Outside the Court when Vincent Tabak was convicted of strangling Joanna Yeates her parents released this statement:
“We saw no emotion or remorse or regret for what he did to Jo. We felt that all emotions expressed by him were false. All we heard were words of self-pity. Thus, it is with regret that capital punishment is not a possible option for his sentence. The best we can hope for him is that he spends the rest of his life incarcerated, where his life is a living hell, being the recipient of all evils, deprivations and degredations that his situation can provide. For ourselves, this trial has had little effect on our lives. We have still lost a daughter and our son has lost a sister. Our main sorrow is that Jo was not allowed to start her own family, have children and achieve her potential. We will never get over our loss, how she was murdered and the total lack of respect with which her body was treated. We so miss hearing her happy voice and seeing her living life to the full.”
Joanna deserved Justice. Vincent Tabak deserved the death penalty.
