Shea Heeley buying sweets before the brutal murder

KILLER Shea Heeley was caught on camera buying sweets just minutes before murdering 16-year-old Leonne Weeks.

CCTV showed the then 18-year-old murderer going into the Best One shop in Dinnington at 6.18pm on January 15 last year and buying a packet of Skittles. He then leaves the shop at 6.23pm.

Leonne went to the same shop half an hour later and bought a can of cola. 

Both the sweets and the drinks can were found at the murder scene.

Heeley was filmed by another camera at 8.46pm the same night going to a takeaway with friends on Laughton Road.

The killer then walked home alone just after 10pm down an alleyway at the side of a house on Doe Quarry Lane.
