The Torture and Murder of Kelly Anne Bates

Hey everyone, I just found out about this case of a girl Kelly Anne Bates whom was brutally tortured and murdered by her much older lover in 1996. He was 49 and she was only 17! Anyway I wanted to know if any of you could find any actual photos of the crime scene or of her after her death.

I know some of you have some serious skills in finding rare pictures and videos. So here is the info from Wiki and thanks in advanced for any and all help.

Quote:
Kelly Anne Bates was a British teenager who was murdered in Manchester on 16 April 1996 when aged 17. She was tortured over a period of four weeks, including having her eyes gouged from their sockets up to three weeks before her death, by her partner James Patterson Smith before being drowned in a bathtub.

The murder inquiry was headed by Detective Sergeant Joseph Monaghan of Greater Manchester Police, who said: "I have been in the police force for 15 years and have never seen a case as horrific as this." William Lawler, the pathologist who examined Bates' body, described her injuries as "the worst he had seen on a murder victim" Smith, a misogynist with a history of violence and torture against former lovers, denied murdering Bates but was convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment on 19 November 1997
Quote:
On 16 April 1996 Smith presented at a police station and said that he had accidentally killed his girlfriend during an argument in the bath, claiming that she had inhaled bathwater and died despite his attempts to resuscitate her. He also claimed that "she often pretended to be unconscious". Police attended Smith's address and found Bates' naked body in a bedroom. Bates' blood was found in every room of the house, and a post-mortem examination revealed over 150 separate injuries on her body. During the last month of her life she had been kept bound in the house, sometimes tied by her hair to radiators or chairs, and at other times with a ligature around her neck. William Lawler, the Home Office pathologist who examined her body, said: "In my career, I have examined almost 600 victims of homicide but I have never come across injuries so extensive." The injuries included:
  • scalding to her buttocks and left leg;
  • burns on her thigh caused by the application of a hot iron;
  • a fractured arm;
  • multiple stab wounds caused by knives, forks and scissors;
  • stab wounds inside her mouth;
  • crush injuries to both hands;
  • mutilation of her ears, nose, eyebrows, mouth, lips and genitalia;
  • wounds caused by a spade and pruning shears;
  • both eyes gouged out;
  • later stab wounds to the empty eye sockets;

The pathologist determined that her eyes had been removed "not less than five days and not more than three weeks before her death". She had been starved, losing around 20 kg in weight, and had not received water for several days before her death. Peter Openshaw, the prosecutor in Smith's trial, said: "It was as if he deliberately disfigured her, causing her the utmost pain, distress and degradation . The injuries were not the result of one sudden eruption of violence, they must have been caused over a long period [and] were so extensive and so terrible that the defendant must have deliberately and systematically tortured the girl." The cause of death was drowning, immediately prior to which she had been beaten about the head with a shower head. Openshaw said: "Her death must have been a merciful end to her torment"

Re: The Torture and Murder of Kelly Anne Bates

A fellow Rob Dyke fan, I see.

Yeah, once that part was over I immediately had to pause and look up some more information on it. Just, wow. Having your eyes gouged out and kept alive for several more weeks filled with even more torture that you literally can't even see coming? This might well be the worst murder that I've ever heard of. One has to wonder about how she must have begged for mercy throughout, or even begged to be killed quickly. Hard to believe that she must have actually been eating and drinking (forced, most likely) while enduring that kind of agony.

...Even still, my morbid curiosity also led me to wonder if there are any existing pictures of her body, as well. Apparently, the entire jury received counseling afterward.

Yep, I love Rob Dyke's work. I didn't bother to mention him though as most probably don't know him.

Re: The Torture and Murder of Kelly Anne Bates

As this is a British crime, I doubt there will be any CS photo's out there. Stuff like that just isn't made public here.

The guy looks like he learned from the Ian Brady School For Psychopaths.
