Two years ago on this day (17 December 2010), Joanna Yeates was murdered in Bristol, England. Here is the quote from her parents.
QUOTE: “For us, it is with regret that capital punishment is not a possible option. The best we can hope for him is that he spends the rest of his life incarcerated where his life is a living hell, being the recipient of all the evils, deprivations and degradations that his situation can provide.” [Friday 28 October 2011]
AUTHOR: Parents of Joanna Clare "Jo" Yeates (19 April 1985 - 17 December 2010) was a 25-year-old landscape architect from Hampshire, England, who went missing on 17 December 2010 in Bristol after an evening out with work colleagues. Her body was subsequently discovered on 25 December 2010 in Failand, North Somerset; post-mortem analysis determined that she had died from strangulation. Vincent Tabak was eventually found guilty of her murder. The murder inquiry, named "Operation Braid", became one of the largest police investigations in the Bristol area. The case dominated news coverage in the United Kingdom as Yeates' family reached out through social network services and press conferences for assistance from the public. Rewards totalling £60,000 were offered for information leading to those responsible for Yeates' death. The police initally suspected Yeates' landlord, who lives in the same building, and arrested him, but soon released him on bail. Vincent Tabak, a 32-year-old Dutch engineer and neighbour of Yeates, was arrested on 20 January 2011. Media attention at the time centred on the filming of a re-enactment of her disappearance for the BBC's crime programme, Crimewatch. After two days of questioning, he was charged on 22 January 2011 with Yeates' murder. On 5 May 2011, Tabak, now aged 33, pleaded guilty to Yeates's manslaughter, but denied murdering her. On 20 September he appeared at Bristol Crown Court for a pre-trial hearing, attending in person having previously appeared from prison via videolink. His trial started on 4 October 2011. Tabak was found guilty of murder on 28 October 2011 at Bristol Crown Court, and subsequently sentenced to serve a minimum of 20 years in prison.
