Gay Porn Star Stabbed 14 Times In Costa Rica

Man brutally murdered in Costa Rica was a gay porn star who allegedly recorded his sex partners without their knowledge, according to a news report.

Cops say Steven Spencer Welland, 41, a heavy hitter in the world of amateur gay porn, was gagged and then stabbed 14 times sometime on May 24th in Punteranas, Costa Rica.

Some online believe the renovator’s side gig in smut may have been the reason he was murdered.

Welland’s online handle was ‘Swell 80’ who identified himself on an online porn site as “Gay man, Webcam model, Amateur, 41y.” Some of his sex videos have racked up more than 2 million views.

Some of Welland’s partners may not have known the carnal capers were being filmed. Citing online commentators, it noted that the videos claimed the men were unaware about what was going on.

One user said: “Because he records sex videos of guys without consent. It’s involuntary porn. Hot but involuntary.”

Another added: “Nearly all of his stuff was gay for pay. I guess he didn’t pay someone enough so they took it all.”

Local media described the slaying as an early-morning surprise attack that happened in the camper where he lived.

TN 8 reported: “Apparently, neighbors in the area saw a suspect leave, so they entered the property to see if everything was okay. At that moment they came across the bloody scene and notified the authorities.”

Prosecutors said that Lefevre Hernandez was detained outside the dead man’s home.

Welland was originally from Calgary, according to his obituary and attended Lord Beaverbrook High School and Mount Royal College.

He had his own renovation business before moving to Central America in 2016.

“His big heart will be missed by all of his family and friends,” his obituary said.

He is survived by parents, a brother, a sister and numerous nieces, nephews, aunts and uncles.

Because these super-desperate men are cheaper - finding a REAL Straight Guy to go gay for pay, is much more expensive

and what poor latin guy is going to do once the video is released? Sue him?

Oh there is another channel where he actually fucks - and I can see the appeal of this. Many times these websites that "claim" to feature 100% straight guys, are really not straight

Here - this guy actually found white straight guys, who decide to go gay for the first time - but not realizing they were being filmed. So he was really doing reality porn.

It's all conjecture. No one has seriously accused the victim of breaking Costa Rican porn and photography laws, which follow most national standards.

That's not to say that he wasn't murdered by a former porn subject. But to simply assume a white, gay, US porn person was killed because (of course) he was deceiving "poor native" people "of color" performing in his porn videos smacks of racism, homophobia and victim-blaming.

The modus operandi in many of his videos was that he and his girlfriend were looking for a third to join them. He would tell the guy the girlfriend wanted to see the guys on video prior to the meet up or sometimes that she got off on seeing him with a dude ("let's make this hot for my girlfriend."). He seemed to use this scheme more often when he was hooking up with guys who were Spanish speaking than English speaking dudes. There was usually a good bit of drinking going on.

Jesus Christ! This shocked me when I saw it, just because I am aware of this guy, had seen a few of his videos years ago and had just assumed he was still going around doing his thing. And he's been killed?

I never really saw him travelling Central America, but I remember the videos in Canada where he'd invite a guy over to see if the guy was comfortable being sexual with another guy, in the lead-up to a proposed threesome with his non-existent girlfriend. I hadn't realised it was so exploitative (I am sure the couple I saw had the other guy aware he was being recorded, but maybe I'm imagining that?). But the videos I saw often had sound cutting out and freezing happening because his equipment was so shitty, so I never looked into him too much. The only thing I remember was thinking that he was hotter than any of the guys he was picking up.

Wow. It's just so nasty, the whole lot of it.

This guy made money off porn? I know all sorts of people are into all sorts of things, but nothing I saw was particularly hot at all. I guess the idea of "reality" porn and the guys not knowing is what attracted people.

The "exploitation" part - convincing poor guys to do it - I don't know, they still had to make the decision for themselves. But videotaping without consent - when more than few would be terrified to be found out - is too much. I don't think he deserved to be killed but understand why he was.

From the Costa Rica Media

The body of a 41-year-old Canadian was found gagged and stabbed multiple times in a mobile home in El Roble, Puntarenas.

The alert of the discovery of the corpse was received by agents of the Organismo de Investigation Judicial (OIJ) this Monday at dawn.

Upon arriving at the property where the camper was, next to a home, agents identified the deceased as Steven Spencer Wellard, who apparently lived at the site.

At the site, the Public Force arrested a 23-year-old man, Lefevre Hernández, who is listed as a suspect in the murder. He was sent to the Public Ministry with the corresponding report, in order to define his legal situation.

