Rebecca Watts, known as Becky, went missing two weeks ago from her home in Bristol, England. The 16-year-old seemingly vanished into thin air and her family has been frantically searching for her ever since.
A few days ago police received a tip that lead to Becky’s body and also indicated to officers that the teenager’s body had been cut up and dissected.
Avon and Somerset police have since arrested Becky’s 28 year old stepbrother Nathan Matthews and his girlfriend, and charged the two with Becky’s murder. Five other people have been arrested by police and charged with assisting the offenders.
Police have not yet uncovered Matthews’s motive for murdering his stepsister.
A pile of flowers at Becky’s home and another at the location where her body was discovered continued to grow as sympathizers from the community offer their condolences to her family.
