UK - Three guilty of murder after body was buried in suitcase (Stuart Wareham, Lee Wareham & Benjamin Walter)

And yet more proof that the online sex offender hit-list needs to be taken offline and used by police in the UK and elsewhere, and the article above has video that captured most of their crimes via CCTV.


Three men who killed a Boscombe man and then buried him in a shallow grave in woodland have been convicted of murder at Winchester Crown Court today.

Stuart Raymond Wareham of Bournemouth, aged 26, his half-brother Lee Raymond Wareham, 33, and 22-year-old Benjamin Henry Walter, both of no fixed abode, killed [name withheld] in his flat in Cecil Road, Boscombe, on Thursday June 7 2012.

On Sunday June 10 2012 Dorset Police received a report that [name withheld] was missing from his flat. The circumstances were suspicious and it was believed, but not confirmed, that he may have been killed.

On Wednesday June 13 2012 Mr [name withheld]'s body was excavated from a shallow grave in woods. He had been buried in a large suitcase and had suffered horrendous injuries.

An inquest into the death of [name withheld]  who was originally from Doncaster, was opened and adjourned at Bournemouth Coroner's Court. Evidence was heard that the 57-year-old died from multiple blunt force injuries.

During the trial, evidence of Mr [name withheld]'s previous sexual offending was publicised but addressing the jury the judge, The Honourable Mr. Justice Griffith Williams, said: “All human life has value and [name withheld] is entitled to the same justice as victims whose reputations are exemplary."