For now, the Judicial Police reported that the motive for the homicide remains under investigation, since it is not clear if it could have been an assault or another situation.

"The case remains under investigation to determine the circumstances of what happened," reported the OIJ through its press office.

Crime scene and another article from the Costa Rica Media

Steven Spencer Wellard, a 41-year-old Canadian, was killed in a stabbing attack in El Roble de Puntarenas. Apparently, Spencer was resting in a camper (van enabled as a house) that he had parked on private property in the Las Parcelas sector. Around 2 a.m., the alleged perpetrator sneaked up to the trailer, entered, gagged the Canadian and inflicted 14 stab wounds on different parts of the body that killed the foreigner.

Apparently, neighbors in the area saw a suspect leave, so they entered the property to see if everything was okay. At that moment they came across the bloody scene and notified the authorities. The Red Cross arrived to attend to the victim but he did not show vital signs, so they declared him dead. For their part, the administrative police officers guarded the place while waiting for the agents of the Judicial Investigation Agency to appear to proceed with the removal of the remains and collection of evidence.

According to the Puntarenas Deputy Prosecutor's Office, "Lefevre was detained on public roads, outside the home of the offended man, in El Roble de Puntarenas." They also commented that they carry out various investigation procedures at the victim's home and then they will take the investigative statement from the suspect. The authorities presume that criminal acts are on the rise in this sector of the Pearl of the Pacific because apparently there are at least four drug groups that sow terror in the central canton.

He shot a screen with a friend of mine when he was underage back in Western Canada. My friend was able to ask him to take down the clip since it was child porn.

Anyway, this guys videos are sometimes hot.

It’s doubtful he got straight men to engage in sexual contact on his charm alone. Also, he quit a secure life in Canada to live in a trashy area of Costa Rica. I’m almost positive drugs are somehow involved.

This was gang related?

It does take some balls to complain that people are pirating the intimate videos you took of your sex partners without their knowledge and consent...

I'm sometimes bewildered at such a lack of moral compass but then I remember... drugs likely featured heavily in the deceased's life.

by Anonymousreply 129Last Saturday at 6:31 PM

It freaks me out thinking about his life. Like, imagine if you had a good chance of being arrested if you ever went back to your home country. And with him, it's not like he decided to make amends in Central America, he just kept doing the same thing and acting aggrieved that anyone might make his videos, that he put [italic]online[/italic], even more public than they are, because he might be arrested. It's baffling! A very attractive man with a successful construction business or whatever throws it all away like that? He can't have been right in the head.

Was he not exaggerating the arrest thing to make the videos seem more taboo?

He’s not even hot or big dicked

For a guy who made a living off tricking these men he sure fucked up many filming sessions.

It is possible he was a drug addict, and when you are in the throes of addiction, nothing you do makes sense,

No great loss, and no surprise. We’ve all read the thread detailing how gay porn stars end up.

I guess that means he frequently bought groceries at Gelson's. There's nothing in the Costa Rica media that says he didn't.

God needed another gay porn star

I dunno, R132. It's possible I suppose, but I think the types of videos he was making, which clearly showed his face, would be illegal to make in Canada (and in many places) and he could've easily been arrested, I'm sure.

R136 Hardly a fucking porn star. He gave handjobs to men who had no idea they were being filmed.

by Anonymousreply 141Last Saturday at 8:07 PM

Why? I haven't seen his videos but how can you be sure the other guys didn't consent?

by Anonymousreply 142Last Saturday at 8:07 PM

What R142 said. They're probably just trying to "save face" even though jacking off on video makes that pretty much impossible.

"I didn't know! He forced me! Yeah, that's it!"

They don't exactly look like hidden cams. There was probably a camera right in their faces.

by Anonymousreply 143Last Saturday at 8:22 PM

R142 R143 Just because you cum wanking to his clips, does not ignore the fact there is no intimacy, no men indulging their passion together. It is like a 1950s porn story. Furtive, no looking, no connection. Just a sad wank.

by Anonymousreply 144Last Saturday at 8:35 PM

How can I cum to clips I haven't seen. This guy wasn't actually a star.

by Anonymousreply 145Last Saturday at 8:38 PM

Damn. What a terrible way to die. I never found him particularly attractive, but he did have some hot videos on his XVIDEOS channel. There were a few mutual masturbation and BJ ones that were great. He also had one guy on there (I forget his name) who was a total cockhound, who got fucked on camera several times—those ones appeared to be consensually recorded. I can't say for sure about some of the others. There were some he filmed in his living room that appeared to be covertly recorded. It seemed like his content had gone downhill over the last year or so, and it appeared he was living out of an RV in South America, picking up street guys. It started to get kind of depressing. I don't know if I can watch any of his videos anymore, knowing how it all ended for him. Way too grim.

