Stephen Port was jailed for life after being found guilty of the murder of four young gay men in Barking, east London. The bodies of two of Port’s victims were found in the same position, in the same graveyard, by the same dog walker three weeks apart.
Yet a catalogue of police failings meant that the deaths weren’t linked until bereaved families and friends effectively carried out their own investigations.
Port picked up young men on various gay dating sites, murdering his victims with lethal doses of the drug GHB before dumping their bodies. This disturbing documentary talks to family members whose persistence despite police rebuffs led to a breakthrough and Port’s arrest. First shown on BBC3.
Stephen Port date-raped and murdered four young gay men in East London within 15 months, yet Barking and Dagenham police failed to link the deaths, until weeks after the fourth one. This documentary unravels Port's sinister character and modus operandi.
