Ivy Virgin aged 57 from Boston in Lincolnshire, died of multiple stab wounds, one in her neck; one in her left breast, one in her left shoulder, and another wound in her upper left arm.  She also had slash marks on her wrists - consistent with defence wounds.

Baxter was caught 8 months after Virgin's death while he was shoplifting. He had a knife with a broken tip. This knife was shown to be the knife that killed Ivy Virgin, as its tip had been left in her body.

Baxter was detained at Her Majesty's pleasure, as he was only 15. He was released in his 20s, but immediately arrested again for rape.
