Exclusive: Sean Cody’s Chase Is Now The Third Sean Cody Model On Trial For Murder

Posted April 30, 2017 by with 48 comments

scmurder1A Sean Cody solo model named “Chase” is about to stand trial for murder in Letcher County, Kentucky, and he’ll face the death penalty if convicted. “Chase” (legal name James R. Huffman) was arrested over three years ago after allegedly stabbing to death a college student on New Year’s Day in 2014. The trial was set to begin earlier this month, but due to an undisclosed incident with two witnesses (one a defense witness, one a prosecution witness), the judge issued a continuance. Via local news outlet EKB:

In Letcher Circuit Court this morning, the trial for James R. Huffman IV, who was set to stand trial beginning today, was continued. The special judge in the case told the jury pool, who was present in the courtroom, that an incident occurred over the weekend that affected two witnesses in the case. The judge said it would be impossible to go forward with Huffman’s trial today. The judge said he plans to have a phone conference with the attorneys in the case soon to determine how to go forward. Huffman and Patrick Smith are accused of stabbing Michael Hogg to death shortly after the turn of the new year 2014. The trials for the two men, who are being prosecuted separately, have been delayed several times.

scmurder2A motive for the 2014 murder has not been made public, but an earlier report reveals that Huffman (and the other suspect) may have stabbed multiple victims during the altercation:

Huffman is accused of stabbing Hogg in the chest around 2 a.m. Wednesday during an altercation near the entrance of a parking lot on Hayes Street, also known as Back Street, in downtown Whitesburg. Two other Letcher County men, David Christopher Puckett, 23, of Jenkins, and Stacy Phillips, 23, of Thornton, also suffered stab wounds during the altercation. Puckett was treated at Holston Valley Hospital in Kingsport, Tenn., but was later released. Phillips was treated at Whitesburg ARH and released. Authorities found Hogg, Puckett, Phillips and Samantha Mullins, 23, of Wise, Va., in a disabled vehicle in the parking lot of the Letcher County Recreation Center on River Road in Whitesburg after a call was made to 9-1-1. The four were trying to get to the Whitesburg hospital for treatment, but the vehicle’s tires had been slashed. Huffman and Smith were later taken into custody in the recreation center parking lot. The victims of the crime had been celebrating the coming of the New Year earlier in the night at StreetSide Grill and Bar on Main Street in Whitesburg. Video surveillance recorded at StreetSide shows no sign of an altercation occurring there or the presence there of either Huffman or Smith, owner Charlie Wright said Wednesday.

cmurde3While Huffman only appeared in one 2006 Sean Cody solo scene and is not well known, his arrest for murder and upcoming murder trial is significant in that he’s now the third Sean Cody model on trial for murder in the last five years, following Sean Cody’s Addison/Jason Andrews (who was convicted in 2012 of murdering a man with whom he and his girlfriend had an orgy) and Sean Cody’s Francisco/David Meza (who’s currently on trial for allegedly murdering his sugar daddy in Mexico). Meza could be convicted at any moment, as the jury in his murder trial has been deliberating for the past five days. Also of note, all three of the murder victims were stabbed to death, and all three of the murder suspects are gay-for-pay.

    Oh my goodness…

  • sanfv

    Once again Zach, great coverage and journalism.

    Prepare for countless sites and “blogs” to plagiarize you, Henny.

    • James Johnson III

      Or get bitchy and claim you didn’t break the story

  • Glenn Moore

    This whole gay for pay thing is really pissing me off. Yeah we all have that straight boy fantasy but, most of these fuckers wouldn’t give us the time of day, they only associate with us for financial gain but don’t do anything to prove themselves an ally

    • Nathan

      They get paid to jerk off. That’s it. They don’t get paid to jerk off and stand in front of Congress to fight for LGBT issues. Y’all take porn way too fucking seriously.

      • Glenn Moore

        I don’t take porn seriously by any means but gay porn stars actually have a dog in the fight for LGBT rights off screen as well as on screen. Honestly I’d rather see gay pornstars in gay porn

        • Jordy

          Why should a gay porn star be an ally though? No shade but what do they have to offer as an ally? Who’s gonna take some porn star seriously as the head of a movement?

        • Nathan

          “This whole gay for pay thing is really pissing me off.”

          “I don’t take porn seriously by any means”

          lol girl whatever hill you want to die on, but this is dumb as fuck.

    • Xzamilloh

      There is literally no difference between gay-for-pay porn stars and gay porn stars. Both fuck for money, aren’t giving any of us the time of day, and don’t do anything to prove themselves an ally, other than bouncing around in thongs and tacky Andrew Christian undies in a Pride Parade in Miami or LA

      • sanfv

        Whores get nothing.

      • Dan

        There actually is a difference.

        Gay porn stars are into men and often enjoy doing gay porn for that reason. Gay porn stars ARE attainable as sexual partners and even lovers- I speak from experience as I dated a porn star and had sex with at least two others (that I knew of) and it cost me nothing. For gay pornstars, you just have to be their type for them to take interest in you outside of a financial transaction. But if you are of the same gender you’re already halfway there if they happen to be a gay pornstar.

