Marketing worker, 41, who ‘stabbed his girlfriend to death before killing himself’ was ‘a woman-hating sex addict who bragged of having hundreds of lovers’, friends reveal
- Maddie Durdant-Hollamby, 22, was found stabbed to death in home in Kettering
- Body of boyfriend, Ben Green, 41, was also found with self-inflicted knife wounds
- Friends slammed ‘sex-crazed’ and misogynistic Green’s relationship with women
- They say he slept with up to eight women at a time while married with children
- And that ‘chilling’ and ‘calculated’ Green was a ‘woman-hating sex addict’
Former friends have slammed a misogynistic ‘woman-hating sex addict’ who police believe stabbed a young marketing executive to death before turning the knife on himself in a chilling murder-suicide.
Marketing officer Maddie Durdant-Hollamby, 22, was found stabbed to death by police at a property in Slate Drive, in Kettering shortly after 1pm on August 27 following a report of concern for her welfare.
41-year-old marketing director Benjamin Green was understood to have met Maddie while the pair worked together, and they dated for approximately a year.
But speaking after his death, friends have since revealed he was a misogynistic ‘sex-crazed monster’ who slept with up to eight women at the same time while he was married with children.
A former friend told The Sun that ‘chilling and calculated’ Green would treat women as his ‘property’ and showed them no respect.

Police believe 41-year-old Benjamin Green – whose body was also found in the same house as Ms Durdant-Hollamby – stabbed the young woman to death before turning the blade on himself in a horrifying incident.
Friends said he had a penchant for women who were ‘much younger than him’ and would travel across the country to pursue them.
One told the Sun: ‘He treated women as his property.
‘I knew him for a year and there would be hundreds of women in that time.
‘He had zero respect for his conquests and would be so rude to them. It was chilling the way he always said he would get what he wanted.’
Northamptonshire Police said preliminary post-mortem reports showed Ms Durdant-Hollamby died of stab wounds, and Mr Green of self-inflicted knife wounds.
The force said Ms Durdant-Hollamby’s death was being treated as murder and no-one else was being sought in connection with the incident.
It added that both families have been informed of the findings and continue to be supported by specialist officers.
Maddie was originally from the wealthy village of Wimblington, Cambridgeshire, where her parents, Steve Durdant-Hollamby, 48 and Rachel, 47 are well known members of the community.
A friend of Mr Durdant-Hollamby who was speaking at Parkfield Sports Club on Tuesday told MailOnline: ‘Steve told us that Maddie wasn’t that happy with Ben and had spoken about ending the relationship.
‘He was almost as old as Steve and Rachel and had three kids from a previous marriage and this concerned them. Any parent would be worried if their 22-year-old daughter came home with a man like this.’
He added: ‘Steve and Rachel are only in their 40s and so was Ben so I can understand their concerns.’

‘A talented dancer, her creative talent continued through school and into her career in marketing. Her life has been sadly cut short just as her career was blossoming.
‘Our thoughts are with everybody who knew and loved Maddie as much as we did.’
Maddie’s mother Rachel also posted a heartbreaking tribute on Facebook and said: ‘These are the hardest words we have ever had to write.
‘Our beautiful beautiful Maddie is gone.
‘She has grown her own set of wings and gone to fly with the angels.
’22 years of loving this amazing girl will never be enough, we thought we had a lifetime ahead of us.
‘Please hold your loved ones a little tighter and kiss them a little longer*.. you never know when it may be your last opportunity.
‘Baby girl*. You were our world and our lives are not complete without you in it. Heaven is so lucky to have you.’
Senior investigating officer, Detective Chief Inspector Joe Banfield, said: ‘Our investigation into the deaths of Maddie and Ben continues, and a file is being prepared for the coroner.
‘We continue to ask that the media leave the families and friends of Maddie and Ben to grieve in peace, and cease any efforts to contact them at this desperately sad time.’
