Every families worst nightmare…

Imagine getting a knock on your door and being told that your loved one was dead. You hear the circumstances and you know that something’s not right. You try telling the police, but they won’t listen. 

That’s what happened to us. They eventually listened, but it was too late. 

Between August 2014 and September 2015, Stephen Port murdered Gabriel Kovari (aged 22), Daniel Whitworth (aged 21), Anthony Walgate (aged 23) and Jack Taylor (aged 25).

When each boy’s body was found, the Metropolitan Police dismissed our pleas and failed to identify or investigate the deaths as murder until it was too late. 

They later admitted missing "potential opportunities" in investigating the deaths. 

Getting justice, but the search for answers isn’t over. Please help

Stephen Port was eventually caught and was convicted of all four murders in November 2016 and will spend the rest of his life in prison. Yet, we’re left devastated by the loss of our son, brother, uncle and friend. We believe that their deaths could have been avoided if the police had done their jobs instead of dismissing our boys as drug-taking gays. 

We now need help to get the best legal representation possible at the inquests into the deaths. We feel the police let us down before and we don’t want to be let down again. This is our chance to get answers and accountability. 

£10,000 won’t cover all the legal costs but it will be a great help. 

All four inquests are due to be held together next year. 

They will look into how our boys died, the role the Metropolitan Police played into the deaths will also be examined. 

The inquests are also an opportunity to identify failings and stop other innocent people dying in this way, as well preventing other families having to go through what we have since our boys died.  

We’ve waited a long time for this and we’re desperate for answers. Please help share this page and donate if you can to help us reach (or even exceed) the target. 

We all need a society where the police do their job and if they don’t we need to know they will be held accountable for their actions.
