Daniel Bartlem (born 11 November 1996) is convicted murderer from Nottingham, UK. He is often dubbed as the "Coronation Street Killer" by the media. Daniel displayed disturbing behaviours, such as defecating and hiding his feces around his room. He also wrote violent stories and would have his mother and her boyfriend read them.On Easter in April 2011, when he was 14 years old, Daniel used a claw hammer and bludgeoned his mother to death as she slept. He then burned the house, but before doing so, he helped his younger brother and the family dog out of the house. Initially, he claimed that a burglar had hurt his mother and burnt the house. However, as investigators searched through his computer, they found evidence that he was searching things like "how to get away with murder" and other related topics. He was immediately arrested and tried. Daniel Bartlam was sentenced to 16 years in a juvenile detention facility.
