ESSEX, England (PIX11) –A chilling recording of a 911 call has been released revealing how a teenager allegedly killed his friend, according to news.com.au.
Remaining calm during the call just hours after the stabbing on Feb. 17, 2013, Lewis Daynes explained that he needed the dispatched to send police to his address.
Daynes, 19, explained that he had an altercation with fellow online gamer Breck Bednar, 14, while at his flat in Essex, England.
“Only one of us came out alive,” Daynes said.
“I grabbed the knife and stabbed him in the back of the neck, I believe somewhere near the brain stem.”
Daynes said he doesn’t remember exactly what happened but, “the fight ended with me cutting his throat.”
During the call, Daynes offered his name, age and address before claiming Bednar had come at him with a penknife.
After giving his version of what happened, Daynes cut short the conversation, politely telling the call operator, “thank you for your help.”
Police arrived to find Daynes in the bedroom and discovered he had submerged his computer equipment in water to destroy any evidence of his crime. They also found duct tape that was reportedly used to tie up the victim.
Daynes pleaded guilty to murder on Nov. 25.
BBC reported that the two boys started talking on a gaming website in 2013, but friends and family suspected Bednar was being controlled and manipulated by Daynes.
Daynes then reportedly lured Bednar to his home the night before the stabbing.
There was evidence of sexual activity between the two shortly before Bednar was killed, prosecutor Richard Whittam QC told the court this week.
According to BBC, Daynes will serve a minimum term of 25 years.
