The 16 year old youth who killed British school girl Liberty Rose Templeman was today found guilty of her murder by a 11-1 majority verdict, he was also found guilty of indecent assault.
The boy, who is thought to come from another southern hemisphere country, has been granted name suppression until overseas relatives have been informed of the verdict. He had already been named some time ago on a social networking website and comments were left beneath a video he'd posted on the net.
The verdicts, which came after a lengthy jury deliberation, will provide some relief for Libby's family, who are still left wondering why this kid did what he did. Was it a spur of the moment act or something that arose from a personality disorder that renders him likely to re-offend? we may never know.
