Season 1 - Episode 16

DESCRIPTION

SPOILER WARNING: THIS IS PART TWO OF A TWO-PART STORY. PLEASE LISTEN TO SEASON 1 - EPISODE 15 FOR MORE DETAILS ON THIS CASE.

Stephen Port was arrested on October 15th, 2015 for the murders of 4 men. They were all found in Barking in East London and had all died in strikingly similar circumstances.

All had deadly levels of GHB in their system and the police had initially believed this was either accidental or self-inflicted.

The family and friends of the young men did not think that they would choose to take their own lives and it was only due to the sheer force of will on their part; they managed to convince investigators to look beyond their initial findings.

After new evidence had been uncovered, the police had their suspect in custody.
