Parents of murdered Gracie Spinks deliver stark warning on police failings
The Guardian says Gracie Spinks was doing what she loved most – feeding her beloved horse one morning before work – when a stalker she had previously reported to the police killed her.
Her death came just a few months after Sarah Everard was murdered by police officer Wayne Couzens in March 2021, triggering a nationwide conversation about violence towards women and confidence in policing.
But a year on from Everard’s death, the parents of Spinks have delivered a stark warning that mistakes are still being made in the cases such as their daughter’s. “After everything that happened last year, the perception of the police with the general public is really low at the moment,” said her father, Richard Spinks.
