10 years later: Media bury Jesse Dirkhising
Press focuses on Shepard death, ignores homosexuals’ brutal murder of boy
Posted: September 25, 2009
As the 10th anniversary of 13-year-old Jesse Dirkhising’s tragic murder and rape by two homosexuals approaches, the young boy remains victim of a second burial – by the American media.
The press is still buzzing about the murder of Matthew Shepard – an adult homosexual brutally murdered in Wyoming by heterosexuals – and his mother’s newly released memoir, “The Meaning of Matthew: My Son’s Murder in Laramie, and a World Transformed” describing the gory details of her son’s murder in a descriptive narrative. Shepherd’s parents have been lobbying for a hate-crimes bill since the murder.
USA Today reported “The Laramie Project – 10 Years Later” will debut in more than 100 theaters in all 50 states and seven countries Oct. 12, the 11th anniversary of Shepard’s death, in an effort to raise awareness about “hate crimes.” NBC aired a drama, “The Matthew Shepard Story,” in June 2006.
But, even on the anniversary of his death, another boy’s horrific murder continues to be largely ignored – with no plays, books or TV dramas to honor his memory. No local memorials have been held since Dirkhising’s brutal death at the hands of two homosexual predators who confessed to using the boy as a sex toy while torturing him to death.
And even though the case received a flurry of publicity after first being brought to the attention of the nation in WorldNetDaily, the number of articles written pale in comparison to those written about the murder of Matthew Shepherd.
Allyson Smith detailed Jesse’s tragic story in a WND report.
Dirkhising was found by police unconscious on the floor of a Prairie Grove, Ark. residence around 5 a.m. Sept. 26, 1999. The boy had suffocated to death during the early morning hours, after being bound, drugged, gagged and brutally sodomized by Davis Don Carpenter, then 38, and Joshua Macave Brown, then 22, at the men’s apartment in Rogers, Ark.
Police determined Dirkhising had been repeatedly raped over a period of hours, including with foreign objects, by Brown and Carpenter.
