Becky Watts The couple accused of murdering Becky Watts exchanged messages about kidnapping schoolgirls and sex with teenagers, their trial has heard.
Matthews, 28, and Hoare, 21, exchanged Facebook and text messages about schoolgirls and kidnap in the months leading up to Watts’ death, Bristol Crown Court heard.
Crime intelligence analyst Shaun Groves told the court he had been able to attribute certain messages to either Hoare or Matthews, but others were unclear.
In a message sent on 5 December at 12.58pm, one wrote: “F*** you bring me bak two pretty schoolgirls then :)…”
A reply at 12.59pm said: “lol yeh I’ll just kidnap them from school…”
Later that day, at 6.14pm, one wrote: “Just went into Costcutter and saw a pretty petite girl. Almost knocked her out to bring home lol xoxo”
A reply 20 seconds later said: “Don’t you ‘almost’ me… Now DO IT b****!! xxxxx”
One message then said: “lmfao yeah I’ll just go back in time to when I saw her then time travel her to our attic lol xoxo”
On 20 November, during an exchange between 9.48pm and 9.58pm, one wrote: “lol but where’s my lil sweat 16… ish. lmfao.”
Matthews then allegedly wrote: “Blonde school girls I be tapping?! hmmmm lol xxx”
The court heard Hoare replied: “F*** me what version of Up did you watch lol xoxo”
Matthews is said to have written back: “The one with the school girls doing porn 🙂 I might have let my mind get away from me just a lil bit lol xxxx.”
And Hoare allegedly replied: “So you watched some porn where a blonde 16-year-old is having sex with a really, really grumpy old man in a floating house and there’s a talking dog?”
Becky went missing on 19 February and her remains were found in a shed in Barton Hill, Bristol, on 2 March.
Matthews denies murder and conspiracy to kidnap – but has admitted killing Becky, perverting the course of justice, possessing a prohibited weapon and preventing the burial of a corpse.
Hoare denies all of these charges. The trial continues.
