Serial killer Stephen Port, 41, is due to be sentenced today for the vicious murders of four men that he found on online via gay dating apps and websites. He was found guilty of their murders earlier this week with a majority verdict of the jury.
Port was found guilty of the murders of Anthony Patrick Walgate, 23, Gabriel Kovari, 22, Daniel Whitworth, 21 and Jack Taylor, 25. Their bodies were dumped in or near a graveyard in Barking. The graveyard was 500 meters away from his flat in east London.
The 41-year-old was also found guilty of 10 offences of administering a substance with intent, four rapes and four sexual assaults.
The murders took place between June 2014 and September 2015.
The Independent Police Complaints Commission, who are currently investigating the Metropolitan Police for their response to the deaths of four men in London are looking for witnesses who may have had contact with Stephen Port to come forward.
