This former choir boy served in an Italian elite army commando
unit before dedicating his life to sadomasochism and hairdressing. In 1975
Michael moved to London where he started as a hairdresser and worked his way up
to owning a styling boutique. He also racked up about 4,000 gay lovers and
developed a taste for the whip and built a modern torture chamber in his house.
It all turned ugly in March of 1986 when Lupo was diagnosed with having AIDS.
He then started his bloody rampage against the gay night life scene. Over a period of two months he slaughtered four men who he picked up in gay bars and left their bodies slashed and smeared with excrement. After two potential victims escaped, police arrested Mike on May 15. He received four life sentences and presently police in Berlin, Hamburg, Los Angeles and NYC are investigating mutilation deaths that might be linked to Lupo's travels.
