Two Burglars Sexually Assaulted By ‘Gay Sex Predator’ After Breaking Into His Home Is Fake News

By Shawn Rice

Two burglars allegedly being sexually assaulted by “gay sex predator” for five straight days is fake news. There is no truth to a report that two intruders were repeatedly sodomized after they broke into the man’s home. Where did this fake news originate?

In October 2016, viral entertainment web sites such as Yikes.com published articles this outrageous story. In the report, two unfortunate burglars had been sexually assaulted for five straight days after they broke into the house of a “notorious gay sex predator” named Harry “The Wolfman” Harrington. You can read text from that fake story below.

Two burglars got more than they bargained for recently after picking the wrong house to break into. Garfield Morgan, 54, and his 36 year old accomplice friend Kim Gorton are both career burglars, having stolen from hundreds of homes in their lives. But it’s unlikely they’ll go back to crime after the nasty episode they experienced in the home of one Florida man…

Harry Harrington is 6’7″ and weighs over 300lbs. It’s pure muscle. He’s a notorious gay s*x predator who has served time in jail for numerous sexual assaults. An aggressive and predatory offender, he’s not the kind of man you want to annoy. But that’s just what Morgan and Gorton did that fateful night.

Harrington, known as ‘The Wolfman‘, easily overpowered the men, tied them up and assaulted them for five full days. Police only intervened after a neighbor heard the men’s cries for help and called them.

Here are some examples of people sharing the fake news article on social media.

However, there was no truth to this story. According to Snopes, the newspaper clipping shown above originated with the Sunday Sport, a British tabloid that publishes a mixture of softcore pornography, gossip, and outlandish stories. Some of these outrageous stories include headlines such as “Donkey Robs Bank,” and “Aliens Turned Our Son Into a Fish Finger.”

The photographs included with the fake story were also questionable. The image allegedly showing Harrington has been circulating online since at least 2009, and one of the mugshots allegedly showing either “Garfield Morgan” or “Kim Gorton” actually depicts a man named Michael Patrick Kelly who was arrested in 2004 for lewd conduct with a minor.
