Young gay teen, tortured by Russian vigilantes, may be dead (video)

I wrote the other day about how vigilante groups in Russia were luring gay teens via Russian social media sites, then kidnapping and torturing them. One such teen, profiled in our piece, may now be dead, according to Russian human rights activists. He was a young Uzbek waiter, and I’ve found additional photos, and a video, online of his abduction.

It should be noted that when you look at the translation from the original source, he may be presuming that the boy is dead, rather than reporting it.  Nonetheless, the new photos, and videos, are chilling.

Here the young Uzbek is seen being allegedly abducted by his captors. The group apparently calls itself “Occupy Pedophilia,” a pun on the Occupy Wall Street movement:

This is a another still shot from video of his alleged abduction that the abductors posted online, as is their habit.  The video is below:

Here is the video of his alleged abduction:

More from the group Spectrum Human Rights:

According to the human right activist, Dr. Valentin Degtyarev, MD, who closely monitors infamous Neo Nazi group “Occupy Pedofilyaj”, the Uzbek victim shown on this photo tragically died as a result of numerous tortures.

No arrests have been made and no charges were pressed.

Putin’s law enforcement seems to fully condone these actions. Moreover, Dr. Degtyarev’s numerous written complains to the authorities only resulted in his own persecution and threats directed at him and his 72 years old mother. In the official correspondence from the local District Attorney office and Governor’s office it was explained that Russian authorities do not see any wrongdoings in the video clips or photographs posted by Neo Nazi group “Occupy Pedofilyaj.”

Actually, the authorities referred to this group as one of the “civil movements fighting the sins of the society.”

Dr. Degtyarev diligently collects every piece of evidence and correspondence and records all phone conversation with direct threats to him and his mother. Yet, no actions from authorities have resulted so far. Dr. Degtyarev is routinely approached and offended on the street, receives numerous threats via mail, phone, SMS and email. He is not alone in his fight though.

Here’s the now-infamous photo of the boy being held captive and tortured:

Here the same teen is allegedly being doused with urine:

And here is the teen with the men who allegedly held him captive.  It’s not exactly rocket science identifying who they are:
