A report is quoting a source as saying slain Libyan Ambassador Chris Stevens was gay.

Stevens, 52, died last week at the hands of an angry mob who stormed the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. He is survived by his brother Thomas, a 46-year-old with the Justice Department in San Francisco, and his sister, Anne, a doctor in Seattle.

The AP described Stevens as “a self-effacing bachelor with a wry sense of humor who drank beer, dated women and liked outdoor sports.”

But Kevin DuJan of HillBuzz quotes an unnamed diplomatic source as identifying Stevens as gay.

“It was stupid to send him to Libya as the ambassador when he was a known homosexual,” the man identified as “Dino” who works at the Serbian consulate told DuJan inside Second Story, a gay bar in downtown Chicago.

Citing the Lebanese publication Tayyar.org, the AFP reported that Stevens was sodomized before his death.

“It is like making him a woman in death and he will be a woman now after life,” Dino said.

DuJan is the journalist who recently told conspiracy theorist Jerome Corsi that President Barack Obama is secretly gay.
