The first ever recorded winner of the Mr Gay UK competition Anthony Francis Morley (also known as Anthony Morley) , has been charged with the murder of Damian Oldfield, a 33 year man worked for the company that runs the Mr Gay UK competition.

Mr Oldfield was allegedly stabbed to death by Anthony Morley on 24th April.

Police were called after comments the suspect made in a local Chine take-away, officers then discovered the body of Mr Oldfield.

In a gruesome twist, local press have reported that police found chunks of the victims leg had been cut off and were in a saucepan on the stove. The Yorkshire Evening Post reported on Saturday: “Horrified detectives then found a diced up section of flesh on a kitchen worktop which had been cooked.

Tests proved the flesh was human. Officers are now having to consider the possibility that the killer had “eaten some of the flesh.”

Soon after the incident Yorkshire Police said in a statement:

“Police were called to Bexley Place in Harehills at 2.30am on Thursday, April 24.

“On arrival officers discovered the body of a 33 year old man”

The Police have declined to comment further.

Anthony Morley appeared in Court in a grey track suit on Monday and spoke only to confirm his name and address.

Oldfield was an employee of All Points North, the company owning ‘Bent’ Magazine, ‘Mission’ Club in Leeds and ironically the ‘Mr Gay UK’ brand.

He worked as an advertising manager for the magazine.

The Mr Gay UK winner received his five minutes of fame in 1993 when he opened a number of gay events and nights.

The competition has been going on in various forms since the eighties. The year that Mr Morley won was the first year that the competition was held with its current name and format.

Colleagues have paid tribute to Oldfield on the internet:-

“Damian had become an integral part of the Sales team and was well liked by all his colleagues for his humour and infectious sense of fun.

“He was always sociable to customers and was busy developing new areas of business for the company. His enthusiasm for his work often took him beyond the call of duty.

“We send our sympathy to his friends and family,

“He will be sadly missed.”

“You never expect to hear of someone who was so full of life, and so outgoing and friendly be hurt in such a way.

“My deepest sympathy to all your family Damo, you always made me laugh whenever I saw you!

“I’m going to miss bumping into you and hearing your jokes.

“R.I.P Damo, love Cassandra”

Anthony Morley has not asked for bail and awaits trial.
