Eerie Video Shows ‘Grindr Serial Killer' Taking Victim Home Hours Before Death
CCTV footage has emerged showing a man's final moments before a serial killer is alleged to have killed him.
A jury was shown a chilling video of Jack Taylor, 25, walking with 41-year-old Stephen Port in Barking, East London, England, after arranging to meet up on dating app Grindr.
The video was played for a court case where Port faces 29 charges including four counts of murder, along with rape and sexual assault.
Mr. Taylor is believed to have been Port's fourth victim.
The court heard how Mr. Taylor left a night out in Barking at around 3 am on September 13 last year to meet Port and walk to his flat.
CCTV footage of the pair walking together near Cooke Street are believed to be the last official sighting of Mr. Taylor.
Port blocked Mr. Taylor's account on Grindr four hours later.
The victim's body was found sitting up against a wall of a graveyard nearby. It was discovered by a garbage man.
Later that morning, footage captured Port withdrawing money from an ATM alone.
He is seen carrying a large, black bag and a smaller, white bag.
The last piece of video evidence the jury was shown was Port entering the apartment of a drug dealer identified as Peter Hiron.
Port is accused of carrying out similar attacks on three other people.
One of the victims is believed to be Port's housemate.
Earlier in the trial, the jury listened to an audio clip of Port calling 911 to report a man “collapsed outside” who may have been “drunk.”
The man was later identified as Anthony Walgate — a 23-year-old man believed to be one of Port's victims.
Port has already been jailed for perverting the course of justice and fabricating a story to authorities.
He denies all the charges he faces.
The trial continues.
