Man pushed off cliff in 1988 for being gay

Possible hate crime solved after several decades

Scott Johnson was standing near a cliff in 1988. The cliff, located in Sydney Australia, was a well known meeting spot for members of the LGBTQ+. Somehow, John ended up at the bottom of the cliff.

Authorities ruled his death a suicide but his family urged law enforcement to investigate his death further. After a coroner examined the body decades later, they determined that Scott Johnson was murdered.