        And many gay pornstars do actually take an interest in the gay community. Some donate their time and money to gay causes and to interests that help serve the gay community. I can’t say that of all gay pornstars. But there are those that do exist. Probably in far greater numbers than the gay for pay who mostly exist in the gay world for the money and nothing more.

        Gay for pay are soley in it for the money and outside of being paid don’t have sex with other men and therefore totally and utterly exist outside of the gay world when the money stops. So, as little of an opinion as you have for pornstars, there is a difference.

        • Xzamilloh

          I don’t even know what this is about, but all I see is I commented 7 months ago, and this is long, so no thanks. Bye

  • badgamer1967
  • sam my

    There is obviously something in the lube at SC

  • Xzamilloh

    You know, if you have a business model that works for you, why mess with it? Between Sean Cody and MendotCom, you have a studio that acts as a launch pad for criminals, and another that acts as a work release program for when they get out. Good old gay porn synergy.

    • Zachary Sire

      oh my god

    • People always ask why these studios hire criminals and the answer is simple! They will literally do anything and everything for cheap, so why the hell not?

    • Scrapple

      If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it with psych evals and anger management.

    • moondoggy

      Rose: Yep, synergy, what would we ever do without it?
      Blanche: You have no idea what it means, do you?


    • Justin Trenton #NotMyPresident

      People forget it’s just porn. You just need to look good naked. They hire anyone based on just looks. Few care about anything they’ve done or said in their life. Even people at this site, I doubt a lot of them are influenced that much by their criminal history. If they are muscular, hot & hung, they won’t care. They might act like they care, but in the end, in porn, you just need a hot body to jerk off to.

    SC casts all the hottest murdere ….oh, never mind

    • Me2

      Somebody had to (almost) say it!

  • sxg

    If only he had stayed in porn he might have avoided the wholw thing! Or maybe the person he stabbed recognized him from his solo. Many SC fans are some serious hardcore stans.

    PS: so did you drag your drunkass to Blatino Oasis or did you just grindr all the hot meat over to your rental place to star in your own rendition of Black Balled, with Joey stealing the spotlight in his nonsexual role???

  • Scrapple

    The last Chase must be down. Not only does he have the stigma of being in that poorly received Brandon bottoming vid, but now he shares a porn name with someone on trial for murder.

    Who starts out their new year by stabbing someone? Trick, get your life. In prison.

    I’ve lost count, is the tally Sean Cody 3, Corbin Fisher 1?

    • Zachary Sire

      Don’t forget Lucas, who hired a convicted murderer AFTER the murderer served a sentence (for killing his own father and brother) and was released from prison.

      • Scrapple

        I definitely did not forget that. Or Lucas marketing him as the next big thing. Dickmatization is a serious disease.

      • sanfv

        Where is the line drawn nowadays?

        Since FB livestream murder is all the rage, can I bet some of my gay money that Vadim Black is going to strangle Lady Pimp Miss Katelin or one of her immediate family members within the next year?

        I can already see the headline “Told You So”.

        • Scrapple

          Pimps, like drunk drivers, are usually the ones who come out unscathed.

          If anything, I see that story going the route of “Looking for Mr. Goodbar” with Vadim playing the unfortunate role of Roseann Quinn. Well, either Vadim, Quentin Gainz or Johnny Rapid.

        • Maximus

          No, gurl—other way around. If any strangling is going to happen, it’s going to be the Lady Pimp doing the deed. She’s probably sufficiently experienced with the Dark Side of the Force to strangle people with her mind at this point.

          • sanfv

            The last time I lightsaber dueled her, she injured my fiance and I had to snatch the late Anakin Skywalker’s lightsaber from her greedy, greedy hands before having to postpone the duel because the al-right blew up the planet. I flew to the planet where Luke Skywalker was hiding at and handed him his fathers lightsaber and he looked at me, knew my failure of not defeating Lady Pimp and he said:”Giiiiiiiirrrrllll”.

        I sense a gay pornstar murderers ranked post in the near future!

      • David Lundquist

        im sure there is a fun Android game “story” lurking in this lurid mess somewhere.

    • Pertinax

      ” Who starts…someone ? ” : Maybe someone that mixed alcohol and drugs, for example.

    • Ed Woody

      It is weird how Sean Cody has had multiple models who kill others, whereas Corbin Fisher has had multiple models who have died themselves.

      • Scrapple

        I imagine they felt somewhat responsible for two of those deaths. The third was brought on by evil people.

  • peter

    slow news day?

    • Dazzer

      Dead slow for the victim, I guess

  • Marcus Collack

    In this Case Porn could have kept him out of trouble.
    Now I’m not saying that when Sean Cody, left Sean Cody, The Universe wasn’t really feeling it and felt some type of way, but…

  • peter

    Just read a bunch of articles I’ll bet that bombastic Hillbilly Elegy writer Trump supporter will come this Hillbilly heroin addict’s defense.

  • Me2

    Well, at least Florida is off the hook. For now.

  • Alexz

    Surprised this wasn’t in Florida.

  • emercycrite

    Damn he was hot. Should’ve stayed in porn.

  • greppinwolf

    It’s named exactly for that reason. Same for Whitesburg, GA.
