Join The True Crime Enthusiast, as this week we head back to 1986 for a recount of a savage case of multiple murder. Before Stephen Port, before Colin Ireland, another killer stalked the streets of London's gay scene. One who is surprisingly often forgotten or overlooked - surprising, because the crimes are some of the most horrific ever recounted.
