Paul Harper at NZ Herald reports:
The man who murdered New Zealander Emily Longley has reportedly been beaten up in jail and had his cell torched, after he pinned up photos of his victim in his cell and bragged about receiving fan mail.
Good to see even prisoners have a sense of decency.
Elliot Turner, 20, was sentenced to life in prison with a 16-year non-parole period for strangling Emily Longley, 17, in Bournemouth, England, in 2011.
Doesn’t sound like he is very remorseful. I hope the UK Parole Board keep this in mind one day.
According to the Daily Star, Turner had plastered photos of Emily on the walls of his cell at HMP Swaleside in Kent. He also reportedly spoke about the day he would be released and return to his life of “champagne, Bentleys and birds”
If I recall his parents spoilt him rotten and even helped cover up his killing. I suspect they are the ones promising him how good life will be once he is out.
A source told the paper that Turner, the son of a millionaire jeweller, had bragged to fellow inmates about fan mail he had received from women before Christmas. It was after this he was attacked by some of the inmates.
The source accused Turner of reporting the attack to staff at the category B prison, which was followed with Turner’s cell being torched.
“Turner is a gobby little prick who has had it coming for some time,” the prison source told the paper.
A gobbly little prick. What a concise character description.
