Lyrico Steede: Documentary To Air In UK

April 2, 2024

A British television documentary is set to air focusing on the methods used by detectives to catch the killers of Bermudian teenager Lyrico Steede.

He was murdered after being lured to a park in the Bulwell area of Nottingham by a 16-year-old girl before a group of men – all under 19 at the time – attacked and fatally stabbed the 17-year-old on February 13, 2018.

Steede was taken to hospital with serious injuries and died six days later.

A range of digital forensic techniques were used by Nottinghamshire Police to identify those involved in the ambush, including the use of cell site data to map the movements of the suspects, downloads and analysis of phone content, and extensive reviews of CCTV footage and automatic number plate recognition [ANPR] cameras.

Five people, including the 16-year-old girl, were locked up for a combined 58 and a half years for Steede’s murder.

Nottinghamshire Police set up a cadet base in Steede’s name and an award at the force’s Live Our Best Life Awards.

The four-part documentary, ‘Digital Detectives: Catching Killers’, is set to air on Channel Four on Monday, April 15.

Detective Superintendent Hayley Williams was the senior investigating officer on the case and features in the documentary.

“What happened to Lyrico was an absolute tragedy that is still remembered clearly by all of us who were involved in the case,” she said.

“More than 100 people worked on this investigation, and it’s fair to say that it was a very complex case that saw our team look through hours and hours of CCTV footage.

“Over 1,000 exhibits had to be examined to help us decipher exactly what happened and who might be involved, with a number of different techniques used to uncover the truth.”
