Thought to be a victim of Jeffery Dahmer’s Billy London was actually murdered by a white supremacist transgender skinhead.
Only in Los Angeles.
LAPD Det. John Lamberti, with the help of Circus of Books Documentarian Rachel Mason, and amatuer sleuth Clark Williams, have helped solve the cold case murder and identified the killer of William Arnold Newton, who went by the gay male porn names Billy London.
Dubbed the Black Dahlia of the gay community. Newton was last seen at The Rage Nightclub in West Hollywood. His head and feet were found in a dumpster in Hollywood off of Santa Monica Boulevard on October 29, 1990.
London was originally believed to be one of Jeffery Dahmer’s unidentified victims was actually mudered by Darrell Lynn Madden, a former self-proclaimed white supremacist and skinhead who now identifies as an Orthodox Jewish woman named Daralyn Madden.
Madden pleaded guilty to killing a gay man in Oklahoma named Steven Domer and another man named Bradley Qualls, who had been Madden’s accomplice in Domer’s murder and has since confessed to abducting, robbing, beating and strangling Newton to death.
Madden said she approached Newton and put her arm calmly around his shoulder and told him that they were going to rob him and “probably beat the crap out of him,” and that he was going to go with them without making a scene. She said she couldn’t remember where they had taken Newton, but that she had ended up strangling him to death, which matched the coroner’s findings. She didn’t dismember Newton’s body, she knows who did but she refuses to “snitch.”
L.A. County Dist. Atty. George Gascón’s office has decided not to file charges against Madden, citing a lack of evidence beyond the confession, too many unanswered questions remain and prosecutors would have a difficult time proving Madden’s guilt beyond a reasonable doubt after 30 years.
William Arnold Newton’s grizzly murder will be the subject of a documentary by Rachel Mason the documentary will be a follow-up to Circus of Books and will be much “deeper dive into the world behind the videos.”
