Brianna Ghey's heartbreaking final journey captured on CCTV before girl lured to death by teens who stabbed her 28 times | The Sun

BRIANNA Ghey's tragic final hours were captured in haunting CCTV as she left home for the last time to meet her killers.

The 16-year-old was lured to Linear Park in Warrington, Cheshire, by girl X and boy Y, who then stabbed her 28 times.

During a trial, footage was released that tracked Brianna's movements on February 11.

She could be seen leaving her home in Birchwood at around 12.45pm wearing a white hoodie, black skirt and knee-high white socks.

Brianna then makes her way down the path and shuts the gate behind her for the final time.

The schoolgirl boarded a bus from nearby Birchwood Station to Culcheth Library.

In a statement read in court, bus driver Kieran Mercer said: "From the moment I saw her I just felt there was something odd about her.

"I felt as if she was going out of her way not to be seen."

He also described Brianna as being "timid" and "quietly spoken".

Mr Mercer added: "She just gave the impression she was someone who just wanted to be left alone."

While on the bus, Brianna messaged her mum Esther Grey to tell her she was on her way to meet X and was "scared".

Esther said that her daughter would often stay in at weekends due to her anxiety.

In response to her venturing out, she had replied: "That's well good".

Brianna met her killers at the bus stop before the trio were captured on CCTV entering an alleyway to the park 2.02pm.

Just over an hour later, Brianna was found covered in blood and lying face down in mud by a dog walker.

Brianna suffered "unsurvivable" injuries, including catastrophic blood loss after she was knifed in the back and chest.

X and Y had penetrated Brianna's throat and lungs with the blade.

One stab wound reached a depth of 11cm and sliced through the teen's heart.

Brianna also had "defensive" wounds to her arms and hands where she desperately attempted to fight her attackers off.

The court was told "many" of the stab wounds damaged Brianna's bones and would have required "considerable force".

Prosecutor Deanna Heer KC said there was "no doubt she was the victim of a sustained and violent assault".

X and Y were yesterday unanimously convicted of murder in just over four hours.

The evil pair, who were aged 15 at the time, had exchanged chilling text messages leading up to Brianna's death.

They sent each other "snuff" videos downloaded from the dark web as they became "preoccupied with violence, torture and death".

This culminated in a "kill list" of five people they wanted to murder before eventually settling on tragic Brianna.

In a note titled "Saturday 11th February 2023. Victim: Brianna Ghey”, X outlined her grisly plans.

She wrote: "Meet Y at wooden posts 1pm. Walk down to library…bus stop. Wait until Brianna gets off bus then the 3 of us walk to linear park. Go to the pipe/tunnel area.
