Mike Webb's Former Friend Faces 28-years In Jail

Gay DJ “Killer” Pleads “Not Guilty”

Seattle police seem to be one step closer to solving the Mike Webb murder case.

Webb, a radio disc jockey since the 1970s, went missing in May, leading some to suspect he left town. His landlord, however, found Webb’s bludgeoned body wrapped in a tarp and stuffed in crawl space. A series of clues led police to a 28-year old homo named Scott White.

Webb, a gay radio personality, first met White last November, as White battled drug addiction. A former addict himself, Webb invited White into his home and helped him fight his demons. Unfortunately, it seems as if White may have returned the favor with a few ax blows.

White hadn’t been seen since Webb went missing in May. Webb’s family didn’t suspect any foul play at first, but grew increasingly worried as time went on. While some people thought Webb may have left town, his landlord proved otherwise after discovering Webb’s battered body stuffed in a crawl space. An autopsy revealed that White had been hacked with an ax and beaten to death.

Police started searching for White, who they immediately deemed a “person of interest”. A tipster led them to Trolley Hill Park, where they arrested the homeless homo.

Though White reportedly admitted to killing Webb, he pleaded not guilty in court yesterday. He remains in custody on a $1 million bond. If convicted of the charges against him – primarily first degree murder – White faces 28 years in prison.

    So Mike Webb’s “couch monkey” did him in.
    Scott White was apparently interested in women but had a history of drug abuse. He was also a “couch monkey” – known in homosexual circles as a young man who is still decent enough to trade sex for room and board and maybe a little cash.
    M. Webb apparently availed himself of the opportunity and wound up getting killed for it. According to someone who knew Scott White he may have dreaded his stays with various men – apparently there were quite a few. Newspapers tried to play the angle that – that great guy M. Webb was helping out the poor drug abuser and was going to get his life straightened out. No – they slept in the same be – Webb used the guy. Apparently this slimeball used the wrong guy

    Finally. Someone else sees what I’ve seen. Sure Scott had issues. I think as a homeless,drug-addicted young man… he was abused one to many times by someone who wanted something that Scott didn’t want to do. Imagine being Scott for a moment. Straight, homeless, looking for someone to care about him… wanting to stay warm and some food in your belly. Then imagine trying to sleep and someone touching you. And you’ve been in this position many times. But this person is manipulative, controlling, strong-armed. what to do …? kill them may have been extreme but that is what Scott chose to do.
