Shane Chartres-Abbott the 'Vampire' prostitute who claimed he needed to drink blood to survive 'was murdered as revenge for vicious rape of Client

A male prostitute and self-proclaimed vampire was gunned down in a suspected revenge killing for the vicious rape of a female client, it emerged today.

At the time of his murder in 2003, Shane Chartres-Abbott was awaiting trial for the attack on the victim, who told police he believed he was a vampire who needed to drink blood to survive.

The extraordinary new claim emerged as Australian police arrested Warren Thomas Shea, who has been accused of playing a 'critical' role in the execution of the 28-year-old, who was shot in front of his girlfriend and father outside his Melbourne home.

The victim was said to have suffered bite wounds and a severed tongue in the attack.

One man, known for legal reasons as JP, was jailed for life in 2008 after pleading guilty to the murder.
Police are also searching for a third suspect, Mark Adrian Perry, who is believed to be on the run in Thailand.

Shea, 40, is the second man to be charged with the killing. Read More
