The Grindr Serial Killer: Stephen Port’s Murders

Published on 19th February 2017 by

In November 2016 British man Stephen Port was convicted of killing four young gay men with lethal doses of the date-rape drug GBH and then dumping their bodies in locations close to the apartment in which he lived. Port had met all of the men on the gay hookup app Grindr.

Port was convicted of multiple rapes and four killings and sentenced to a whole life term, meaning he will never be eligible for parole. The police have revealed that they are opening up the case files of 58 other GBH related deaths to see if they can link any of them to Port.

This short 2016 documentary revolves around the account of one of the victims friends, who explains how it is that his friend came to become one of the killers victims. The interviewee claims that the police could have apprehended Port and prevented further deaths if they had acted more quickly. The failings of the police were explored in a subsequent longer 2017 BBC documentary, How Police Missed The Grindr Killer.

    That’s one scary looking bastard, wouldn’t have liked to walk past him at night yet alone go back to his house!

    I would have preferred to hear from the police department or at least a few other sources rather than this one self-serving and extremely whiny person. Clearly, there WAS a follow-up investigation. There are no court records or corroborating testimony, only this person’s perception of what he believes the detective’s work was, which is hearsay and extremely poor documentary work.

    This documentary completely fails to address the fact that even the main interviewee admits the existence of parties in which drugging and rape was taking place, and that people were attending these parties voluntarily. People who are part of this underground scene are not terribly forthcoming and (like this interviewee) are often extremely self-centered and unwilling to come forward with information because they are afraid they themselves will be targeted. And, in fact, his personal safety seemed to be far more on his mind than getting justice for his friend.

    This was too slanted to be credible and clearly written by someone with an axe to grind. Boy, I’m glad that police investigation didn’t turn up the killer. Oh, wait, it did. Not impressed.

    That said, I do thank the file uploader for sharing it with us.
