Essex mother heartbroken after son's ashes given to abusive ex-boyfirend - Daily Mail

Monday, October 10, 2016

Bluestar-Hill insisted on having control over his daughter's funeral at Adam & Greenwood Funeral Home in Billericay, Essex, forcing Miss Turner to say goodbye to her daughter while listening to gangster rap. He also barred her loved ones from the ceremony, she claimed, adding: 'He even stopped me speaking to my family. It broke me.'  Devastated: Mother Chloe Turner has been left heartbroken by the funeral home's decisionJust months later Bluestar-Hill was jailed for nine years and four months after he admitted wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm and two charges of assault occasioning actual bodily harm.But because Bluestar-Hill applied for the cremation, he has the legal authority to give the ashes to his family, even though he remains in jail.  An injunction imposed by the court for Miss Turner's own protection prevents her from contacting her ex-boyfriend, meaning she cannot appeal to him to return the ashes. Miss Turner, who now has new boyfriend and a two-year-old daughter, Jessie, said Bluestar-Hill keeping Alexis' ashes was 'just another way for him to get at me'.She said: 'He doesn't care about Alexis. If he cared about her he wouldn't have beat me up in front of her - he's done this to spite me. Abuse: Miss Turner's legs still bear the scars of Bluestar-Hill's physical attacks'This is him being evil again and trying to control me.'Lorri Turner, senior manager at Adam & Greenwood Funeral Home, where the funeral took place, said he sympathised with Miss Turner but had no choice.Mr Turner said: 'Legally, we can only release the ashes to the individual who applied for cremation - in this case the father - or someone appointed by them through appropriate written consent.'We therefore had no alternative but to release the ashes.' Dagenham MP Jon Cruddas said he was backing her while Barking MP Margaret Hodge is exploring legal action to help her constituent.Ms Hodge said: 'I am continuing to do everything I can to help Chloe with this situation.' ...
