David Iwo Wiki – David Iwo Biography

David Iwo is a smirking murderer who bludgeoned a 69-year-old retiree to death with a hammer told psychiatrists he would never have stopped killing gay men if he had not been caught.

Iwo admitted he would never have stopped killing and robbing gay men until he was caught.


He is 23 years old.

Martin Decker Murder

“Remorseless” Iwo advertised his services for sex online and tricked former Crown Prosecution Service lawyer Martin Decker into arranging a meeting at his flat in Vyner Croft, Prenton, on the evening of March 6 this year.

Drifter Iwo traveled from London to Merseyside by train and launched a relentless, sustained, and determined attack almost immediately after being invited inside and offered a drink by his unsuspecting victim.

A forensic pathologist concluded Iwo struck Mr. Decker around nine times to his head, causing catastrophic injuries, including multiple skull fractures.

The killer then helped himself to £250 in cash Mr. Decker had earlier withdrawn from a cash machine before stealing valuable items including his laptop, phone, watch, and Bose sound system before fleeing the scene with the stolen goods in plastic bags.

David Iwo Arrested

Merseyside Police was commended for their fast-moving investigation – with Iwo’s arrest at a London hotel on March 10 considered almost certain to have prevented him from launching similar attacks.

Iwo, who had also admitted torturing and killing around 30 cats, was handed a life sentence at Preston Crown Court today with a minimum term of 33 years after previously pleading guilty to Mr. Decker’s murder.


Minutes before the hearing was due to start, Iwo sacked his legal team and barrister, David Temkin QC, telling the court that he wanted to “speak for himself” and that you “can’t blame your parents for everything.”

However, when Judge Mr. Justice Jacobs asked him later in the hearing whether he wanted to address the court, Iwo told him to “disregard” any documents prepared in his defense and replied: “I have got nothing to say.”

The youthful-looking and lightly built killer, who appeared in court via video-link from HMP Manchester, grinned and laughed at times during the hearing as chilling details of his crimes were described.

Alan Kent, QC, prosecuting, told the court how Iwo advertised his sexual services on an app called Viva Street and was contacted by Mr. Decker on Friday, March 5.

Iwo made chilling admissions to the doctors, stating that he tortured and murdered cats and laughed as their owners put out desperate appeals on Facebook to find their missing pets.

He said he realized he could advertise his sexual services but then attack and rob gay men, knowing they would probably not report it – and compared the incidents to “robbing drug dealers.”

Iwo described the attack as a “progression” from his “hobby” of killing cats.

Mr. Kent described how Mr. Decker’s elderly mum became concerned when she had not heard from him the following day, and that evening his brother, Jeremy Decker, attended his flat and let himself in.

He described a horrifying scene when he found his brother’s body at the back of the flat and signs of an untidy search.
