    Serial Killer in London?! Man Poisons Four with GHB

    Though America boasts the ranking of first place in number of convicted serial killers, our first runner up, England, is looking to add one more to its count and inch just a bit closer to the top. (Sorry, England, we’ve got 226 to your 47, at last count. ‘Merica!)

    According to The Guardian UK, 40 year old Stephen Port is accused of poisoning four men with lethal doses of GHB over a 15 month timeframe. Allegedly Port met his four victims online through websites catering to gay men before inviting them to his home where they were administered the club drug.

    GHB is odorless, colorless, and often slipped into alcoholic drinks without the knowledge of the victim.

    GHB is commonly known for its use as a date rape drug, as it is odorless, colorless, and leaves victims susceptible to the actions of those around them. Victims of GHB are often unable to recall what happened to them while under the influence. An overdose can lead to unconsciousness, convulsions, aspiration, and slowed heart rate. If untreated GHB overdose leads to death.

    Port, who has been described as “quiet and easygoing”, disposed the bodies of two victims in a churchyard, while the third was disposed near the ruins of Barking Abbey.

    Gabriel Kovari, 22, and Daniel Whitworth, 21, were found dead less than a month apart from each other in the same area near St. Margaret’s church. Both men were described by family members as happy, loving young men who met unfortunate ends. Jack Taylor, 25, was discovered near the Abbey ruins not far from the same church as the other victims and 22 year old Anthony Walgate was found near a graveyard on Cooke Street.

    During his appearance Port only spoke to confirm his name and address. His case is slated to be transferred to the Old Bailey and due for trial early next year. He currently faces four counts of murder as well as four counts of “administering poison with the intent to endanger life or inflict grievous bodily harm.” He gave no indication of a plea.
