Hopefully this admission brings some closure to this horrific situation.
On Friday, the boyfriend of the late Sian Blake admitted to murdering her and her two sons. Arthur Simpson-Kent was originally booked for the horrific crime last February after attempting escape to Ghana a month prior.
For those who don’t know, Sian and her two kids were first reported missing in December of 2015. Just a few days later, their bodies were found in shallow graves at Blake’s home. Mr. Simpson-Kent immediately became a suspect since he wasn’t at the crime scene and he had seemingly fled the country.
Arthur’s lawyer said of his client’s guilty admission:
“He admits the killings.”
Well, hopefully we’ll learn the motive behind these terrible acts. It’s truly incomprehensible at the moment.
Despite Arthur’s admission of guilt, he didn’t take a plea. The murderer’s trial will commence October 4 of this year.
We send our well wishes to Sian’s loved ones during this difficult time.
