Se­rial killer con­victed of mur­der­ing 3 men he met on­line

Malta Independent - - WORLD -

A Bri­tish man has been con­victed of mur­der­ing three men he met on gay dat­ing web­sites. Pros­e­cu­tors say Stephen Port in­vited the men, all in their 20s, to his home, where he gave them lethal doses of the psy­choac­tive drug GHB so he could rape them while they were un­con­scious. He then dumped their bod­ies in and around a grave­yard near his east Lon­don apart­ment. Po­lice ini­tially did not link the deaths, which took place over more than a year. Yes­ter­day ju­rors at Lon­don’s Cen­tral Crim­i­nal Court con­victed 41-year-old Port of mur­der­ing Gabriel Ko­vari, Daniel Whit­worth and Jack Tay­lor, and com­mit­ting a range of sex­ual of­fenses, in­clud­ing rape, against sev­eral other men. Ju­rors are still de­lib­er­at­ing on one other mur­der charge.
