Killed: NZ-born British consul John Terry
A 23-year-old man was arrested yesterday, and is being questioned. Two other men have been interviewed by police, but have now been released, reports the UK's Daily Mail.

Terry, 65, was battered to death and found naked with a cord wrapped around his neck just outside his home in Montego Bay.

A note beside the body said "This is what happen to ALL gays," included the Jamaican slang word for gay men "batty-man", and was signed "Gay-Man," reported British news sources.

The UK's Telegraph newspaper later reported that Terry "was understood to have been bi-sexual and a young black man was seen with him shortly before his death and – say neighbours – running from his home."
