John Snavely: From San Antonio to Porn Stardom to a Murder Charge

Categories: Longform

John Snavely was raised on the bad side of San Antonio, but he did have some assets, like a large penis and a willingness to use it.

From dancing at Alamo City gay bars, he got recruited to star in gay and straight porn in Miami, earning big cash, taking the best drugs and being chased by members of both sexes.

"He loved to spend money, man," says [a friend]. "Watches, shoes, clothes, name-brand shit. He felt like a nobody if he didn't have a BMW or some kind of ridiculous car. That was his feeling about himself: He needed it, he deserved it."

What would be a dream nightmare for some turned into a nightmarish tale of torture and murder for Snavely.

You can read all about it in this week's cover feature, "Champ: The Dark Tale of the Porn Star, the Dead Millionaire and the Tortured Beauty Queen."
