She wrote: “Only thing keeping me going is seeing aitch on wednesday, hopefully he’ll see me and we’ll get married xxx”

A 19-year-old man from Tamworth is being held on suspicion of her murder, Staffordshire Police confirmed today.

Her body was discovered in a stream by a devastated family member in Tamworth, Staffs, shortly after 9pm yesterday.

Keeley’s heartbroken mum Debbie Watkins launched an appeal on Facebook after she went missing as she returned from watching Brit rapper Aitch perform in Birmingham.

Friends joined other family members in the frantic search for the “beautiful soul” as they scoured surrounding streets in the Leyfields area of the town.

But a heartbroken relative found the barmaid’s body in Wigginton Park close to where she was last seen.


A tearful relative said: “It has torn the family apart.

“Keeley had just gone on a night out, she was so excited about seeing Aitch and nobody thought they would never see her again.

“The family had spent all day looking for her, and when it got dark, her uncle came round to my house asking if we had any torches for them to use to search the park.

“He looked absolutely broken. They all went out to look for her and it was one of the family who actually found the body.

“It’s beyond heartbreaking and I don’t think they will ever get over this.”

Tributes have poured in for tragic Keeley.

Her cousin Sian Phillips wrote on Facebook: “Miss you always love you forever my baby cousin.”

Her aunt Jodie Majer posted some pictures of herself with Keeley on Facebook this morning and wrote: “My beautiful Niece who is more like my little sister!! I love you so much.”

Dozens of friends commented on the post offering their condolences.


Grieving friends laid flowers at the park today where her body was discovered.

One bouquet read: “Keely, sending you all my love, you will be missed by all. Rest well x.”

Another said: “Keeley, I am going to miss you so so so much. Your laugh, smiley face and through and through beautiful soul.

“You are going to be missed by everyone lucky enough to have ever met you.

“Miss you already so much, until we meet again, sleep tight.”

Pals had launched an appeal for information after Keeley disappeared on Leyfields housing estate which surrounds the park at 4am on Thursday.

Her mum Ms Watkins wrote: “Hello has anybody seen Keeley Bunker since early hours of this morning? “Please really worried.

“She went to a concert but hasn’t been seen since she walked home in leyfields abt half 4 this morning.”

So sorry for your loss. Keeley was a beautiful young girl
