    I wondered about that saw this story earlier today and thought she looked a little bit Filipino and the name seemed potentially Filipino but I got the feeling she was British maybe the child of immigrants.

    Very sad.

    There has been a spate of disappearing women in the last few days.

    Wasn't the Chinese incident something to do with family or within the community?The family take-away was screened off and all involved were known to each other.

    We all know that these dreadful things happen from time to time but I wonder if the Covid-19 pandemic has tipped many people over the edge. :(
    Let's be honest, we have all suffered in varying degrees since January 2019.
    Men, women, boys and girls have all been hit hard.

    Cases of suspected student suicide since the pandemic:

    Seems a man has been charged for the murder of the lady and one child, but the second child is ok?

    Such awful events (which make me ashamed to be a man) should not become any kind of competition, but I'm surprised at how little coverage this story has received in comparison to the poor lady allegedly killed by an off duty policeman in London.

    BBC News - Sarah Everard: Human remains found in Kent woodland
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-56355019

    One victim is a middle class, white, blonde Durham Uni graduate. The other a Filipino with 2 kids. At least 12 articles on the BBC app about Sarah Everard and just 2 about Bennilyn Burke.

    The circumstances of the death of Bennilyn *and* her daughter are possibly more disturbing. Her young son was spared death and must have stayed in that house with the guy who has been charged for God knows how long. What that kid might have experienced is unimaginable.

    8th of March this year recently happens, my daughter and her Filipina friend was attacked by a white man and punched them both on the face in Leeds, as a result, my daughter has bruises and her friend has split on her lips and chipped one of her tooth. Fortunately someone knew the bugger who assulted them and the police arrested the bugger. My daughter then gave the bugger a good beating with her skateboard. What the bugger don’t know is that my daughter is a fighter and will not let him off the hook easily. :boxer::boxer::boxer:

    Abosulute terrible crime the woman has such a kind face.

    I feel as someone who lived in Clapham in 2016 and Brixton in 2017 that I speak from experience of what life is like there.

    This is about police and not domestic violence. And the media who cover this as some kind of woman's justice are deflecting the blame from the police, this is not in any way a domestic crime, this is the police who committed the crime.

    Compared to where I live now, I can say that in Brixton all police are undercover and all police cars are undercover, you only ever know they are police when they put the blue light on the roof of a car.


    There is no doubt that if police were not undercover 99 percent of the time in this area, it would not have resulted in Sarah's death. The fault lies at the polices feet.

    I thought they arrested a man in Scotland for her murder and also for the wee one.
    The police can't be everywhere all of the time :eek:

    Unfortunately, the rogue element exists in all walks of life, and it is unfair to tarnish all police officers with the same brush.

    Nobody is perfect.

    By all press accounts Sarah's body was found in a builders bag and had to be identified using dental records. Horrible crime
