(LEAMINGTON SPA, U.K.) Crown Court Report: Three unnamed childen have been found guilty of the savage murder of a 15-year-old boy who they ganged up on to stab almost 20 times in a Coventry park on Feb.05: this year #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Dec.14: Babacar Diagne was attacked on grassland off Petitor Crescent, Wood End, on the evening of 5 February: None of the three attackers – two of whom were aged just 15 and the other 17 – had seen Babacar before: They’d not even spoken to him: He was simply an unfamiliar face in their community. It was a senseless attack that took a life and changed theirs forever: At Leamington Crown Court today (14 Dec) the teenagers were all found guilty of murder and face the prospect of being jailed for life: As they are all children – two now aged 16 – we cannot legally name them. However, the judge is considering an application to lift restrictions that will allow us to identify the killers:

Three children face life in prison for “savage” knife murder of a boy of 15yrs-of-age in February

14th December 2020:

Our lead investigator, Detective Chief Inspector Scott Griffiths, said: “There remains no clear motive for the savage killing other than Babacar was in the wrong place at the wrong time:

“ He was new to Coventry, finding his feet. He wanted to make friends and to fit in. He was in a part of the city where his face wasn’t known and a stray glance has quickly escalated to murder: “ It’s totally shocking. These three children murdered a stranger; there was no bad blood between them: “ When the three offenders ran at Babacar there were no words exchanged. Babacar pleaded for them to stop but they continued to attack him as he lay defenceless on the floor: “ My officers have worked tirelessly on the case; it was a significant CCTV challenge to plot the movements of the killers. And I would like to praise the courage of witnesses who came forward to support the enquiry…………….“ They can be rightly proud that they have helped us secure justice for Babacar’s family.”

Babacar met up with friends at 6.15pm in Riley Square but quickly became concerned by one of 15-year-olds who was staring at the group and circling around on a bike: He collected two friends from an address before all three cycled out to find Babacar……….Witnesses described a barbaric attack. They initially thought Babacar was being punched until seeing the 15-year-old ringleader holding a bloodied knife. He threatened others with the knife before all three rode away leaving Babacar fatally injured: He was found with 18 stab wounds, mostly to his torso and chest. He died in the park: Our detectives spent hundreds of hours trawling through CCTV to plot the movement of the offenders before and after the murder: It was dark and some of the footage was grainy. But they analysed video in great detail, even noting the number and position of bike reflectors, to show it was the same group across each of the clips: And they seized CCTV footage showing the ringleader 24 hours before the murder riding a bike identical to the one used on the day of the attack……….We found the 17-year-old went to his girlfriend’s home to change clothes following the stabbing and when arrested was found with injuries to his hands……………The other 15-year-old sent a WhatsApp message to his father pleading for help to flee the country. It read: “I need to go to Africa…ASAP…like tomorrow if I can.”

We arrested all three in the days after Babacar’s death and charged them with murder.

Detectives also arrested a girl over the killing: We suspect she made comments to the 15-year-old that stirred up trouble and may have contributed to the attack – but there was not enough evidence to charge and she was released:

Following the convictions Coventry Police Commander, Chief Superintendent Mike O’Hara, praised everyone who helped our investigation: He said: “I really want to express my gratitude to witnesses who provided crucial evidence in the case. They did the right thing to help us send out a message that this senseless violence has to stop: “ The whole of Coventry was shocked by Babacar’s death. Any violent crime is shocking but when the victim is of school age it’s all the more appalling and saddening: “ It’s important the whole community stands together to address the issue of youth violence. It has to stop; too many young lives are being lost and others ruined.”
