If it's the same guy my mate thinks it is, then he used to work with him and he says he's always been an absolute nutjob with anger issues.
Well lets hope proper justice is served, as it should always be. Some sentences these days are ridiclous!

Well no one in there right mind would have inflicted such injuries, he must have been in some crazed mental state to do that. Self control amongst younger people seems to have vanished. It’s a pity no one identified this flaw in him earlier.

It begs the question, do the ‘shoot em up” console games desensitise people.

GTA was one of those games that was wrong. And putting an age restriction on them does not work.
Millions of people play those games, so no I don't believe you can blame them for a handfull of nutters.
Back in the day listening to NWA didn't make me grab an AK and shoot up Leyland when I was a school kid either.

RIP to the young girl and may justice be done.

Nice One.

But it’s not just her family northender, imagine if he was your son or brother or cousin, how are his family, they aren’t really to blame, they also must be going through some horrendous emotions.
He’s in custody, should they visit him, what a nightmare it must be for them also.
As a family will they be blamed?
It’s truly awful when you think about the effects it will have on relatives on all sides.
I said exactly the same to my workmates this mornin and the effect on the witnesses too.

A 25 year old guy called Benjamin Topping of St Georges Road has been charged with her murder. Lancs Constabulary have also referred themselves to the Independant Office of Police Conduct because there had been contact between Rosie & the force prior to her death, but they haven't elaborated on that.

Aye, that's the guy.

Shit could hit the fan if she's contacted the police and they've done nothing.

That poor girl, how afraid must she have been. It makes me feel sick thinking about it.

She only started going out with him in December, so it's spiralled out of control very quickly. I think her ex partner was abusive to her too and he is in jail now. She's certainly had an unhappy time of it with men and tragically it has cost her life

I hope the impact on her little boy of so much violence is dealt with. That poor little soul would have seen so much. Having said that, although I didn’t know Rosie personally, I have read what an upbeat and happy girl she was, hopefully that touched her son more deeply. God bless him anyway, I hope his young life gets blessed for many years to come.

Someone has posted on FB that earlier in the night she had called them and they had her safe in a police van while they looked for him. Couldn't find him so let her out and had her walk home alone. She didn't make it home.

I hope that doesn't turn out to be what I think it means................. Maybe I'm overaecting but the phrase " I'm sorry but there's nothing we can do until a crime is committed " springs to mind.

Very sorry if I've misinterpreted.

No someone is claiming it, that there was an earlier incident, she was in the van, but they couldn’t find him so they left her to walk hone alone, I’m wondering if she has insisted that she would be ok, if she has, they can’t force her to stay in the vehicle.? Because l would have thought under the circumstances it is police policy to ensure their safety? It’s all speculation though at the end of the day. Hope he gets life.

Have a look on the Preston Police Facebook page and judge for yourself the feel of the guys posts to me are that it's legit
That guy is, I presume, the David Aspden currently on the run for alleged grooming / sexual offences.

Just been told ( emphasis ) theres a third person and the one in custody has been treated for cowbar injuries....................... Social media eh?

Think I'll butt out of this one until more comes to light.
