Emily's killer jailed for life
 By Staff reporter and agencies

Few here in NZ could nave missed seeing or reading of Emily Longley's murder and the subsequent trial of her murderer.

There is an aspect of this case that troubles me - how the good intentions and actions of parents sometimes have unintended bad consequences in their families.

Both sets of parents in this case seem to have been (in hindsight) doing what they think is "the best" for their troubled children... the Turner parents in covering up for their son and the decision of the Longleys to divert their daughter from having got in with the "wrong crowd" at schools in NZ, apparently by arranging to send her to UK relatives to continue her studies where she obviously continued the unwise choice of associates.

It must be doubly hard to avoid recriminations where parents who have separated have to come together in such circumstances


reminds me of the case years ago where desperate parents had used a form of tough love and delivered their son into the hands of police. He was picked up and being transported in a police van with another occupant who killed him while on the trip to the police station.

and the recent tragedy of the Manakau Harbour dinghy sinking, where the mother said she blamed herself for having just bought the dinghy as a gift for the father.


I hope all those parents will have been able to move on from the realisation of the fact that their good intentions had such bad outcomes.

That was something I was having trouble getting my head around.

What the hell a 17 year old was doing on the other side of the world sleeping over at her boyfriend's, who sounds like the type I would let my daughter near.

I have a 17 year old daughter.

I may be sort of okay about letting her go away to university at the other end of the country when she is 18 but only if she stays in a living situation that I have checked out in person before hand.

Seems Emily had been in trouble with police and in bad company.

This is probably the first reference I found after seeing UK news on Sky TV soon after she was found:

Kiwi teen's mystery UK death
 By Michael Dickison

The news seems to have broken soon after the father began his new job with the Beacon  

New managing editor joins the Beacon
Wednesday, 02 March 2011
see http://www.whakatanebeacon.co.nz/cms/news/2012/04/art100011531.php

not a good start in a new job for him.

Trouble is there is very little that can be done to keep our kids totally safe.

All a parent can do is to let them loose on the sea of life and hope they have a fovourable wind in their sails.

Emily Longley CCTV: 'Mummy's Little Murderer'

10:14 AM Friday Dec 13, 2013

The moment Elliot Turner attacked Emily Longley has been broadcast in the British documentary 'Mummy's Little Murderer'. CCTV footage shows the man who killed Kiwi Emily Longley in a bar a day before he murdered her, showing him smashing her head into a table.



I think the full doco will appear on you tube within the next week.
