Mother Seeks Justice In Son’s Gay Bondage Death

Gay BondageA grief-stricken British woman wants to see a Cape Cod man charged with her son’s death, which occurred during a Wolcott Road sex bondage session last April.
Scott Vincent is the sole survivor of a multi-day sex session in the cellar of a neatly kept clapboard house that led to Adrian Exley’s death and homeowner Gary LeBlanc’s suicide.
Rhode Island’s coroner said Exley, 32, died of asphyxiation while wearing a rubber restraining suit on April 23 — four days after he traveled from England to Lynn to meet LeBlanc after encountering the 48-year-old oil executive on a gay bondage Web site.
According to a lawsuit filed against LeBlanc’s estate by Exley’s mother Margaret Horner and the British man’s siblings, Vincent participated in the sex sessions and helped LeBlanc dispose of Exley’s body.
“To me it was murder. I want Scott Vincent to be charged,” Horner said.
Horner traveled to Lynn last month to meet police, who searched for her son for two months until his body was discovered inside a sleeping bag underneath an inch of dirt in a Rhode Island state park.
She met Lt. Glen Deveau, the lead investigator in Exley’s disappearance, and Detective Mark Lee during her November trip and said the pair treated her like a friend.
“I want to thank them with all my heart for what they have done.”
On Nov. 12, one day before Exley’s birthday, she visited the site where, according to the suit, Vincent and LeBlanc buried Exley. She placed flowers on the burial spot and “said a few prayers and how much we miss him.”
“I had to do it for my own sanity. I still can’t believe it happened. I always expected him to have been kidnapped and let go.”
Attempts to reach Vincent Monday were unsuccessful. Horner hopes her son’s death provides a warning to people who search out sex in person or over the Internet.
She described her son as “a happy chappie” who grew up close to his sisters, Rebecca and Vanessa, and gravitated toward acting after completing his education.
He was a recovering drug abuser and male stripper whose top billing in an English club was a point of pride for Horner and Exley’s siblings.
“We backed him. I didn’t mind him being gay. I don’t have a problem with that at all,” Horner said.
Mother and son exchanged their last words online when Exley wrote his sister Rebecca while Horner was present and informed them about his April trip to the U.S.
“We just took it as another adventure for Adrian,” she said.
After Exley missed his return flight to England, Horner said family members panicked. Exley told his sister before he traveled that LeBlanc had asked him not to tell anyone where precisely he was going or who he was meeting, but Rebecca did find a telephone number for LeBlanc.
She called him and he told her Exley was visiting friends in Boston.
“She thought he was lying,” Horner said.
Exley’s loved ones spent the remainder of April and May and most of June in contact with Deveau or sitting by the telephone waiting for news.
“Rebecca was on the phone day and night. She was like a British bulldog. She knew something, but kept a lot from me for my own sake,” Horner said.
She feels sorry for LeBlanc’s loved ones but wishes LeBlanc had heeded the initial advice the lawsuit claims Vincent gave him and sought medical aid for Exley.
“If they had just got him to a hospital so I could have seen him.”
