Has Grays’ killer Lewis Daynes contacted his victim’s mother?

THE mother of a 14-year-old boy murdered in Grays by a man he met while gaming online says she has "no doubt" a person who has contacted her online is her son’s killer.

Breck Bednar was killed in 2014 after being lured to Grays by Lewis Daynes, 20, who is serving a life sentence.

Breck’s mother Lorin LaFave has told BBC Surrey: "It’s very distressing and I know it’s him."

The Ministry of Justice said it had found no evidence of electronic communication in Daynes’s cell.

Essex Police said it was investigating the two online postings.

A force spokesman said: "The police have been made aware of a second letter purporting to be from Lewis Daynes that has been posted on the internet.

"The police service is considering if any offences have been committed by the publication.

The full interview with Lorin LaFave can be found here.

A documentary on the death of Breck Bednar was first aired on BBC3 on Tuesday evening and can be found in the BBC I-Player.
