Murder in the ‘House of Horrors’

Couple arrested for committing murder in their ‘House of Horrors’

Nathan Maynard-Ellis, 25 and his boyfriend, David Leesley, 30, were convicted for bludgeoning to death Julia Rawson, 42, in May 2019, before dismembering her body and burning the pieces in two separate locations. When police raided their flat in Tipton, near Dudley, they found a ‘house of horrors’ filled with gory novels, dolls heads, Chucky toys and newspaper clippings about gruesome murders.

Maynard-Ellis met Ms Rawson in a bar, the Bottle And Cork in Dudley, on May 11 last year. CCTV shows the pair leaving the bar at 2am before getting into a taxi to Maynard-Ellis’s flat. The court heard that Ms Rawson probably didn’t know that Maynard-Ellis was gay, or that his partner was waiting at home. When she entered the flat, Ms Rawson was bludgeoned to death with a rolling pin, before the pair dismembered her body into twelve pieces and stuffed it into plastic bin bags. They also brunt her blood-stained clothes in a desperate bid to cover their crimes.
