    UK - Kayleigh Haywood, 15, Ibstock, Leicestershire, 13 Nov 2015 - #2

    Landscape gardener and his neighbour appear in court over grooming, rape and murder of Kayleigh Haywood



    A landscape gardener has appeared in court charged with the murder and rape of schoolgirl Kayleigh Haywood.
    The 15-year-old sparked a huge police search when she disappeared last Friday after being dropped off outside Ibstock Community College, Leicestershire, by her parents.
    Kayleigh’s body was discovered in a field on Wednesday night a few hundred yards from where she was last seen.
    Horticulturalist Stephen Beadman was charged with murder and rape last night. He made a brief appearance at Leicester Magistrates’ Court today accused of the offences.

    [...]

    Beadman’s next door neighbour, Luke Harlow, also made a brief appearance accused of grooming Kayleigh, of Measham, Leicestershire, and two counts of sexual activity with a child.

    A bit more info here on LHs charge

    Dark-hared Harlow, of heavy build, was wearing a grey sweat top and bottoms.

    He stands accused of grooming a girl under 16 years on line for sex.

    He is also accused of two charges of unlawful sexual touching of a 15-year-old girl between Thursday, November 12 and Monday, November 16.



    And this part. about the cases being linked, so doesnt look as though LH left Kayleigh and she just happened to then fall into SBs path.

    Alan Murphy, prosecuting, opposed bail.

    He said that the cases against both defendants were linked.

    Harlow's solicitor Tarsem Salhan made no application for bail.




    And this - isnt it a bit early for a CMH ?

    Mr Clarkson remanded Harlow in custody until December 18 to Leicester Crown Court for a plea and management hearing.

    Not sure if anybody's quoted LH's mother's comment. Looks like she may have been trying to let people know he didn't just watch horror stuff. Interesting to see her use past tense when describing him too.

    'Luke's just an overgrown kid, we've always said that. He liked Del Boy, he liked The Simpsons, he liked Family Guy, Two and a Half Men."

    Shades of the Ched Evans case ( footballer charged with rape, friend found not guilty with same person, same night )

    Or theres video/CCTV footage?

    very secluded... i.e. right at the edge of the development, and the van could be reversed right up to the front door of either.

    So SB's CCTV cameras might have LH's covered property?

    Ok, please someone tell me there is no chance he will get bailed? Would the bail chance increase if he has indeed confessed?!

    Consent is 16 here in the UK. I don't think we have the 4 yr rule - once you're over the age of consent that's it, as far as I'm aware.

    I recognise that I may be in a minority, possibly a minority of 1, but I am not seeing this through the same lenses as I see others here are.

    You see when I was a teenager I too lied to my parents about where I was going and about what I was doing, and I had underage sex.

    Unless more evidence comes out which leads to other charges being brought against LH, I can only see him as doing what millions of people worldwide do also. In some countries it is legal and in others it is illegal, but as it currently stands, I am not seeing any reason to think there was intention to harm Kayleigh from LH.

    Teenagers are very willful and we can say that if she hadn't met LH she wouldn't have met SB and she would be safe today, but I'm not seeing the sick-inducing side of this. It is evident that he had discussed Kayleigh with his family, probably lied about her age, but I've not seen anything to say that she was forced to go, or was immature and naive enough to not know that they would probably have sex.

    Perhaps I need a wake up call. If it was my 15 year old daughter say, (who is now 22) and obviously without the rape and murder, I would perhaps look at why she was needing this attention from an older man, rather than condemning her or him for sexual behaviour. The internet has played a role in this, but in my day I managed to carry off my own behaviour without internet or a mobile phone. She was a year away from the age of consent. I went to an all girls school, and my own experience was not uncommon. If Kayleigh wasn't going to come to harm with LH, then I see this as undesirable but not that unusual.

    I think it right that he is charged and suitably punished, but I don't, with the current charges, see him particularly as a predator or a paedophile.

    I'm not saying I can't understand other people's attitudes to this, but I would like to know if my moral boundaries are totally screwed and if they are that different from others.

    Re the Sexual Touching - Post 3 on this thread - I wonder if that is all LH will admit to, and the police have no evidence to prove otherwise.

    Very rare for a murder suspect to get bail ( I have read of it one time, and it had a disastrous ending ).

    Not sure that confessing would help him at all.

    If he's asking for bail I'm assuming he's denying the charges. You'd have to be mental to admit raping and killing somebody then ask for bail.

    Maybe. The fact that he did "only" touch makes me think he did know she was under 16.
