Thomas Cashman found guilty of murdering Olivia Pratt-Korbel

“A little girl who will never get to go to high school, who will never run down on Christmas morning to open her presents.”

The words of Merseysde’s chief constable on the murder of nine-year-old Olivia Pratt Korbel – as her killer Thomas Cashman was found guilty.

The trial revealed not just a child’s life stolen by a violent criminal – but the communities terrified by gangs and the witnesses petrified to come forward.
