    NZ man found guilty of murdering British backpacker, during rough sex

    A 27-year-old man has been found guilty of the murder of Grace Millane, a British backpacker who disappeared a year ago in Auckland after going on a date.

    Millane, 21, arrived in New Zealand in November 2018 as part of a round-the-world trip. She met the accused on 1 December for a Tinder date at the Sky City casino and later died in his room at the CityLife hotel after being strangled to death.

    Her body was then contorted into a suitcase and buried in a shallow grave in the Waitakere ranges, a bushland area west of the city.[at]

    The prosecution argued that the defendant used “reckless violence” while strangling Millane during consensual sex, and disregarded the risk to her life when choking her so hard and for so long that she died.

    The defence counsel argued that Millane, from Essex, died accidentally in a “tragic” event that resulted from a toxic combination of alcohol, inexperience with BDSM practices and sexual passion going too far.

    I guess this kind of behavior is considered normal now.

    How dare i even say it right ? How dare i say it's questionable for 21 yo's to be flying around by themselves, having rough sex with strangers.

    He just doesn't get it.

    Read this slowly.

    Nobody is saying that this lass didn't make some very unwise decisions.

    Partly because it's so bloody obvious she did, also because she and her familly have suffered more than enough for them.

    Your victim blaming stinks.

    Since "Rough Sex" was part of the defence and the jury obviously didn't believe it, the title should be simply:

    "NZ man found guilty of murdering British backpacker".

    There is, however, nothing wrong with questioning her decision making. Perhaps she thought that only an imbecile would not realise that Tinder data would point the police straight at an offender, and didn't realise that she was going on the lash with a homicidal imbecile.

    I do wonder why the accused was (and still is) allowed complete anonymity during these proceedings, and whether that will continue throughout the predictable appeals?

    Well Harry we did have a spate of high profile and innocent people accused by Carl Beech and their names were all out in the public domain. Many were old men and some were sent to their grave with tarnished reputations after a lifetime of service to the country. Oh and Sybs Labour friend erm what's his name, e was front and centre goading on the police to arrest the accused and release their names.

    "We" might have, but this trial was in New Zealand.

    Oh OK, didn't realise you were zooming in geographically i thought you were making a general comment about disclosure - hence my response about its impact.

    Ah.

    His name cannot be revealed because of a court order designed to ensure fair trials for the accused in high-profile cases. The guidelines, under the Criminal Procedure Act 2011, limit naming a suspect on a number of grounds.

    No, it probably just feels like it to them.
