EXCLUSIVE: Karen Tunmore says she bludgeoned Scott Pritchard to death in 2004 — before she evaded police probe and taught at football youth clubs

Karen Tunmore, 35, from Towton, Killingworth, pleaded guilty on August 8 to the 2004 murder of 19-year-old Scott Pritchard.

He was rushed to hospital with serious head injuries, but doctors were unable to save him and he passed away.

It came just days after the force announced they had charged her with the offence after new information came to light.

In the aftermath of her admission, senior investigating officer Detective Chief Inspector John Bent said: It is rare for a murder case to remain open for so long, because suspects are normally identified at a very early stage.

I am glad that Scotts family may finally see some justice, as it has been an incredibly difficult time for them since he passed away.

To have your son murdered is tragic in itself, but for his killer to remain in the community for such a long time is heart-breaking.

Hopefully they can take some comfort from knowing that Karen Tunmore has been brought to justice.
