Stephen Port, a 40-year-old man allegedly poisoned, molested, and then murdered four gay men between June 2014, and September 2015. According to some online sources, the murders took place between April 2014 and September 2015.
Let us dig deeper and find out what happened.
Four Gay Men Poisoned To Death Within A 14 Month Period
Stephen Port used ‘PinkNews’, a dating website designed particularly for gays as well as Grinder, a dating app for gays to meet different men. He met four different men via the website and the app, and interacted with them on separate occasions.
Once he established a familiarity with the men, he separately took all four of them to his house, over a 15-month period. Once inside the house, Stephen drugged them using GHB (Gamma-hydroxybutyric acid), a popular date rape drug.
GHB is a strong hypnotic depressant colloquially referred to as liquid X, liquid E, liquid ecstasy, Georgia home boy, easy lay, natural sleep-500, scoop, gamma-oh, fantasy, soap, organic, gamma hydrate, sodium oxybate, cherry meth, G-riffic, Gib, somatomax, and grievous bodily harm.
It mostly comes in liquid form mixable with other liquid ingredients. GHB causes drowsiness, forgetfulness and seizures, slowed breathing, and a decreased heartbeat. Its overdose leads to coma and death. The coma usually lasts two hours with recovery normally occurring within eight hours. Being a date rape drug, administers of this drug often use alcoholic drinks to administer the drug.
Stephen laced the drinks of his victims and administered a very heavy dose of GHB. Within minutes of drinking their beverage, the victims fell to the ground and entered a coma-like state.
Post-mortem reports conducted on the victims showed that the victim’s corpses showed signs of sexual molestation before they died. Stephen had sexual intercourse with all four of his victims and then dumped their bodies at different locations.
At the time of the crime, Stephen, now in custody and awaiting trial, lived in a flat located on Cooke Street in Barking, East London. Three of the dead bodies were discovered around St. Margaret’s Churchyard, which is within half a mile of where he lived, while the fourth corpse was discovered on Cooke Street, close to Stephen’s home residence.
Stephen On Celebrity Master Chef UK
Stephen Port also made a one-episode appearance on the famous television show ‘Celebrity Master Chef UK’ in June 2014, the very same month the body of his first victim was discovered.
In the brief appearance he had on television, Stephen was seen giving meatballs and pasta to various bus drivers. It was the fourth episode of the ninth season of the show and the celebrity chefs had to prepare a meal for 100 bus drivers.
Stephen appeared on the show wearing a white chef’s hat with a blond toupee beneath it. He assisted JB Gill, a famous JLS singer and Emma Barton, a renowned soap opera actor who appeared on ‘EastEnders’ prepare and serve the meal to the drivers.
Later, when Stephen was accused of the crime, one of the spokesperson for the Stagecoach London and West Ham Bus Garage stated that Stephen was not an employee of Stagecoach; rather, a catering company that was not aware of Stephen’s criminal activities had outsourced him.
