Man set to appear Monday for allegedly killing two men he met on dating app


COLUMBUS (WCMH) — The man indicted and accused of killing two men he met on dating app Grindr will be arraigned on Monday. Talent Bradley, 19, was initially scheduled to appear in court Friday morning for a preliminary hearing, but the hearing was canceled because of this week’s indictment.

Bradley was arrested August 12 at his home. He is charged with stabbing to death two central Ohio men that police say he met on the app.

On August 14, Bradley was assigned a $1 million bond for each of the two men he’s accused of killing, for a combined total of $2 million. A new bond could be set Monday.

Police allege that Bradley stabbed to death 62-year old Robert Goodrich of Mohican Way in Westerville on May 26. That same day, the body of 63-year old Randy Gwirtz of Columbus was found on Fahlander Drive South. He had also been stabbed to death.

A grand jury indicted Bradley on 14 counts, including aggravated murder, aggravated burglary, and tampering with evidence.
