Daniel Zamudio, the 24-year-old Chilean gay man who was left in a coma after being brutally assaulted in a park in Santiago, has died.On March 27 doctors confirmed that Zamudio had passed away hours after tests revealed that his brain showed no signs of life.

Zamudio had been in the hospital for over three weeks after a group of alleged neo-nazis brutally beat him and left him unconscious. Police have arrested four men in connection with the crime and they've now been charged with murder.

Last week, friends, family supporters held a vigil. His attack and death have moved people worldwide, including Ricky Martin, who dedicated the GLAAD Media Award he received March 24 in New York to Daniel Zamudio.

The LGBT community is currently seeking passage of an anti-discrimination law.
