The Pride Divide: Jodie Henderson’s death sparks continued fight for LGBTQ+

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Jodie Henderson, a gay 27-year-old Afghanistan War veteran, was brutally murdered in 2016 in South Bend because he had romantic feelings for his killer, Jabreeh Davis-Martin. 

Henderson’s mother, Patricia Forrest-Maxie, says if he hadn’t come out as gay, he might still be here today. 

Forrest-Maxie sat down with ABC57’s Julianne Grohowski and spoke about her outlook on LGBTQ acceptance in South Bend eight years after Henderson’s death.
