Protesters to attend the reclaiming of the streets vigil following the kidnapping and murder of Bobbi-Anne McLeod

Protesters attend a ‘reclaim the streets’ vigil in Plymouth, where women share their fear of going out at night after the kidnapping and murder of Bobbi-Anne McLeod.

Police said today there is “no known link” between a 24-year-old murder suspect and the teen as they continued to search a house four miles from where she disappeared.

He remains in custody for further questioning, while another man, 26, has been released without further action after he was also arrested on suspicion of murder.

Bobbie-Anne, 18, was snatched away last weekend while waiting for a bus to meet her boyfriend before her devastated family was told her body had been found Tuesday night.

A family vigil is being held tonight as the teen’s mother and siblings are expected to walk from their candlelit home to the bus stop where she went missing.

And tomorrow night, a large number of women are expected to attend a more public vigil at Plymouth Hoe as part of the reclamation of the street movement launched after the murder of Sarah Everard.

Women all over town said they are now afraid of going anywhere alone, especially at night.

Kathleen Frost, 81, who lives just next to an area where evidence was being sought yesterday, said she felt less safe today as a result of the murder.

She said, ‘I don’t normally keep my doors locked, but they were last night.

“I’ve only been here three years so I’m not really settled in yet, but it seemed like a nice community and it’s definitely a shock.

“I didn’t hear anything that night, but the day it happened I had to walk my dog ​​in the dark. I was a little tense that day anyway, so now that I heard what happened to Bobbi, I don’t do that anymore.

“I didn’t sleep last night just thinking about what that girl must have been through.”

A local woman, Anne, said ‘it’s just devastating’ and supports the planned ‘reclaim the streets’ protest.

She said, ‘I have my kids at home who are sick, but if I didn’t I would probably be protesting right now. So I fully support the protest.

“This should never happen, we should eventually be able to walk down the street and feel safe.

‘I think there should be more security, there should be camera surveillance at bus stops. If it was there, at least we could have seen what happened and there could have been a warning.”

The killinhas also sparked renewed calls for more action in the community and by those in authority to tackle male violence.

Labor council candidate Charlotte Holloway said there was “new anger” after Bobbi-Anne’s disappearance.

She added: ‘Plymouth women can add taking a bus to the list of other things we can’t do without fear.

‘We’re afraid of booze and needle sticks, we can’t jog through parks at night. We can’t live our lives the way men do.’

Cllr Sally Haydon, the Plymouth Labor Police and Crime Spokesperson, added: ‘A young woman with her whole future ahead of her should have been able to wait at a bus stop without losing her life.

“Women in Plymouth should be able to go out anywhere in our city without having to constantly worry about their safety and this terrible news is another reminder that this is not the case.

“There is an urgent need to take action, both nationally and locally, to address the issues, which means we are seeing these horrific events happening across the country at an alarming level.

“I ask for an urgent meeting with the police, partners and senior officials of the council, we must all work together to make women feel safe and end violence against women and girls.”

Cornwall’s Reclaim The Night, an annual event of The Women’s Center Cornwall, said it will honor Bobbi-Anne at the next event.

The group wrote on Facebook: ‘Another woman’s life taken in a senseless, despicable act of male violence. We’ll be honoring her next week at Reclaim The Night, but we shouldn’t. Bobbi-Anne should still be here. Our thoughts are with her loved ones.”

The Smeaton’s Tower vigil will be held tomorrow from 6pm.
