Our daughter Georgia Williams, 17, was murdered in sick plot when killer obsessed with snuff films lured her to his home | The Sun

THE parents of a teen girl murdered by a predator obsessed with snuff films have revealed they still have nightmares ten years on.

Georgia Williams, 17, was lured to the home of pal Jamie Reynolds, 23, who claimed he needed help with a photography problem.

Once there, the monster hanged the teen and filmed her final moments before having sex with her body.

Shockingly, it later emerged Reynolds was already known to the police following a string of chilling incidents with women.

He also owned a sickening stash of "snuff films" – videos of women being badly hurt or murdered – and told medics he was turned on by strangulation.

But West Mercia Police failed to act and Reynolds was left free to murder Georgia.

The teen's mum Lynette has now spoken of her torment ten years on from the brutal killing in Telford, Shropshire, in May 2013.

She told the Mirror: "We still have nightmares. One of us will wake the other up at night screaming. We help each other through them.

"I relive the day as soon as I wake up or when I try to sleep. I feel drained most of the time, it’s on your mind constantly. It never goes away.”

Georgia's dad Steve was a murder detective with West Mercia Police but retired following his daughter's killing.

He said the pain never heals but "you get used living with" it.

The dad added: "Physical pain I can stand, but I’ve never known mental pain like this. It’s torture, years of torture.”

Air cadet Georgia, who dreamed of being in the RAF, knew Reynolds through her older sister Scarlett.

He wanted to be a photographer and had already taken some portraits of girls in Georgia's friendship group.

Reynolds had asked Georgia out a few times before but she always politely declined as she had a boyfriend.

But when he invited her over claiming he needed help with a project, Georgia agreed to go and pose for a few photos.

Unbeknown to Georgia, Reynolds had previously been arrested for trying to strangle a girl.

His own stepdad had also shopped him to police for looking at images of naked women being strangled.

He also told officers Reynolds doctored Facebook pictures of girls he knew to show them being hanged but police didn't act and the girls in the photos were never told.

At around 8pm on May 26, 2013, Georgia made the five minute walk to the monster's home but never came back.

Steve and Lynette had sent her a message asking where she was and raised the alarm the next day when she failed to make it home.

Officers headed straight to Reynold's home and booted the door down but he was nowhere to be seen.

They eventually discovered a digital camera with vile images of Georgia standing on a box with a rope around her neck.

After kicking the box away, Reynolds filmed her final moments as she struggled for breath before having sex with her body.

The fiend then dumped her naked body in woodland to be found two weeks later.

Recalling the moment when Steve’s colleagues told them the heartbreaking news, Lynnette said: “I was yelling, ‘Don’t you say that!’

"I remember Steve running from the room to throw up. I ordered them out of the house, part of me thought if they weren’t there, it wouldn’t be true.”

Reynolds was arrested at a Premier Inn in Glasgow but he claimed he wasn't well and had gone to bed early that night.

Meanwhile, officers searching his home found a list with the names of 32 women he knew – all possible targets – and a series of stories he'd written about killing girls, which he planned to reenact.

One, titled Georgia's Surprise, detailed what he was going to do to the teen once he had lured her to his house.

To add to the nightmare, Georgia's family discovered her death could have been prevented.

Since his early teens, Reynolds had been obsessed with snuff films and possessed a vile library of over 16,000 photos of women being hurt or killed.

One doctor already claimed he was a "significant risk to others" after he was first arrested as a teenager, but nothing was done.

In 2011, he was let off with a traffic warning after he reversed his car into a girl who had spurned his advances.

Georgia's parents battled to expose police mistakes in the case and a 2015 probe finally concluded the force had let Reynolds slip under the radar due to a series of failings.

Three police officers and one civilian worker were ­disciplined but all four kept their jobs.

Steve said: “It was like kids having their wrists slapped by their head teacher.

"Then you watch TV and some child’s been killed because a social worker didn’t do their job, or the Met police don’t deal with one of their own properly and he goes on to kill, and it makes you so angry.”

Lynette has now written a book, Our Georgia, about the horror and is looking forward to becoming a grandmother when daughter Scarlett gives birth in a few weeks.

The mum has described the news as a "burst of sunshine" for the family.

She added: "Georgia would have been a mad auntie, she’d have done all sorts with him.

“I’m hoping our grandson has a little bit of the spirit that his auntie had.”
