A TEENAGER suspected of murdering 20-year-old Keeley Bunker appeared in court this morning.
The 19-year-old was arrested yesterday after the body of 20-year-old Keeley was discovered shortly after 21:00 on Thursday in a park creek in Tamworth, Staffs.
The young barmaid disappeared on the way home from a concert on Wednesday evening. Her death has sent shockwaves through the local community.
Tamworth's unnamed suspect was taken today in an unmarked police car to the North Staffordshire Justice Center, where a judge granted the officers an additional 36 hours to question him about the murder.
He was arrested on Friday on suspicion of murdering the 20-year-old.
Keeley's heartbreaking mother Debbie Watkins launched an appeal on Facebook after she was missing when she returned to see British rapper Aitch in Birmingham.
Friends and other family members went in search of the "beautiful soul" as they roamed the surrounding streets in the district of Leyfields.
But a heartbreaking relative found the barmaid at Wigginton Park, near where she was last seen.
Forensic investigators were soon pictured at the scene before Keeley's body was taken to the hospital and a corpse order was issued.
HAUNTING FINAL TWEET
Music fan Keeley showed her enthusiasm for seeing Manchester rapper Aitch at the O2 Institute in a heartbreaking final tweet.
She wrote, "The only thing keeping me alive is seeing a problem on Wednesday, hopefully he'll see me and we'll marry xxx."
A whining relative said, "It tore the family apart.
"Keeley had just gone out, she was so excited to see Aitch, and no one thought they would never see her again.
"The family had been looking for her all day, and when it got dark, her uncle came to my house and asked if we had any torches to search the park with.
"He looked absolutely broken.
"They all went out to look for her, and it was one of the family who actually found the body.
"It's beyond the heart and I do not think you'll ever get over it."
Her cousin Sian Phillips wrote on Facebook: "Miss, you love each other forever, my cousin."
Her aunt Jodie Majer posted some pictures of herself this morning on Keeley on Facebook and wrote: "My beautiful niece, who is more like my little sister !! I love you so much."
Dozens of friends have commented on the post and expressed their condolences.
Mourning friends put flowers in the park where their bodies were discovered.
An ostrich read: "Keely, send all my love, you will be missed by all Rest well x."
Another said, "Keeley, I'll miss you so much, your smile, smiley face, and beautiful soul through and through.
"They are missed by all who are lucky enough to ever have met you.
"Miss you so much, until we meet again, sleep well."
Pals had filed a call for information after Keeley disappeared Thursday at 4 am on Leyfield's settlement surrounding the park.
Keeley is said to have gone home from the rap performance and was last seen at a bus stop, which was only 500 meters from where her body was found.
Her mother, Ms. Watkins, wrote, "Hello, has anyone seen Keeley Bunker since the wee hours?" Please be very worried.
"She went to a concert but has not been seen since she went home at Leyfields at 5:30 this morning."
Family members ransacked the park and found their bag on Thursday afternoon.
Police and paramedics were called in, but Keeley could not be revived.
The West Midlands Ambulance Service said they had received reports from someone in the water near Edgar Close, Tamworth, and sent two ambulances and a paramedic to the scene, but nothing could be done to save them.
The Staffordshire police said in a statement, "A 19-year-old man was arrested in connection with her death and is in custody.
