With so many of us out and happy to be queer it must be ever tougher on the many who hide in the closet whatever their material rewards.
In a monitored telephone conversation between Danton and this individual on Friday, the latter asked why Danton had wanted to have him killed. According to the affidavit signed by FBI Special Agent John Jiminez, Danton "broke down and sobbed. Danton explained that he felt backed into a corner and also felt that the acquaintance was going to leave him. Danton did not want to allow the acquaintance to leave him, therefore decided to have him killed."
At least any bars they went to.
"He never (went) out to the bars, never saw him with anyone outside of hockey," O'Keefe said. "He never did anything fun, he kept to himself. I've known him since I was a kid and basically his whole life revolves around hockey."
Toughness isn't always measured by your fists.
"I don't know a tougher guy than him, I don't know a guy that guys in the corner and gets killed and that will drop his gloves with a guy who's 40 pounds heavier in a flash," Weight said. "He's tough as nails."
Poor man knew he was screwed up.
"He had things he wanted to get off his chest and he needed help to do so," Frost said. "We were setting something up for him for the end of the season."
Because of the FBI's cryptic wording in its affidavit on the Danton case, there was premature speculation about the nature of Danton's relationship with the male "acquaintance"_the intended target of the alleged murder scheme. Some media outlets, including those that serve the gay community, immediately and perhaps falsely assumed Danton was involved in a homosexual relationship. And multiple sources have told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that it isn't true.
