groomed by a virgin

Jane Rowe, 31, Mountain Ash Ushering us through the front door, my dad handed me a bag of toys and waved goodbye. It was summer 1993, I was 4 – and this house, this routine, had become familiar. Every day, Dad dropped me and my brother, 3, with a local babysitter, while he went to work. It’d become the norm since my parents split up a few months earlier. At first, we loved our time there. Then someone else began looking after us. ‘This is my brother Mark,’ our usual babysitter said, introducing us. While she went to tend to her horse, she’d leave us with him. Mark was around 17, but to me, he was a grown-up. Always dressed in dark clothes, he had black, greasy hair. When he came close, I’d grimace at the dirty smell from…

Andrea Walker, 31, Tamworth Flicking through a magazine, I folded down the corner of another page. Exactly what I want, I grinned to myself. It was 2017 and I was sifting through wedding mags again. Mesmerised by pictures of beautiful brides in their princess gowns, I was envious. Me and my partner Matthew, then 26, had been together for three years. What started as a joke quickly became reality And I was desperate for him to ask me that question. Hint after hint, yet he still hadn’t proposed. I was getting impatient. Told myself if I didn’t get engaged by 30, I didn’t want to get married at all. I was 29, and time was ticking. But truth was, I understood why Matthew hadn’t asked. ‘£30,000!’ I’d gasped when we’d speculated about the figures for our dream wedding. Still, maybe one day..? So,…

the wedding that never was

A month before her wedding, Justine Ruszczyk, 40, was in the prime of her life. Blonde and beautiful, she was thriving in her career as a life coach and yoga teacher. She was also a spiritual healer, dedicated to helping others. In April 2014, Justine had moved from Sydney to Minneapolis to be with her beloved fiance Don Damond. It didn’t take her long to settle in. An animal lover, Justine volunteered at a local dog shelter. And she became a loving stepmum to Don’s son Zach, 19. In July 2017, Justine and Don were just four weeks away from getting married in Hawaii. They’d planned a beach ceremony, Justine had picked out a beautiful gown. But on 15 July 2017, tragedy struck… Justine’s final moments At 11.37pm, Justine was at home when she heard a woman screaming in…
