Matthew Selby Wiki – Matthew Selby Biography
Matthew Selby is a Greater Manchester native who was charged with murder on Monday after Saturday’s incident. Today, he has appeared in court accused of murdering a teenage girl while on holiday to a busy seaside caravan site.
North Wales Police say the incident occurred at Ty Mawr Holiday Park near Rhyl – a high-end Parkdean resorts venue with a heated indoor pool and a short walk to the beach.
He is 19 years old.
Selby, whose neighbors claim to have learning difficulties, is suspected of killing the 15-year-old girl Amanda Selby on Saturday afternoon in a camp where hundreds of people stayed on one of the busiest holiday weekends of the year.
Neighbors told MailOnline that Selby lived with his grandparents after his parents’ relationship broke down.
One said: ‘Matthew has learning difficulties. We’ve not seen Matthew as much recently because mum and dad had split up. His sister went with his mum and Matthew stayed with dad for a while before moving in with his grandparents. He was a happy lad. It’s so sad.’
Another said: ‘He was very vocal. You could hear him before you saw him. He seemed nice enough. Their mum is disabled and rides around in a motorized scooter.’
Matthew Selby Charged
The 19-year-old has appeared in court charged with murdering a 15-year-old at a busy seaside caravan site.
On Saturday, July 31, the tragedy happened at Ty Mawr Holiday Park, Towyn, a seaside resort popular with families.
Selby, of Windermere Crescent, Ashton-under-Lyne, Greater Manchester, was accused of murdering the 15-year-old at the site.
This afternoon district judge Gwyn Jones at Llandudno Magistrates Court remanded him in custody until tomorrow when he will appear again at Mold Crown Court.
Selby, wearing a grey sweatshirt and between two guards in the glass-fronted dock, spoke only to confirm his name, address, and date of birth and confirm that he understood the charge.
Prosecutor James Neary said there was no entitlement to bail. In contrast, during a hearing that lasted less than two minutes, Selby’s defense solicitor Simon Sargent said, ‘ I have nothing to add, save to say this a tragic case.’
An air ambulance rushed to the scene on Saturday afternoon, as parts of the Parkdean resort and a caravan were cordoned off while police investigated the 100acre park.
