London: A UK shop worker lured a police detective's teenage daughter to his home and took pictures of himself strangling her to death, it has been revealed after he admitted her murder.
Former head girl Georgia Williams, 17, was strangled by Jamie Reynolds, 23, after she spurned his advances.
It emerged earlier that he took a sequence of pictures showing events "before, during and after" the murder, before driving her body to North Wales, where he dumped it in woodland and went into hiding.
Murdered British teenager Georgia Williams.
Police piecing together Ms Williams’ last moments found the distressing images, as well as extreme pornographic images that Reynolds had pasted over with images of his friends' faces.
They also discovered sexual stories that he had written about Ms Williams, Stafford Crown Court heard.
Reynolds, who initially denied the murder, changed his plea on the first day of his trial.
The court heard Reynolds had lured Ms Williams to his home in Wellington, Telford, Shropshire, on May 26 this year, offering to take photographs of her for a modelling portfolio.
But when she arrived he strangled her to death.
Prosecutor David Crigman QC told the court there were photographs that only the judge would see moments before and after Ms Williams’ death.
He said: "There is photographic evidence relevant to the act moments before and after the murder took place.
"There are also photos of innocent girls who put their pictures on social networking websites that have been corrupted by the defendant.
"There are also certain story lines the defendant has written that we have found."
It emerged that Reynolds, who worked as a petrol station attendant, had a fascination with extreme pornography and would superimpose the faces of female Facebook friends onto the bodies of naked women.
Police seized between 30 and 50 images but it was unclear whether they included Ms Williams.
Reynolds also wrote down sexual fantasies about Ms Williams, which were discovered in a notepad in his bedroom.
Warning him he faced life in prison, Mr Justice Wilkie expressed relief on behalf of the family that they had not been forced to endure a trial.
He said: "Some details are of such nature for it to be given wider publicity would cause untold distress."
Ms Williams - an army cadet who had dreamed of joining the RAF as a paramedic - was reported missing by her father Stephen, 56, a detective constable with West Mercia Police, and mum Lynette, 51, when she failed to return home from a photo shoot at Reynolds' house, less than a kilometre from her family home. It is thought that she died between 8pm and 9pm that night.
After killing her, Reynolds drove 80 kilometres to remote woodland near Wrexham, where he dumped her body before fleeing to Scotland.
A UK-wide manhunt was launched and he was arrested in Glasgow outside a Premier Inn hotel on May 28,before her body had been found.
Reynolds previously made advances on Facebook towards Ms Williams, but she made clear she did not want a relationship with him.
He even claimed on social networking site Ask.fm that he had kissed her and asked her out to a Valentine's Day party.
But on May 8, just weeks after she updated her status to say she was in a relationship with Matthew Bird, Reynolds wrote on the site: "Whenever I arrange dates they either never happen or the girl magically gains a boyfriend.
"And it's worse when you actually like someone, your stuck, happy their (sic) happy but unhappy cos it's not you."
Reynolds also moaned about being "cursed" when it came to women and wrote that he would be "forever alone".
He said: "Plus I'm still kinda recovering my confidence even now from the girl I fell hopelessly in love with, and fighting didn't save that!"
At the time of the murder, Ms Williams' friend Katy Lafferty, 17, revealed: "Georgia said Jamie did fancy her, but she made it obvious she wasn't interested.
"She just told him that their relationship was nothing more than a friendship. Apparently he tried to kiss her once, but she rejected him. I think it was a while ago though."
Georgia was Head Girl at Ercall Wood Technology College, a member of the student council at New College, a corporal with the 1Air Training Corps and a volunteer member of the Telford United soccer club's match day safety team.
Her parents and older sister Scarlett, 22, stared intensely at Reynolds who wore a dark suit, a striped shirt and a purple tie, during the 20 minute hearing.
The Georgia Williams Trust was set up in the weeks after her murder to provide a lasting long-term legacy for her local community.
Set up at the request of the teenager's family, the trust celebrates her life and achievements by enabling young people to access adventure, outdoor activities and volunteering.
Reynolds will be sentenced on December 19.
