Hospital.

Arnaud had been performing in Cirque shows for 15 years and was considered one of the company's most experienced entertainers, President and Chief Executive Daniel Lamarre told Reuters in a telephone interview. 
"We were very surprised, considering his experience, that something like that happened," said Lamarre, speaking from Tampa, where he had flown to be w ith the show's cast. "I cannot describe to you how the people feel. It's terrible." 
The death is the third involving a Cirque performer in the company's 34 years, Lamarre said, adding that the aerial strap act was seen as a relatively safe number. 
Julian Martinez, a spectator who witnessed the accident, told NBC affiliate WFLA: "It was awful. You heard all the cries of the audience. There were children there, and they were freaking out." 
Lamarre said he couldn't share details about the incident involving Arnaud, a husband and father of two young children. 
"We are offering our full and transparent collaboration to the authorities as they look into the circumstances of this accident," the company said in a statement, adding that the last two shows of Volta planned for Tampa on Sunday had been canceled.
Police said Arnaud was performing on the double rings when one of his hands slipped and he fell about 20 feet. An autopsy was scheduled for Monday. 
Tampa police said the incident was under investigation by the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration. 
Just a few hours before he fell, Arnaud posted a photo to Instagram to announce that the strap duo act would finally appear in the show.
