I’m halfway through watching this BBC3 program. I know it’s about the main character’s murder, so it’s not going to come as a shock. You can see how her boyfriend is insecure from day 1, when he has no reason to be. He’s good looking, she adored him at the start, but you can see she’s scared of him. If you haven’t seen this already, I recommend you do, but I get the feeling it’s one of them things you can only watch the once. I’ll post more later once I’ve watched the whole. It’s still being shown on Three, and will be available on the iPlayer for a while longer. For those outside the UK, I’m sure there are “ways” you can see it too.
I take it back. It was shocking. I’m fighting back tears right now. Reece got life, with a min of 15-20 years. I feel sorry for her, but the one I feel the most sorry for is her daughter, who saw it all and may grow up thinking that kind of behaviour is normal, when it’s anything but. She was 21 when she was killed, that’s no age to die. I don’t have words strong enough to describe how I feel towards her boyfriend.
