A 13-year-old schoolgirl who was part of the plot to murder teenager Olly Stephens has sent a sickening voicemail saying how ‘excited’ she was to lure the Reading boy to his death.

She said in a message: “By the way, I’m installing Olly tomorrow.”

She added: “[One of the boys] just wants me to settle down so he’s gonna go punch it and mold it and fuck it.”

DCI Andy Howard says 90% of evidence in Olly’s murder trial came from cellphones

The girl had been recruited by two boys who stabbed Olly to death in a field behind his house following a disagreement on social media. His killers used Snapchat to stage the attack.

The girl said in a message: “By the way, I’m installing Olly tomorrow.”

She bragged: “[One of the boys] just wants me to settle down so he’s gonna go punch it and mold it and fuck it.

One of the killers used the platform to threaten Olly before the attack: “You have poison in your fam heart,” he wrote. “Oly you’re going to die tomorrow.”

It was the sheer volume of social media posts that allowed police to track Olly’s killers.

“We were really surprised by the amount of digital evidence,” Chief Inspector Andy Howard told the TSWT.

There were images shared on Instagram of people wielding knives, with hoods and balaclavas.

“There’s definitely a very unhealthy attraction to filming, recording, really pretty bad acts of violence,” DCI Howard said.

Olly had been diagnosed with autism shortly before his murder.

His father Stuart said: ‘Olly trusted people too much, it was part of his makeup, it was part of his autism – that was why we loved him.

“He knew no sense of danger, he defended himself in a confrontation and couldn’t back down, but he was kind and loving.”

The girl who lured Olly to the ambush, now 14, pleaded manslaughter and perverting the course of justice and was sentenced to five years in a juvenile facility.

The girl and the defendants cannot be named for legal reasons.

Chief Detective Inspector Howard, who led the Thames Valley Police investigation, described it as “one of the most shocking” of his career.
