Alleged Gay Serial Killer Caught

Alleged Gay Serial Killer Caught

22 October 2015

Over in the UK an alleged serial killer of young gay men was been charged earlier this week with drugging and murdering four young men he met on gay websites.

Police say 40-year-old Stephen Port (pictured) is a serial killer who murdered the men, all in their 20s, over a period of 15 months.

Prosecutors say he invited the men to his home, where he allegedly overdosed them on the sedative GHB.

Police initially did not link the deaths, which took place between June 2014 and last month.

The body of 23-year-old student Anthony Walgate was found in the street where Port lives in the Barking area of east London in June 2014. Bodies of two more men were found in a nearby churchyard, and another near a ruined abbey.

Port made a brief court appearance on Monday and was ordered jailed until his next hearing.
