A COURT heard today how three of the people accused of murdering Jamie Dack attended an all-night rave on the same weekend that the 22-year-old’s body was discovered.
Donna Chalk, Andrew Dwyer-Skeats and Ryan Woodmansey took a train from Southampton to Bournemouth on the evening of Good Friday to attend the party.
CCTV footage played to jurors at Winchester Crown Court showed the trio at Southampton Central station at around 8.30pm and returning at around 5.45am on Easter Saturday.
Firefighters found Jamie Dack’s body in an industrial bin after they were called to tackle a blaze at an industrial area off Empress Road, Southampton in the early hours of Easter Sunday.
As previously reported, jurors have heard how Jamie had been lured to a flat at Bevois Mews in Southampton before allegedly being stabbed to the neck, chest, abdomen, legs and shoulder and beaten by a gang, who had set out to rob him of his laptop and cash card.
Chalk, 21, Woodmansey, 32, Dwyer-Skeats, 26 and another man, Lee Nicholls, 28, all deny murder. The three men have admitted perverting the course of justice by disposing of and setting fire to Jamie’s body. Chalk denies that charge.
