The more I read about this case the more it creeps me out. His sister is in the DM today, telling of how he intends to marry the victim when he's released.
His family are also really mean in their statement about his ex-wife (who I don't think should have been named or identified in this at all) using the fact that they were having relationship issues to somehow justify why he did what he did. WTF!?
Is it just me that thinks they're all bonkers?

There are other cases of where students have married their teachers and had long relationships.
However it is such a pyschological mess I don't know where to begin with this. Victims of controlling realtionships don't often relasie anything is wrong (QI waves) and think the way they are treated is acceptable, although now looking back at my relationship I groan at the way I accepted being treated.
I don't think the Ex-wife should ahev been named or involved in any way either.

Actually just adding to this (and looking really mental talking to myself)... I work in a secondary school where the potential for this can happen. Personally (which I've never been able to believe) I have been aware of a couple of students that have had a 'crush' on me. You are in a psoition of power and can seem so wordly and clever and so experienced. You can appear to be so kind and understanding. All of that can appeal to someone whom is going through the most confusing time of their life with hormones sending them feeling crazy. TBH I can see why so many students do fall in love with their teachers. BUT it can't be reciporcated. When you become aware of a student crossing a line, that's when you step back, make others aware of what is happening. You make sure you are never alone with a student anyway as part of sensible behaviour. I've had studenst invite me out for drinks and to go paintballing with them or go to a concert with them - yeah it would have been great fun, as they were lovely young people, but you jsut don't because you are aware of that line.
Someone said to me once they knew I was a teacher or worked with young children and I said why? And she said because you just air hugged someone.

I saw on The Sun's website today ( I know it's not the most reliable website lol) but apparently The young girl has said she wants to marry him and her dad will walk her down the aisle! Very messed up

It's all a sorry mess. I feel for the ex-wife being dragged through it all, her photos plastered all over the papers.
