Vigil Held for Missing Gay Kentucky Teen Suspected Killed by Man He Met Online

A sad story from Louisville, Kentucky, where hundreds gathered for a vigil to remember missing 18-year-old Andrew Compton, a Sullivan University student from Carmel, Indiana, and show support for his family.

The Indy Star reports: Obryan

Compton, 18, was last seen Oct. 28, and a Louisville man is suspected of killing him while they had sex. Gregory M. O'Bryan, 40, Louisville, was arrested Tuesday and charged with murder, tampering with physical evidence and abuse of a corpse. Police searched for Compton's body Tuesday at the Rumpke Indiana Landfill in Medora, Ind. Police planned to continue the search today. 

Compton was reported missing after his roommate told his parents that he hadn't checked in for a couple of days, police said. Police initially questioned O'Bryan after determining that he'd exchanged e-mails with Compton, whom he met through an online dating service. In that initial interview, O'Bryan said he'd picked up Compton at Sullivan's Gardiner Point Residence Hall, bought alcohol and had sex with him at his apartment before Compton left, according to O'Bryan's arrest citation. But when police questioned O'Bryan a second time, he admitted that Compton had died while they were having sex, according to the arrest report. He said he then had sex with the corpse. 

O'Bryan also told police he dumped Compton's body in a garbage bin near his apartment, said Lt. Vince Robison, an assistant police chief. O'Bryan is being held in a Louisville jail, with bail set at $1 million. He is scheduled to be arraigned at 9 a.m. today.

Police are still not certain whether O'Bryan is lying

"Before Monday, O'Bryan had never been charged with so much as a traffic violation, according to Jefferson County court records. His neighbors said he never seemed to leave his apartment across from Bloom Elementary and sometimes would play the same technobeat music on his stereo for hours on end. Richard Moss, a neighbor, said that during cook-outs behind the apartment building, O'Bryan would brag about his conquests of men half his age."

  1. This story made my heart sink. Having close family and friends who were victims of very violent crimes I feel awful for Andrew Compton's family and friends. It's a pain and sadness they'll live with until they die. What the fuck did this monster do to the kid? Died while having sex? Sex with his corpse? WTF! How many others has he hurt and killed? This kid wasn't the first. So many sick fucks in this world.

    Execute him.

  7. It's not enough to tell people where you're going when you're meeting a stranger -- tell the *stranger* too. Say with a laugh "Oh, by the way, my friends all know where I am and who I'm with, so if you kill me, you'll be arrested, hahaha!"

  10. A confession could be easily extracted with the right incentive. People do trip, and sometimes, old methods are better.

  11. That is, the location of the body. He knows where it is, and all he needs is to the right incentive: suffering.

  12. OMFG.
    I predict he won't last long in prison when they find out what he did to that poor guy.

  15. What are you trying to say 'Shannon'? Spit it out.


    To repeat my 1st post:

    ...'What the fuck did this monster do to the kid? Died while having sex? Sex with his corpse? WTF! How many others has he hurt and killed? This kid wasn't the first. So many sick fucks in this world.'

    Execute him.

  16. This is why I believe in the death penalty. Because as sick and corrupting of the national soul as the death penalty is, there are SOCIOPATH SUCK EVIL FUCKERS like this who can NEVER be rehabilitated, who have no soul, no empathy for others,and no literally no ability to apply the concept right and wrong to their own behavior. That is the harsh reality. He is missing what makes a human a person. This ANIMAL should not be allowed to exist in any society among other people.

    Bless Andrew Compton's soul. I hope and pray his family can some day find some kind of peace.
