25-Year-Old Philly Man Allegedly Beaten to Death After Using Grindr

Philadelphia police say a gay man was beaten to death after meeting someone on the popular gay hookup app Grindr, Philadelphia’s ABC-affiliate station WPVI reports.

According to WPVI, a passerby found the body of Dino Dizdarevic, 25, Friday at the bottom of a fire escape in Chester, Pa., (about 16-and-a-half-miles west of Philadelphia).

Dizdarevic was missing last Wednesday. When his body was discovered, he reportedly had suffered blunt force trauma to the head. According to police sources, Dizdarevic, a chemical engineer working in New Jersey, met up with someone from Grindr. WPVI reports investigators have Dizdarevic’s phone as evidence.

WGB: What a tragic and senseless loss. I hope they bring the person who did this to justice.
