PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! The tragic last moments of a lone woman were caught on CCTV after she was chillingly stalked through the streets before her murder. Footage captured Lorraine Cox, 32, as she was befriended by a stranger and enticed back to his flat above a kebab shop. Killer Azam Mangori previously of Dartmouth Street, Burslem, in Stoke-on-Trent, later dismembered her body in a horrific murder and hid the remains in bins near his home and in woodland. The 24-year-old was convicted of Ms Cox's murder and yesterday, April 7, was jailed for life with a minimum of 20 years behind bars following a trial at Exeter Crown Court. Mangori had discovered his intoxicated victim by chance as she walked home from a night out in Exeter city centre at about 2am on September 1, last year.

He gets closer and closer before she crosses a road and he continues to follow. Mangori then engages her in conversation as she walks away with him still tracking her. They then head together in the direction of Sidwell Street. DevonLive report that CCTV showed Mangori following her up High Street before the pair had a sexual encounter in an alleyway.

Earlier in the hearing the victim's partner Elsie Farrow gave a victim impact statement and revealed they were planning to have a child together - with Ms Cox carrying the baby. "The murder of Lorraine is something I will never recover from," she said. "The thought of her as a missing person for seven days only prolonged the agony. While we thought she was missing but still alive we had hope. On September 9 all hope was lost.
"I have had to see images I can never erase and hear audio that will always be in my mind. Everything has changed for our small family. "Every day I think about things that will never happen again. We will never be able to hold hands and go exploring in our local country park. "We planned to have children together with Lorraine carrying our child. I will never see her smile or hear her infectious laugh."