Exactly how many colónes does it take to get a straight Costa Rican hottie to let you pull on his salchicha until it explodes? Asking for myself.

by Anonymousreply 148Last Saturday at 11:51 PM

I shouldn't be since this is DL after all, but I am kind of surprised by the comments suggesting that he deserved it. I understand that he put himself at great risk by filming these encounters non-consensually (apparently), and while it does make him a sleazy piece of shit, I still don't think he deserved to be killed so brutally because of it.

by Anonymousreply 149Last Sunday at 1:21 AM

He was usually the hottest one in his videos. But yeah he was exploiting these guys.

by Anonymousreply 150Last Sunday at 6:48 AM

Not in his earlier videos, but I agree on the last ones.

But it appears this murder had nothing to do with videos. The perp was a gang member.

I hope sites don’t remove his videos after this scandal. They are hot as hell. He definitely lived on the edge with some of these guys. Very sad.

These guys loved it. You seem the videos? Money, drugs—they loved it.

by Anonymousreply 155Last Sunday at 6:59 AM

There’s a video of him hanging out with a hot young white guy who’s “bicurious” and they end up jerking off. The young guy looks like he wants to kiss him and do more. It was under the guise of “auditioning” him for a threesome with his fictional girlfriend so very scummy, but hot.

by Anonymousreply 156Last Sunday at 7:06 AM

I've seen some of these videos - I always wondered how he got so many guys on camera.

If he paid them and they were aware of the cameras, that's one thing. However, you can tell some of these cameras were hidden.

Taping people without their consent and throwing it up on the internet is vile and criminal.

He was playing with fire and he got burned. Particularly if you're going to go after desperate people or street people with drug problems.

Would we be disappointed if this was a random murder by a gang member like the press in Costa Rica is presuming, and not “revenge”? I think people here would be disappointed—happy a gay guy is dead, of course, but sad it was just a random murder.

R159 - gang members have family - what if one of the guys was a brother of a gang member?

Costa Rica isn't like Guatemala - I don't hear about tons of white tourists and ex-pats being targeted by gangs there.

Most crime from criminal elements are going to be theft / robbery. Stabbing someone 14 times is more of a crime of passion and intent - not a by-product of a robbery gone wrong. There are exceptions of course.

[quote]Please, it's a money-friendly country. Sure, if you're a white American or Canadian gay guy with money you can go there and carve out a nice life, probably without too much hassle for your sexuality. I doubt it's "very gay friendly" for everyday poor Costa Ricans,

My ex is Costa Rican. Never had a problem holding hands and pretty his whole family accepted that he was gay. Costa Rica has gay marriage and their last elections were won on gay marriage, something that never happened in the US. In fact, Obama went against gay marriage both times he won as president.

by Anonymousreply 164Last Sunday at 7:41 AM

To add to R164, I have gay Costa Rican friends who are a married couple, one of whom was the Minister of Tourism. An openly gay man being given charge of one of the largest sectors of the Costa Rican economy is no small thing. Not only are Ticos a generally happy, friendly people they are well educated and pragmatic.

I forgot to add, Punta Arenas is a rough port city and has a druggy, trashy reputation much like Daytona Beach or Myrtle Beach. It’s not where I would choose to live if I moved to Costa Rica.

R164 is full of it. Obama was not "against gay marriage" - he came to support it long before most of your Republican buddies did. And he legalized gays in the military

Just checked his Xvideos profile and wow, dude's videos were really popular. The recent ones have over half a million to 2 million views. The videos are problematic for sure because it seems he was recording them without consent.

One of the comments under one of videos goes like this:

[quote]Hey Swell, I believe we met about 6 years ago to this date. I've sent you a message request. Hoping we can talk. I just want to make sure that there will be zero videos of me uploaded, if you did for some reason record our meet ups. I will have no problem taking it up with authorities if I do find any, so I think it is in your best interest to message me back. This is 100% real. I will tell you your name and what city you lived in if you accept my message request, to verify this is not fake.

by Anonymousreply 171Last Monday at 7:09 AM

People really want this to be a revenge murder despite the CR police saying it was gang related. They just will not accept a random murder. Be grateful! A gay guy is dead. Be happy—right? Not the way you wanted him dead but dead nonetheless.
