BEIRUT: Two men were arrested late Wednesday for the murder of Gavin Ford, according to security sources, two days after the badly bruised body of the late radio host was found in his apartment.
The two Syrian nationals confessed to the gruesome killing, citing robbery of his car and money as the motive. His car was found near the Souq El Ahad area.
Ford's body was found Tuesday by members of the Internal Security Forces in his Broumana apartment with his hands tied behind his back.
The cause of death was determined to be strangulation, coupled with severe bludgeoning.
Since 1996, the 53-year-old British citizen has been hosting the popular morning radio show "Gavin Ford in the morning."
