Gay Porn News: Few Updates in Cobra Murder Case
The murder of Cobra Video kingpin Bryan Kocis has left police scratching their heads almost two weeks after his charred remains were discovered. Their one lead may have just gone cold, too: The man police wanted to question in connection to the slaying — an escort from Norfolk, VA, named Harlow — may have an alibi.
Last week police recovered an email from Kocis’ hard drive where he said he would be meeting with a potential model the night of his murder. A picture of the model was released and he was quickly identified as Harlow from NorfolkMaleEscorts.com (where he’s billed as a “stud wonder”). He also appears on the amateur site BoyBatter.com.
A Pennsylvania paper is reporting that Harlow claims to have never met Kocis, is “freaked out” that his image is being linked to the murder, and alleged that somebody is “playing a sick joke or something.â€
Harlow told reporters, “Clients will call me or send me a text message saying theyâ€™ve seen my picture on a Web site, and that Iâ€™m offering services in Atlanta. Iâ€™ve seen my body but my head was cropped out and someone else will put their head in. That picture they are using, Iâ€™ve used everywhere. Itâ€™s my cover picture.â€
Making maters somewhat more complicated, however, Harlow admitted to meeting Sean Lockhart/Brent Corrigan at the AVN Expo Las Vegas last month, the same place where Lockhart and Kocis were seen together as well.
Otherwise, court papers about the case revealed that Kocis was stabbed 28 times and slashed in the neck before his house was set on fire. There was no forcible entry into his home, and a folding-style knife was found nearby, presumed to be the murder weapon. Police are looking for the driver of a light-colored SUV seen leaving the scene shortly before the fire broke out.
Note: In my previous post about this case, I erroniously referred to Kocis as a “convicted child molester” and several readers have taken me to task for this. True, he was charged with having sex with a 15-year-old teen in 2001. However, it was proven in court that the boy misrepresented his age and the sex was consensual, so he was only ever charged with one count of corruption of minors.
