Tamworth: Teen Charged with Murder of Girl


A teen, Wesley Streete, has been charged with murdering 20-year-old Keeley Bunker who was found dead in a stream after attending a concert.


Mr. Streete, 19, from Tamworth is due to appear before magistrates in Staffordshire in the morning.

Police had been granted extra time to question him following the discovery of Ms Bunker's body in Tamworth on Thursday.

Ms Bunker had been to see Manchester rapper Aitch at the O2 in Birmingham on Wednesday night.

Her last tweet reads: 'Only thing keeping me going is seeing Aitch on Wednesday, hopefully he'll see me and we'll get married xxx.'

But her body was recovered from a stream in Wigginton Park, Tamworth on Thursday. 

Forensic experts began searching the area for evidence shortly afterwards. 

Ms Bunker's body was removed from the scene to hospital where a post mortem was ordered.

Floral tributes were laid at the scene on Friday afternoon as friends addressed heartfelt messages to the young woman, with one giving her the nickname 'Bunker Face'.

One message left at the scene read: 'Keeley, sending you all my love, you will be missed by all. Rest well xox.'

Another said: 'Keeley, I am going to miss you so so so much. Your laugh, smiley face and through and through beautiful soul!

'You are going to be missed by everyone lucky enough to have ever met you! Miss you already so much, until we meet again, sleep tight.'

The group who laid the flowers hugged and placed their flowers by a tree before leaving the scene shortly after.

The entrance to the park was cordoned off to the public and officers stood guard at the scene as forensic officers continued work in three areas.
