Jesse Kempson is the evil killer who killed Britain’s Grace Milan.
A man from New Zealand lured a Briton back to his apartment before cold-bloodedly strangled her.
Who is the killer of Grace Milan Jesse Kempson?
Jesse Kempson, a 29-year-old New Zealander, strangled Grace to death during sex after they met on a date on Tinder on December 1, 2018.
A jury unanimously found Kempson guilty on November 22, 2019 after a two-week trial.
After graduating from Lincoln University, Grace went on a six-week “lifelong journey” when she was brutally murdered.
She was killed at the CityLife Hotelwhere Kempson lived.
A friend of the family said the monster had met a number of British tourists and enjoyed the “enthusiasm of young women”.
LATEST NEWS ABOUT Grace Milan’s death
It was also revealed for the first time that he raped another British tourist eight months before the murder of Ms. Milan, and was convicted of a number of crimes against his former partner.
Just as he did later with Ms. Milan, Kempson took the rape victim out on a date on Tinder before returning her to his room at a motel in Auckland.
A court in the Auckland High Court found that he was a dreamer who would tell potential sexual partners that he had relationships with celebrities, orphaned and even had cancer.
But revealing phone data revealed that he used Google to browse websites in search of large duffel bags, suitcases and car rentals to get rid of Grace’s body after her death.
He also searched the internet for information about “carnivorous birds“, With the question” are there vultures in New Zealand? “, As well as” the hottest fire “,” big bags next to me “and” Waitakere ridges “.
Police found her body in a shallow grave, in a bush, just meters from a scenic road in the Whitaker Ranges, in West Auckland.
Why was Jesse Kempson not named at first?
Jesse Kempson’s name has been defended because of a Kiwi court shutdown order that could remain in effect until 2021.
Even the reasons why his name was not posted were not specified.
But it turned out that Kempson had faced two other trials for violent sexual crimes against two women after the trial in the case of Ms. Milan’s death.
He has been found guilty of all nine charges in both trials, which he is now appealing.
Kempson also appealed to the Supreme Court to re-appeal his conviction for murder.
His name has been withheld by the courts throughout the case to protect his right to a fair trial.
But Kempson’s name was renamed on December 22, 2020, after an order banning his identification was revoked as he lost an appeal to conviction and conviction for murder.
In the UK, defendants receive anonymity only in a number of court cases, including when they are under 18 years old.
The order was originally issued after the UK media was criticized in New Zealand, a few days after he was arrested in December 2018.
Google also violated the order when it named the person in its mass mailing list “What’s Relevant in New Zealand”.
The Kiwi Act gives suspects and alleged victims the right to ask the court to close their name, making it illegal to make it public in the country.
The aim is to protect defendants who are presumed innocent until proven guilty and the confidentiality of the alleged victims, and to ensure a fairer trial.
New Zealand law says that the court must make sure that publishing the person’s identity will cause difficulties for the accused, create a risk of harm to the court or endanger the safety of anyone – including anyone involved with the defendant.
Closing the title is also allowed in cases where the publication may result in the identification of someone else whose name is obscured.
New Zealand Justice Minister Andrew Little insists that the Commonwealth countries use judicial suppression outside New Zealand.
He told the Herald that the Commonwealth countries are working on it, but “it will take a couple of years” to make them international.
What sentence was passed on him for the murder of Grace?
At the Auckland High Court on February 21, 2020, Judge Simon Moore handed over Grace’s killer is life imprisonment with a minimum of 17 years behind bars.
During the trial of this man, Crown lawyer Brian Dickie told the jury that he strangled her for five to ten minutes during or after sex and then “eroticized” her death by taking intimate photos of her body.
“At some point … she lost consciousness and would become lethargic and lifeless, and he would go on. This is a reckless intention. “
August 6, 2020 killer Grace appealed his life sentence, claiming that photographing her dead body and watching porn after killing tourists did not make him a monster.
His new lawyer Rachel Reed claimed he did not receive a fair trial and his sentence was too harsh.
Reed also questioned the testimony of forensic expert Dr. Simon Stables and Dr. Fintan Garavan about suffocation and the cause of death.
But Crown Attorney Brian Wild told Reed that 90 seconds is a long time to put pressure on someone’s neck.
Wild claimed: “She must have resisted … and fought for her life.
“You can’t just knock someone on the neck and they’ll die.”
Reed said she would not try to justify the fact that the killer took intimate photos of Grace’s body after her death.
She said, “I can’t [excuse his actions] for they are unforgivable and abominable. “
Reed claimed that the bruises on Grace’s body were not “significant”.
She also criticized Supreme Court Justice Simon Moore for paying too much attention to the killer’s callousness during the trial, Stuff reports.
Her client’s actions after Grace’s death did not mean he was callous at the time of her death, Reed added.
Wild disputed her comment, saying consent was not a defense against murder.
He asked: “What was the factual evidence to support the view that it was an accidental death in a sexual confrontation by consent?
“Nowhere [one of the defendant’s police interviews] whether he connects what he did with her death.
“We have the weakest basis for consent.”
Grief-stricken mother Grace, Gilliantold her killer that she was suffering because of “the horror and pain she must have experienced from your hands.”
Gillian also told the killer that her daughter died “in horror and alone in the room with you.”
Speaking on video to the Auckland High Court, she added: “As a mother, I would do anything to swap places with her.
“I’m sitting full of guilt knowing I can’t help her that I had to be there.
“Your barbaric actions towards my mercy are beyond comprehension.”
On December 18, 2020, Judge Stephen Kos, Judge Patricia Courtney and Judge Mark Cooper dismissed Kempson’s appeal of his conviction and sentence.
