Tony King - Sucide
Evil Tony King was a classic case of too-good-to-be-true. Outwardly he seemed like a kind, caring, man, a loving boyfriend who was an excellent candidate for stepdad to Bianca's brood. In reality, he was a child abuser.
He groomed Bianca's step-daughter Whitney, manipulating the vulnerable young girl until she fell under his spell. They began a sexual relationship which was halted after he was sent to prison for assaulting a teenage boy who propositioned Whitney.
Tony began to lose interest in Whitney as she approached 16 years. However, Whitney believed that they would run away on her birthday, and told Bianca so on the day.
Sickened at what had been happening under her nose, Bianca called the police. Tony was sent down for 13 years after Whitney realised the extent of his manipulation and testified against him in court.
He was arrested and sentenced to a full life sentence and he will have a hard life in prison.
In 2013, a stranger called Pogo comes to see Whitney. He gives her a letter from Tony saying that he still loves her so Whitney decides to see him but she gets devastating news saying that Tony killed himself in prison.
