Transgender woman, 26, smiles after being found GUILTY of murdering random stranger on night out

  • She put cat in a blender before carrying out twisted murder

A sadistic transgender woman has Friday been found guilty of murdering a BMW engineer in a ‘Don’t F*** with Cats’ inspired killing. 

Details of The Murder

Scarlet Blake, 26, battered and strangled Jorge Martin Carreno, 30, after stalking the streets of Oxford looking for a ‘vulnerable victim’ having been urged to kill by her gun and death-obsessed partner in America.

She targeted Carreno – who was a stranger to her – as he walked home from a night out in July 2021.

His body was found in the River Cherwell at Parsons Pleasure having drowned after receiving a blow to the back of his head and being strangled.

Blake – who had filmed herself dissecting and putting a neighbour’s cat in a food blender four months before the cold-blooded murder – showed no emotion as a jury at Oxford Crown Court returned a guilty verdict. 

Members of her victim’s family wept in court as the verdict was delivered.

The Wicked Smile

The jury of five women and seven men reached their verdict after deliberating for just six hours after a trial lasting eight days. As Blake left the dock she smiled briefly towards the public gallery.

The victim’s family sat through hours of distressing evidence as prosecutors described how Blake smashed Carreno over the head with a vodka bottle rendering his helpless and then strangled him.

After the guilty verdict, Jorge’s devastated family who had travelled from Spain to attend the trial paid tribute to ‘beloved son and brother’.

Blake had admitted dissecting the animal, removing the fur and skin and placing it in a blender but blames her former partner Ashlynn Bell.

The court previously heard Blake had an ‘extreme interest in death and in harm’ and killed the family pet after watching a Netflix documentary called Don’t F*** With Cats: Hunting An Internet Killer. In the programme a man, Luka Magnotta, kills kittens before filming a murder.

His body was pushed into the River Cherwell where he drowned.

What Prosecution Says

Prosecutors said Blake had deliberately set out to kill after previously revelling in the slaughter and dissection of a neighbour’s cat.

While her death obsessed partner Bell watched from her home in the US, Blake live streamed cutting up the cat while it was still alive.

A vet determined it would have been in extreme pain until its heart was ripped out. Police would later find the heart in a trinket box that Blake kept as a souvenir.

Jurors have also seen videos of the defendant and her partner engaging in consensual strangulation with ligatures.

Prosecutors had alleged the cat killing was relevant to the murder trial as it shows Blake has a ‘disturbing interest in what it would be like to harm a living creature’.
