    UK - Amy Williams, 14, pregnant, strangled, Telford, Shropshire, 27 Dec 2004

    Has anyone been reading on this? It's so sad. Her body was found in a church graveyard 12 hours after last being seen.

    Read about it here

    That's really sad!! I am shocked, though, that her family acted like it was a fine thing for her to be pregnant at 14!! But a very sad story. Likely it will end up being someone she knew, maybe even the father of her baby.

    The second article states "Amy was pregnant by her former boyfriend James Love, 16, a JJB sports shop worker."

    The third article states "A spokesman said the arrested man is 27 and comes from Telford."

    The suspect was not the father of her baby.

    Prayers for healing, and prayers for justice for these two lives lost.
    With love and HOPE, Lanie

    From May 2005:

    http://www.theguardian.com/uk/2005/m....faisalalyafai

    An unemployed man was jailed for a minimum of 30 years yesterday for the "awful and cowardly" murder of pregnant teenager Amy Williams.

    Philip Raymond Powell, 43, admitted killing and raping the 14-year-old as she walked home from a family Christmas party last year...

    Powell was caught after DNA samples taken from Amy's body were matched on a database to his profile... He told police he had seen her on a number of occasions but did not know her.
