If You Haven’t Heard Of Stephen Port, Here’s What You Should Know About The Killer
A 41-year-old man named Stephen Port is currently on trial for the murder of four gay men he met on the hookup app “Grindr.”
The London resident allegedly lured his victims into his home with the promise of sex, then gave all of them a lethal dose of the psychoactive drug, GHB, before raping them. Unfortunately, 23-year-old Anthony Walgate, 22-year-old Gabriel Kovari, 21-year-old Daniel Whitworth, and 25-year-old Jack Taylor all ended up dying by overdose. The latter three’s bodies were found in and around St. Margaret’s churchyard in Abbey Green between June 2014 and September 2015.
What’s disturbing is that Port made a call to emergency services about his first alleged victim, Anthony Walgate. He claimed to have seen the man unconscious in a car right in front of his apartment.
