A gay man from Dallas has been found murdered, naked and wrapped in a sheet in the backseat of his car.

The Beaumont Times reports that Kevin Alton Moyer, 53, was found murdered on Saturday south-west of Beaumont, outside Houston.

According to Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, Moyer was identified by his dental records, though the cause of death was not released.

Two men, Arthur Christopher Harmon, 21, and Yiannis Nikolaos Mihail, 31, were arrested Monday in connection with the death, and are held in custody on $1 million bail.

Deputy Rod Carroll, a spokesman for the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, told Lone Star Q that the murder was not being treated as a hate crime.

He said: “The guys that murdered him are also homosexuals, and that’s how they linked up.”

“It’s still an ongoing investigation. We’re trying to get a third suspect into custody to finalize all those details.”

Last month, a lesbian couple were murdered and left next to a dumpster in Fort Bolivar, Texas.
