A MOTHER is refusing to let her murdered daughter be forgotten as she calls for domestic abusers to be registered and monitored in the same way as sex offenders.

Samantha Shrewsbury is hoping renewed interest in the case of Jayden Parkinson, who was strangled by her boyfriend in 2013, will help save the lives of women in similar situations.

The story will feature on a new TV documentary later this month, with police and family members sharing their memories of the tragic events of that December.

Ms Shrewsbury said: "I won't stop talking about until we are able to stop it happening again.

"I do not want another family to be in the same situation we are in.

"Everyone keeps saying that they will learn from their mistakes but I've seen little evidence that they have.

"If doing things like this can help save one girl's life then it is worth it."

When Missing Turns to Murder will air on the Crime + Investigation channel on April 22 at 9pm.

It will tell the story of then 17-year-old Jayden, who was killed by her boyfriend Ben Blakeley after she told him about her pregnancy.

The 22-year-old strangled Jayden in open countryside south of Didcot, before burying her body in the grave of his uncle, Alan Kennedy, in a cemetery near All Saint’s Church.

Desperate friends and family searched for Jayden for 11 days before the grave site was found after the Serious Crime Squad questioned Blakeley’s brother.

Blakeley, who had a history of violence towards previous partners, was convicted of murder and sentenced to twenty years in prison in 2014.

In the programme, investigating officer Chris Ward outlines the level of control Blakeley held over Jayden before he killed her.

He said: "What became clear is that he was very controlling of Jayden and he had given her instructions not to leave her room, she wasn't allowed to speak to any men.

"She wasn't allowed to have any access to her phone. In fact, he had stolen her telephone and he had control of her social media accounts.

"The level of control was so serious that he had actually instructed her that if she wanted to go to the toilet, she had to stay in the room and that resulted in her urinating into containers she had in the room."

Ms Shrewsbury has consistently called for domestic abusers to be forced to sign a national register and be subject to monitoring in a similar way to sex offenders.

A Domestic Violence Disclosure Scheme - known as Clare's Law - already gives any member of the public the right to ask the police if their partner may pose a risk to them.

But campaigners want the law to give greater protection to victims and were supported by a cross-party parliamentary report released in October which called for the register to be introduced 'as a matter of urgency.'

Ms Shrewsbury, who says she has consistently been abused by online trolls after speaking out about her daughter’s murder, is bracing herself for the documentary to bring the case back into the limelight but said the issues leading to Jayden’s death still haven't been addressed.

She says domestic violence is still an all-too-common occurrence and her campaigning has brought her into contact with 80 families who have had loved ones murdered but that there are “not a lot of services” available to grieving families.

"It is a life sentence for the victim's families,” she said.

"It is horrible to wake up every day without your daughter. It never goes away.”
