Former Thomas Tallis pupil Stephen Ojerinola, who boasted to pals he "would die for money", dealt drugs in the Kidbrooke area before he went missing in April last year, jurors heard.
His body was eventually found by police last November buried beneath a hastily-assembled shed at Lynsted Gardens, Eltham, where one of his alleged killers William Regan lived. He had multiple stab wounds.Such a heartwarming modern tale, eh?
The witness, who came forward to police in November after seeing messages about her friend's death on Facebook, said she had last seen her friend in April.
She claimed: "He said that he was going to rob Will for money and that was it and he'd be back in a few hours. He never came back."But you didn’t do anything about it then?
After Mr Ojerinola went missing, she became concerned but said other male friends did not.
She said: "I don't think they think like us girls. They don't use their brains. Especially men that are from the streets - all they care about is themselves."Doesn’t sound to me as though the distaff side have much to boast about in the IQ department, actually.
She said: "He was just a strong person. He cared a lot for people.
"He wasn't heartless or nothing like that. He was nice."Apart from the drug dealing and the attempted robbery, that is..?
