A Breaking Bad fan allegedly murdered a gay police officer he met on Grindr and dissolved the body in a bath of acid, a court heard.
Gordon Semple, 59, met his match with alleged murderer Stefano Brizzi on 1 April. The policeman went to Brizzi’s flat in south London for sex, the jury heard.
Brizzi denies murder, claiming the PC died accidentally.
Jurors at the Old Bailey heard how Semple shared an interest in S&M and BDSM with the alleged killer, with the officer texting he would go to the flat for ‘hot, dirty, sleazy’ sex.
Brizzi, who the court heard was fired from his job for doing crystal meth, allegedly was allegedly strangling Semple when a man turned up on his doorstep.
But the man was put off when the defendant said someone was ‘ill’, the court heard as reported by the BBC.
A few days later, neighbors noticed a ‘revolting smell’ coming from the flat. Brizzi put it down to cooking for a friend, the prosecution said.
On 7 April, a neighbor alerted police. When they visited the flat, they found a bath full of acid with ‘globules of flesh’ floating in it.
The prosecution told the court his attempt to dissolve the body in a bath tub was inspired by the plot from Breaking Bad.
‘I’ve tried to dissolve the body,’ he allegedly told the police man. ‘I’ve killed a police officer.
‘I killed him last week. I met him on Grindr and I killed him. Satan told me to.’
Jurors were told the defendant died accidentally during a ‘sex game gone wrong’.
Semple’s partner reported him missing.
Brizzi allegedly told support groups that he liked ‘satanic rituals’, including having sex over the sign of the pentagon and treating men like dogs.
He denies murder, admitting a second charge of obstructing a coroner in the execution of duty between 31 March and 8 April.
