The common factor in four murders 

According to reports, all the murders have more than one common denominator: the victims are said to have contacted the alleged serial killer through the dating app Grindr, which is especially popular with gay men. Allegedly, they invited him to their home and were drugged there. In all cases, the victims’ bank accounts were looted. The perpetrator is said to have committed the murders last year. 

Don’t alarm society 

The police of the Basque Country have not made an official announcement for the time being. However, upon request, they confirmed the media reports and the ongoing investigations. Bilbao’s mayor, Juan Mari Aburto, admitted in an interview that there was a “tense calm” in his city as a result of the media reports. The town hall is aware of the investigation and is doing everything it can not to alarm society
