Andrew Compton (pictured, top), a gay college student at Sullivan University in Louisville, Kentucky, has been missing since Oct. 28, and police all but believe he’s dead. Search crews are today combing a landfill looking for his body, which officials suspect was dumped by a one Gregory O’Bryan, 40, who’s charged with murdering the 18-year-old during sex.
O’Bryan (pictured, right) initially told police he picked up Compton at his residence hall, went back to his apartment, and had sex before leaving on foot. In a follow-up interview O’Bryan said Compton died while they were having sex, then he had sex with the corpse, and then disposed of his body in a garbage bin. Compton was reported missing by his dormmate, who called the boy’s parents after he’d been MIA for a few days. Andrew’s brother Derek recovered emails between Compton and O’Bryan and turned them over to police.
Last night students and friends held a vigil on campus to remember their classmate.
Our hearts go out.
