Is this the gay serial killer?

A VIDEOFIT of a man police believe could be the gay serial killer who has claimed five victims in London was issued yesterday.

It shows a heavily built man of 6ft, aged 30 to 40, with short brown hair, strong features and discoloured teeth.

He was wearing a short, dark jacket and jeans and was seen with the last victim, Emanuel Spiteri, 42, during the few days before his death at his home in Catford on 15 June.
