So in the news right now, Nathan Matthews and his girlfriend Shauna Hoare (Phillips) have been arrested on suspicion of the murder of Becky Watts. What makes this really chilling is the fact that Nathan is her stepbrother and Shauna actually knew her. Another odd thing is that up until recently, Shauna shared multiple links to articles about Becky on her Facebook page.
After glancing at Shauna’s FB, I was reminded of those stories you hear about killers who collect newspaper clippings of anything to do with the people they murdered. They basically “get off” on the media buzz. To them, perhaps it’s nothing more than an innocent little game?
As of right now, no one knows for sure if Nathan and Shauna are involved but it’s not looking good at all. On twitter someone shared this:
Only time will tell.
Edit: Stepbrother of 16-year-old is charged with her murder and his girlfriend is charged with perverting the course of justice (5th March 2015)
