Grace Millane Wiki
Grace Millane went missing in Auckland last year and was later found dead, her body crammed inside a suitcase buried in scrubland outside the city. British backpacker Grace Millane was strangled to death during a Tinder date, prosecutors have alleged, as the case against the man accused of killing her began in New Zealand. On Wednesday, the jury of seven men and five women was asked to decide whether Millane was murdered by her date after the pair went to his apartment, or whether the man strangled her by accident during consensual sex.

“I don’t believe young people tell their parents everything,” he said. “And nor should they.”
