However Joshua had been planning to kill Rebecca for quite some time in many different ways, and talked about it for many months before and spread vicious rumours around the school about Rebecca, who was a family girl, beautiful and intelligent who wanted to become a Barrister. She had a large circle of friends.
Rebecca was lured into a woodland by Joshua, who played on her trust before beating her skull in with a rugby ball-sized rock and leaving her face down in the rain - at the time of the attack the two were separated and it was believed Rebecca had hoped their meeting was a sign Joshua was going to renew the relationship as he had been telling her that they would get back together for weeks.
All three friends celebrated afterwards with a police station across the road. None of them reported the murder but continued their lives as normal, not a second thought to what the psycho (he has been called this in the British press and he proudly called himself psycho on his bebo account) did.
Davies has been found guilty and given a life sentence with a minimum of 14 years for his crime.
