Read an article on the news this morning about the behemoth from the theater:

"Jerry Polk, 38, was found in the Accent Theater of the Loop area early yesterday morning. Polk, who has been described as being "morbidly obese", was discovered when ushers came to clean after the midnight showing of Alice in Wonderland. The employees assumed he had fallen asleep and tried to wake him. That's when they discovered his throat had been slit. Police are searching for suspects but have very little to go on. Given the location of the crime scene forensic evidence will be very hard to come by and so far there are no witnesses. They have said given Mr. Polk's appearance they have not ruled out the possibility that this was a hate crime."

A hate crime is probably an accurate description, but not for the reasons they suspect.
