Teen killer, 15, boasted about laughing as he hacked factory worker to death with samurai sword in sick ‘no remorse’ rap

A TWISTED teen killer wrote sick raps bragging about how he laughed as he stabbed a dad to death over 100 times with a samurai sword.

Luke Gaukroger, 16, and accomplice Kiyran Earnshaw, 18, hacked at defenceless Robert Wilson outside a factory in Huddersfield.

The monster teen then penned vile raps about trying to slice off the 53-year-old’s head as he boasted about the gruesome killing.

One called “No Remorse” included the lyrics “sitting in the dock trying to show remorse but I don’t feel it”.

He then goes on to say he wouldn’t mean a “fake apology just to be at home”.

Another goes into grisly detail about how Robert was “struggling for his last breath” when he gave up after the brutal ten-minute attack.

It continues: “I was still stabbing up the guy’s chest, laughing cos my knife work the best”.

One had the lyrics: “Dip him, leave him drippin’, now my shoes floating in a pool

“Burn my kicks, burn my Calvins after, burn that fool.

“I was chillin with Ky, we was tryna bill it but we had to kill it,

“Big man tried beefin’ so we had to kill it,

“We was wetting my man up for like 10 whole minute”.

Gaukroger and Earnshaw were yesterday jailed for life with a minimum of 16 years and eight months and 22 years respectively.

Both teens, who have previous convictions for violent offences, admitted murder and causing a colleague grievous bodily harm with intent.

Leeds Crown Court heard how Robert had gone to investigate youths outside the factory he worked at when the teens launched the attack.

Chilling audio recorded on Robert’s phone captured the teen shouting: “Get his head, I want to cut his head, Kia I want to cut his head”.

The recording also captured the worker’s pleas as he begged the pair to stop during the “frenzied and senseless” ten-minute attack.

Robert’s heartbroken wife Elaine said his death was “completely incomprehensible”.

She bravely faced the dad-of-two’s killers in court, asking: “How on earth have we come to this and why?”

Elaine told in an emotional statement how she went into a “downward spiral” after learning about her husband’s horrific death.

She said she had last seen Robert when she dropped him off at the train station for work on the fateful night he died.

After he died, she was allowed to hold his hand but was urged not to have an open casket funeral given the severity of his injuries.

And the grieving widow, who suffers from panic attacks, told of her “heartbreak” at seeing her husband’s work bloom in the garden and how he will miss out on their two children getting married and having kids.

Facing the brutes in court today, she said: “I want you to know you have taken the life of a much respected, admired and good man.”

Earnshaw mounted the attack after Robert asked them to leave the premises of the Thornton & Ross factory on January 16.

He pulled the blade from his tracksuit bottoms and began knifing the defenceless dad to death.

Horrific CCTV then showed the younger defendant repeatedly shouting: “Pass me the shank, pass me the shank.”

The teen could be seen approaching Robert before knifing him 11 times – starting at his back before aiming the blows at his front.

As the sword is passed to Earnshaw, he grabbed it by both hands “like an axe” and brought it down on the victim eight times in his side and back.

At one point, the twisted pair paused to catch their breath and began rifling through Robert’s pockets as he lay dying.

Prosecutor Peter Makepeace QC said: “Earnshaw and (the boy) together holding the sword and crouching to the upper body then seem to make a concerted effort to saw the head from the shoulders.

“Both then jointly stab the upper body using their combined force.”

The CCTV then showed Earnshaw chopping at the victim’s head 15 times before the second teen tries grabbing the weapon and a tussle ensues.

When police arrived at the scene, one of the pair was “using the sword in sawing motion to the neck area of the deceased as if trying to detach the head from the body”.

Another colleague who had approached the boys as they skulked in the car park was seriously injured as he tried to help his friend.

Drug tests found Earnshaw had taken a mixture of cocaine and a cheap tranquilliser that causes drowsiness and confusion.

A post mortem found Robert died from “at least 100 sharp force injuries to the body” – mainly to his head, neck and upper body.

The court was told the dad-of-two enjoyed gardening, golf and walking in the Yorkshire Dales.

Speaking after the sentencing today, DCI Marc Bowes of the Homicide and Major Enquiry Team, Senior Investigating Officer in the case, said: “It is no exaggeration to say the level of violence used by these males in the attacks was absolutely barbaric.

“They both acted in a manner which many of us would struggle to comprehend and committed acts which were among the worst that I and other members of my investigation team have witnessed in our policing careers.

“We can’t begin to imagine the appalling impact Mr Wilson’s murder has had on his family. Their courage and dignity in coping with such a traumatic event has been immense.”
