Stephen Beadman Biography                 Stephen Beadman Wiki

A man who raped and killed a 15-year-old student died in prison when his father received the “best news ever”.

Evil 34-year-old Stephen Beadman was serving a life sentence at Wakefield Prison for the brutal murder of Kayleigh Haywood.

Kayleigh, of Measham, Leicestershire, was killed after being treated in a row and her body thrown into a hedge in November 2015.

The prison service confirmed today that Beadman has died at HMP Wakefield and that the Prison and Parole Ombudsman has been notified.

A spokesman said: “The prison service cannot confirm the cause of death, which corresponds to the coroner.”

In response to the news, Kayleigh’s father Martin Whitby wrote on Facebook: “The best news ever …

“The fool who killed my daughter is dead. I hope that son of a bitch rot in hell.”

Pornography-obsessed psychopath Beadman was jailed for life in July 2016. He was also found guilty of unlawful detention by Nottingham Crown Court.

Kayleigh was tricked into seeing Beadman’s neighbor Luke Harlow on Friday, November 13, 2015, after bombarding her with online messages.

In 13 days, 2,643 messages were exchanged. Harlow told the teen that she was beautiful, how much she loved her and that she was special.

Kayleigh tried to escape in the early hours of November 15, but Beadman chased her, raped her and then beat her to death.

Calling himself a professional serial killer on Twitter, Harlow, 28, pleaded guilty to sexually treating and s*xually assaulting Kayleigh at his home and was sentenced to 12 years in prison.

In 2016, the Leicestershire Police Department made a film about Kayleigh’s last two weeks of life: The Kayleigh Love Story.
