Vile trolls upload videos branding murdered Brit backpacker Grace Millane ‘disgusting’ and ‘horrible’ – The Sun

A VILE video that mocks murdered Brit backpacker Grace Millane is being investigated by police.

The sick Instagram posts described the 21-year-old as "horrible human being" and "disgusting" just weeks after her killer was found guilty of murder.

The account has since been deleted, but New Zealand Police have now launched an investigation, The Mirror reported. 

Det Insp Scott Beard, of Auckland City Police, said: “The comments made in the video are offensive and would be extremely ­upsetting to Grace’s friends and family and to the wider community.”

It comes after Grace Millane's killer was found guilty of murder in November.

Grace had arrived in New Zealand in November 2018 as part a round-the-world tour after graduating from Lincoln University.

The Brit backpacker from Wickford, Essex, met her killer on December 1, the eve of Grace's 22nd birthday.

The pair had been on a Tinder date and returned to the 27-year-old man's hotel room following hours of drinking across several bars.

Hours later her contorted body was discovered in a suitcase, buried in woodland near Auckland.

While lawyers for the defence tried to argue Grace had died during "rough" sex, the jury found the man guilty.

However the court heard the defendant had also smothered other dates – even arranging another Tinder date while Grace lay dead in his rented apartment.

He will now be sentenced on February 21 next year.


Grace's family sat through the horrific three week trial, paying tribute to their daughter as the verdict was handed down.

Standing with wife Gill, dad David said: "It will not reduce the pain and suffering we have had to endure over the past year.

“Grace was taken away from us in the most brutal fashion a year ago and our lives and family have been ripped apart. This will be with us for the rest of our lives."

Despite the verdict, the killer's identity can still not be revealed for legal reasons.

He was remanded into custody until his sentencing in February 2020, when he faces life in prison with a minimum of 10 years without parole, though the judge can increase the latter period.
