    UK - Shana Grice, 19, murdered at her Brighton home, 25 Aug 2016

    Hopefully the police will get forensics to charge someone quickly. Not sure what to make on the arrested man's name and picture being made public, unusual for the UK these days (or so it seems to me).



    A teenage girl complained to police that she was being stalked before she was found murdered in her home.

    Shana Grice, 19, was discovered in her flat in the Portslade area near Brighton, after she had failed to turn up for work on Thursday morning.

    It has now been revealed that before her death Shana had complained to officers that she was being stalked by a local man she had met in a pub called Mike Lane, 27.

    [...]

    Officers later arrested a 27-year-old man on suspicion of her murder, but he was released on police bail after being held for 48 hours.

    I read about this poor girl this morning

    I too thought it a bit unusual to release name and photo when he hasn't been charged ... unless it's done as part of the police plan?

    27 year old man re-arrested in the murder of Shana Grice.

    I'm assuming they have found some evidence now.

    Quick question, and I will have to say I've not read every article, but when Shana reported to police that she was being stalked, did she know that it was this guy?

    I believe she knew who it was, at least that's the impression I get from this:
    _______________

    It has now been revealed that before her death Shana had complained to officers that she was being stalked by a local man she had met in a pub called Mike Lane, 27.

    Friends claim that she had 'feared for her life' due to his obsessive behaviour and that she had called police after he had parked his car outside her home and watched her.

    This poor girl must have been absolutely petrified for the last few months of her life.

    An "obsessed" ex-boyfriend slit a teenager's throat before setting fire to her bedroom, a court has heard.

    Michael Lane, 27, is accused of murdering 19-year-old Shana Grice after she renewed a relationship with her previous boyfriend Ashley Cooke.

    Miss Grice, 19, was found dead at her house in Chrisdory Road in the Mile Oak, Portslade in August last year, Lewes Crown Court heard.

    Mr Lane, of Thornhill Rise, Portslade, denies murder.

    The tyre and exhaust fitter had been told by police to stay away from Miss Grice after allegedly stalking and harassing her in the months leading up to her death.

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-sussex-39206436
    The alarm was raised when Shana failed to turn up to work at a delivery wholesaler .

    Her boyfriend Ashley Cooke told The Sun he had left Shana’s home at 7am that morning, giving her a kiss and a cuddle on the doorstep.

    Just hours later she was dead.

    Devastated Ashley said the pair were planning to start a family together, and were due to attend his uncle’s wedding the next day.

    [...]

    Lane, Shana’s ex-boyfriend, became “obsessed” with her after she got back together with previous partner Ashley, Lewes Crown Court heard.

    The court heard the pair met while working at Brighton Fire Alarms in June 2015, but by the start of 2016 the on-off relationship deteriorated.

    The tyre and exhaust fitter had been told by police to stay away from Shana after allegedly stalking and harassing her in the months leading up to her death.

    Mr Bennetts said: 'During their relationship he stalked her. He put a tracker on her car and followed her movements.

    'The obsession with her translated into killing her. He would not allow anyone else to be with her.'

    Officers from Sussex Police spoke to Lane about his behaviour and warned him to stay away from her.

    Mr Bennetts said: 'On August 25, after Ashley Cooke had left the address, Mr Lane went into the address and slit her throat and, no doubt intending to destroy any evidence of his presence in the house, he set fire to the room.'

    Miss Grice reported Lane to the police for stalking in February last year, the court heard.

    Her car had been damaged and Lane was told by officers to stay away from her.

    Then Mr Cooke reported damage to his car and found a note left on it which said: “Dear Ash, Shana has always and always will cheat on you. Happy New Year.”

    In March he followed her, pulled her phone away from her ear and pulled her hair, Mr Bennetts said.

    He said: “He also stole a key from her back door in July when he went to get his belongings. In the early hours of the next morning Miss Grice heard noises and footsteps approaching her bedroom. She hid under her duvet and heard her bedroom door open and a man breathing in her room.

    “He remained for about a minute before he left. When she was satisfied he had gone, Miss Grice got up, looked out her bedroom window, and saw Lane walking away from the property.”

    Later that day Lane was arrested and he had the back door key on him.

    Mr Bennetts said: “He admitted in interview he had taken the key and had gone into her room, this is his account, to talk to her but upon entry realised it was wrong and left. As a result of his behaviour he was cautioned.”

    The next day, on July 10, Miss Grice reported receiving around seven calls from a withheld number. Someone was breathing heavily but did not speak.

    Lane also followed her while she was driving two days later, the court heard.

    Little bit more.

    Prosecutors claim Lane refused to accept his and Shana's break-up and decided no one else would be allowed to form a relationship with her.

    A packed Lewes Crown Court heard he told a friend he was unhappy she had "gone back to her ex" and said: "She'll pay for what she's done."

    [..]

    Two days before Shana was killed, she met Lane at a hotel in Hove where it was agreed their relationship was over.

    However, he refused to accept it, the jury heard.

    [...]


    Two seats of fire were revealed: one on the carpet at the foot of the bed and the other on the double bed.

    A box of matches were found on the floor and there were suggestions an "ignitable liquid" was used
