Playgirl Killer Apprehended, Hates Gays
Marcus Allen/Timothy Boham was arrested on suspicion of murder while trying to flee to Mexico earlier today (in an ending that eerily echos that of Wash West’s porn fiction feature The Fluffer.)
The picture of Boham that emerges in the wake of his arrest suggests a deeply troubled man who was struggling with his sexuality — and temper.
Although he was a fairly well-known porn star (he starred in over a dozen movies over the past few years, and was named “Freshman of the Year” by Freshman Magazine in 2003), he was a gun-collecting, homophobic straight man when away from the gay porn spotlight. Denver Post reports:
… Boham told Lara Holland, who lived in a Denver mansion on High Street in an apartment a floor below Boham, that he “sanitized” his apartment by thoroughly scrubbing it because a gay man had lived there previously, she said.
“He hated (gays),” she said. “He hated their lifestyle.”Although the nature of their relationship remains unclear, Rocky Mountain News is reporting that the “generous to a fault” John “JP” Kelso (the man he’s suspected to have murdered) wanted to give Boham a “new start” by hiring him and training him to be a debt collector just a few weeks ago. He stopped showing up to work after a few days. That Kelso was openly gay makes one wonder if maybe this was a hate crime.
I got a different story from Cory Koons who bottomed for by Allen in Rascal’s “Never Been Touched” in 2005. He recalls no odd or uncomfortable behavior on Allen’s part, saying he was, in fact, quite nice to him on the set. Koons was told by the casting director of the movie that Allen specifically requested to work with him because he’s Asian, and he “had a thing for Asian women.”
When I talked to him earlier today, Koons (seen left, fellating Allen) added, “I was even told to shave my goatee off because he didn’t like facial hair. During some downtime on the set, he showed me pictures of his two daughters. I remember remarking, jokingly, that they were half-Japanese — like me.”
Speculating on his sexuality, Koons remembered (somewhat fondly) “Allen did let me let him suck his dick — which was quite nice — when the cameras weren’t rolling. I got the feeling he wasn’t too into fucking me, but a good blow job is a good blow job. I was happy to provide; he was happy to receive.”
As this case continues to unfold, things should get interesting.
