Sally Anne Bowman Murder Trial Continues

// 5 February 2008

The man suspected of killing teenage model Sally Anne Bowman had admitted to having sex with Bowman’s dead body but denies murdering her. Mark Dixie claims he was inebriated after birthday celebrations where he was angry because his girlfriend hadn’t attended. He stayed over at a friends flat two streets away where he returned afterwards.

This is wrong on so many levels – even assuming he isn’t guilty of murder, what does it say about a man’s beliefs about women that it’s OK to have sex with their bleeding corpse on the driveway of a house? And then to return to your female friends flat as if nothing had happened?

And why did a neighbour who heard Bowman screaming at 4.20am do nothing?

The mind truly boggles.
