Police respond to Stephen Port shocked the judge


Port was convicted a year ago of murdering Daniel Whitworth, 21, and Gabriel Kovari, 22, in 2014.  The victims’ parents are now demanding a joined investigation of the deaths. Their original inquests recorded open verdicts, but the court heard that there was a new evidence to be uncovered and this evidence is believed to be necessary and desirable for the case. A suicide note was found in the hand of Mr Whitworth claiming he accidentally killed his lover Mr Kovari and could not live with it, but it emerged that Port was the one who wrote the note and the two victims were not even acquainted with each other. Police accepted the note at face value and recorded the deaths as non-suspicious. Port also murdered Anthony Walgate, 23, and Jack Taylor, 25. Lord Justice Holroyde told the court it seemed “surprising” the original police investigation had “revealed so little” about the true circumstances. The Justice added that the coroner had been given “insufficient” evidence which did not allow to see the full picture.
