Murder of gay porn actor Billy London solved 32 years later

On Oct. 29, 1990, the severed head and feet of 25-year-old gay porn actor Billy London, aka William “Bill” Newton, were found inside a Hollywood dumpster. The gruesome cold case has haunted West Hollywood for more than 32 years. It was the gay community’s version of the Black Dahlia murder. But it seems that a group of amateur sleuths has helped solve the case, according to the Los Angeles Times. Photos: ONE Archives and Rachel Mason.
