Poison: His Likes Include...

A 40-year-old special needs teacher will appear in court today accused of murdering four young men over 15 months.

Stephen John Port, from Barking, east London, is accused of poisoning his victims, all in their early twenties, between June last year and September this year.

Three of the bodies were found either close to the churchyard of St Margaret's Church in the town or the nearby Abbey Ruins.

Another alleged victim was found on the same street Port lived in, Cooke Street, in Barking.

Scotland Yard said this morning Port has been charged with four counts of murder.

He has also been charged with four counts of administering a poison with intent to endanger life or inflict grievous bodily harm. Port is due to appear in custody at Barkingside Magistrates' Court today.

Port describes himself on Facebook as a special needs teacher at Westminster Kingsway College in King's Cross. It says he attended the University of Oxford between 2000 and 2003...

Daily Mail.

Betcha didn't see this coming...

His likes include a number of gay websites and lesbian, gay, transsexual and bisexual support groups.

Wait there's more!

The second and third alleged victims Gabriel Kovari, 22, and Daniel Whitworth, 21, were found at the same Barking church within one month of each other.

An inquest earlier this year heard both men had taken GHB and methadone.

Mr Whitworth had 'blamed himself for Mr Kovari's death' after they took the drug GHB at an orgy, Walthamstow Coroner's Court heard in June.

A dog walker found Slovakian-born Mr Kovari on August 28 last year while Mr Whitworth, from Kent, was found on September 20.

The coroner was told that Mr Whitworth was found dead holding a note in his left hand, which said: 'I can't go on anymore, I took the life of my friend Gabriel.

'We were just having some fun at a mate's place and I got carried away and gave him another shot of G[HB]. It was an accident, I know I will go to prison if I go to the police.'

The note said the men had sex at the party and added: 'I have taken what G[HB] I had left, with sleeping pills – if it does kill me it's what I deserve. This way I can at least be with Gabriel again.'

Needless to say...

Sorry we are not currently accepting comments on this article.

How long til the tabloids inevitable speculative 'The Gay GHB Killer?' headlines?

Though 'Chemsex Killer' is catchier and far more modish.

  1. I know that church. It's not in any way a secluded area. It has a fairly busy road circling all the way around it pretty much and the main entrance is literally across the street from the shopping center.
