A South Florida gay couple was found
dead in their home by police over the weekend, victims of a double
homicide, gay weekly South
Florida Gay News reported.
Police found the bodies of Kevin Mark
Powell, 47, and Stephen Duane Adams, 52, in their Wilton Manors home
on Sunday. Police entered the home at the request of Adams' sister
who grew concerned when her brother was a no-show at a family
Powell had not fully recovered from a
double-organ transplant to cure his diabetes six months ago.
The couple met at a Cleveland gay pride
parade 29 years earlier.
“They fell in love, and they've been
together ever since,” Powell's brother, Shannon Kicklighter, told
the Miami Herald.
Wilton Manors police announced on
Tuesday that they had identified a person of interest in the
homicides, but provided no details. Police say they are searching
for the couple's black 2003 Saturn Vue.
Adams, a registered nurse, and Powell,
an interior decorator, moved to Wilton Manors – which includes a
large gay population – earlier this year. They had previously
lived in Hollywood, Florida.
