Who is Deividas Skebas ?
A Lithuanian ‘fruit picker’ who recently returned to Britain will appear in court this morning charged with the murder of nine-year-old Lilia Valutyte.
The schoolgirl was stabbed to death while she was playing with her sister in a quiet alley in daylight.
After the tragedy, her family was said to be in hiding for fear of being attacked, according to The Sun.
A friend of the family said they are “very, very concerned” adding: “They haven’t been able to stay home.” They’re worried that whoever did this is still out there. They are worried that they might be a target.
“It’s so horrible – they have the impossible task of trying to come to terms with the loss of Lilia. So they still feel they need to protect their other little daughter.
Arrested and Charged
Last night, Deividas Skebas, 22, was charged with the girl’s murder outside her mother’s embroidery shop near the center of Boston, Lincolnshire, around 6:20 p.m. m. last Thursday.
Skebas is due to appear in Lincoln Magistrates Court today.The semi-Victorian where Skebas was arrested is believed to be a multi-occupancy house with several Lithuanian residents.
He was held on Saturday when armed officers surrounded a nearby house just four hours after Lincolnshire Police released CCTV footage of a man seen in the area shortly before the stabbing.
Beata Sapuskaite Ex Girlfriend
Skebas’s ex-girlfriend, Beata Sapuskaite, 23, told The Times that she had left the UK after having health problems.
She also described the Skebas family in Lithuania as “upper class” and “business people”.
Sapuskaite added that Skebas did “field work” but did not work for MS Agricultural Services, the agency run by Lilia’s mother, Lina Savicke, 35.
She was studying in Lithuania and came to England to work. She went back to Lithuania but came back to Boston recently,” Sapuskaite said.
Lilia Valutyte Death
Earlier yesterday, a church service held in memory of Lilia heard how the local community had been ‘scarred’ by her death.
Around 150 people gathered for the moving “service of prayer and reflection” at St. Botolph Church, the landmark known as the Boston Stump 100 yards from the place where little Lilia died.
Some worshipers openly wept as they lit candles to remember the Lithuanian schoolgirl. Associate Chancellor Jane Robertson recounted how the sound of children’s voices echoed through the 14th-century Gothic church during play activities earlier this week.
She said: ‘Who would know that these scenes would be replaced by so much sadness?’
In a touching Facebook tribute, family friend Jurate Matulioniene said Lilia “was a ray of light.” The pain is indescribable. Rest in peace, little angel.
Chief Superintendent Martyn Parker said: ‘This is a heartbreaking case that has affected many people in Boston and beyond.
Our thoughts continue to be with Lilia’s family at this exceptionally difficult time.
“The response to such a devastating incident has involved committing significant resources to the investigation and engaging with people in Boston who are understandably shocked by Lilia’s death.
‘Our officers have been in town, speaking to the public and listening to their concerns. We will continue to maintain a significant presence in the coming days.
‘Finally, I would like to extend my thanks once again to the public and the media, who have provided assistance in a challenging and rapidly evolving case. Our officers and staff appreciate her support.’
