It is really heartbreaking for parents to bury their children. Normally children are expected to bury their folks and not the other way round.
Sadly, the father of one Roberts Buncis had to face the pain of burying his 12-year-old son due to the wickedness of someone he called a friend.
it was gathered that the deceased was killed by his 15-year-old friend named Marcel Grzeszcz in a frenzied attack after luring him to woodland in Boston, Lincolnshire.
The suspect persuaded Roberts to meet by offering him £50 to sell cannabis just days before his 13th birthday. He then stabbed Robberts more than 70 times in the “brutal and prolonged” assault.
Jurors at Lincoln Crown Court heard Roberts’ wounds were “consistent with an attempt to remove the head”.
After he was arraigned to court for Rober’s murder, Marcel was ordered to serve a minimum term of 17 years.
The suspect who was 14 at the time of the attack in the Fishtoft area on 12 December 2020, was convicted in less than two hours.
During the trial, Marcel blamed Robber for carrying a blade to the scene.
According to him, he acted in self-defence and had “lost control” when Roberts tried to stab him.
However, Prosecutor Mary Loram QC told the court there was no proof Roberts had hard any knife and the assault showed a huge level of pre-reflection and planning.
She added that the injury the deceased had suggested that his death was more than a simple stabbing.
While sentencing him, Mr Justice Baker rejected Grzeszcz’s claim about the knife.
He added that the suspect had not yet shown any true remorse.
Mr Justice Baker added that during the brutal attack, the defendant had made a strong effort to remove his head before dumping his body for people to find.
He also noted that after the killing, Grzeszcz made attempts to conceal the crime.
According to him, Marcel disposed of evidence by burning his clothing and sending messages claiming he never met Roberts on the night he was killed.
Speaking about the death of his son, Roberts’ father Edgars Buncis said;
“This is all wrong. No father should have to bury his son.
“Nothing is a reason for this. I have lost my destination, and my purpose. My life is in a cemetery.”
May his soul rest in Peace. Amen.
