John Snavely Isn't the Only Dancing Bear Porn Star to be Charged With Murder

When Snavely joined Dancing Bear sometime in 2010, he was a prized recruit. But he wasn't the only stud in the studio's stable.

Among the other porn stars -- paid $500 per day to dress up in a furry bear suit, strip off said suit, and have sex with whatever women they see -- was a 27-year-old bisexual British DJ named Jason Andrews. The competition made for a turgid atmosphere on set.

"Between the five of us, it could get kind of aggressive," says a performer we'll call Sam (He asked that New Times not use his real name).

One morning in May of 2010, Andrews didn't show up for work. It was only the next day that Snavely, Sam, and the other performers learned that Andrews had been arrested for murder.

Authorities accused Anthony and his porn star girlfriend Amanda Logue, AKA Sunny Dae, of plotting to kill a Tampa tattoo artist named Dennis 'Scooter' Abrahamsen.
