The father of two young girls murdered by their sex worker mother claimed he warned social services about the “evil” killer who was jailed for life yesterday.
Louise Porton will serve a minimum 32-year prison sentence for murdering her two daughters because they “got in the way” of her sex life.
The 23-year-old suffocated three-year-old Lexi Draper and strangled 16-month-old Scarlett Vaughan in Rugby, Warwickshire in January and February last year.
In a victim statement, read out at Birmingham Crown Court by the prosecution, Chris Draper, the children’s father suggested he contacted social services about Porton before his daughters were killed.
“Maybe if social services had listened to me, my girls would still be alive today,” he said. Birmingham Children’s Trust did not respond to a request for comment.
Mr Draper said he was “broken” and no punishment would ever be enough.
“I sit and think, day and night, and I can’t understand why my two little girls were taken away because Louise wanted to sleep around.”
Mr Draper, who was in court for sentencing, said: “I hate Louise.”
In an other report it’s said that he never actually met the younger of the two children. Leading to the interesting question, well, where were you matey?
