Angel Lynn Biography
Who is Angel Lynn?
Angel Lynn, 19, fell out of a pickup truck at 60 mph after being kidnapped by Chay Bowskill.
Angel Lynn left with life-shattering injuries after trying to run away from her controlling boyfriend
The teenager suffered catastrophic brain damage and she is unable to walk, talk or feed herself.
She suffered brain damage and is now “locked out for life” from the outside world, unable to walk, talk or feed herself.
Her mother, Nikki, 47, heartbroken, said: “This has ruined Angel’s life.
“She will never have a job and she will never be a mother. She will never go out with her brothers, sisters or friends again.”
“And it has also ruined our lives. She needs 24/7 care. That is our life now.
“It’s coming out in less than three years. It makes me furious. What kind of message does that send to monsters like him?
“You can go back to trying to ruin other women’s lives while my daughter is trapped forever.”
Angel’s father, Patrick, 53, insisted: “I will never forgive him for what he has done.
He “has stolen everything from Angel and has paid such a small price with that sentence.”
Bowskill, 20, was filmed grabbing Angel “like a rag doll,” carrying her across a busy street and throwing her into the back of a Transit, which sped away.
Moments later, the little college student fell from the vehicle. Bowskill was found guilty of kidnapping and coercive behavior but acquitted of pushing Angel out of the truck.
He was sentenced to a total of seven and a half years in prison on Monday and will serve half of his sentence behind bars: three years and nine months.
Considering the time he has already served in pre-trial detention, he will be eligible for his release in June 2024.
Angel’s family said they are outraged that Bowskill received only two years for the kidnapping, even though the crime carries a maximum sentence of life in prison.
They said they planned to ask for a review of the kidnapping sentence, saying it was “unduly lenient”.
And they added that they were surprised by the sentence when the judge seemed to recognize the serious consequences of kidnapping.
Although it can carry life in prison, the kidnapping currently has no sentencing guidelines, which the family believes worked in Bowskill’s favor.
Angel’s dedicated parents, both cleaners, from Loughborough, Leics, say they now face a lifetime of bills running into the tens of thousands of pounds to care for her at home.
Nikki, a mother of six, said: “For weeks the doctors did not believe that Angel would survive. I will never forget the face of the doctor who told me that he was going to die.
“I felt like my heart had been ripped out of my chest. The world was spinning. I couldn’t eat for a week, I lived off the water.
“Even now we don’t know how long Angel has and what quality of life we can give him.”
Patrick said: “Angel loved life, he was so full of life and he had so much to look forward to. She dreamed of being a police forensic scientist.
“But all of her hopes and dreams, and our hopes and dreams for her, have been taken away.
“I will never walk her down the aisle. We’ll never see her graduate from her or get her dream job or help her move house.
“We’ll never have little Angel grandchildren of hers. And we’ll never enjoy her unabashed sense of fun.”
But Judge Spencer said he had also taken her youth and immaturity into account when sentencing.
He said he agreed with Bowskill’s own attorney’s description of him as a “little boy in a man’s shoes.”
Judge Spencer told him, “You are an immature 20-year-old.”
Bowskill, from Syston, Leics, was acquitted of intentionally causing GBH, but convicted of kidnapping Angel and jailed for two years.
In addition, he was found guilty of controlling and coercive behavior and sentenced to three years and three months in jail, consecutively.
A jury also found him guilty of perverting the course of justice, for which he was sentenced to two years and three months in prison, also consecutively.
His friend Rocco Sansome, 20, from Loughborough, was convicted of kidnapping and sentenced to 21 months in jail.
He admitted to possessing a Class B controlled drug (cannabis) and was jailed for seven days, to run concurrently.
He also admitted to driving while out of shape due to cannabis use and was sentenced to a 12-month driving ban.
Farah Nazeer, executive director of Women’s Aid, said last night: “The fact that the perpetrator can get out so soon shows that we urgently need domestic abuse training for all judges.
“This sends a dangerous message about how seriously we take violence against women in this country: Judges need to send a clear message that domestic abuse will not be tolerated.”
