|Heidelberg Police Chief Vernon Barkley, seen here|
in a television report on a different crime
A witness said Iorio's acquaintances wrote "disgusting" things on his pants, drew on his face, poured Bacardi 151 on his leg and then set it afire because he is gay.
The two suspects, Brandon Washington and David Blair, were not arrested by the Heidelberg PD, but they WILL receive a SUMMONS in the mail, as they have been charged with aggravated assault and ethnic intimidation. Timyka Artist made several unsuccessful attempts to contact the Heidelberg Chief of Police, so she went to his office. He told her he was "too busy to talk right now." Artist, as of her report, was "still waiting for him to call us back."
