Maybe You Should Look A Little Closer To Home Then?

After the 19-year-old was found guilty of murder at Chester Crown Court today, Alex's family said: 'We have never come across a more selfish, cold and calculating person.'

Apart from your son, who was blackmailing his killer

The trial heard Alex had contacted Mason's then girlfriend, Caitlyn Lancashire, in November 2019 and told her he had been sending 'flirty' messages and an explicit picture and video.
Mason denied the allegations to his girlfriend but began making payments to Alex's bank account at around the same time.
By the time of Alex's death, Mason had transferred more than £2,200 and was asking friends and family to borrow money, the court heard.

My normal urge for sympathy for the victim is having to work hard on this one...

Its weird, when a man goes armed with a weapon to a meeting with someone who has been mentally abusing him for some time and bludgeons him to death, thats stone cold murder. But when a woman goes armed with a weapon to the house of the man who has (allegedly) been abusing her for years and bludgeons him to death, thats not murder at all, and everyone says he deserved it and she gets the life insurance money to boot.
