Police appeal to trace identity of dead man

Published

on

Police in Worcestershire are appealing for the public’s help as they try to trace a dead man who was found in the River Avon last week.

Officers were called to the Weir Meadow Caravan Park in the town of Evesham at 10.10am on Wednesday 19 February when a member of the public spotted a body in the river that had been caught on a boat mooring.

Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service sent a boat crew to recover the man, who appeared to have been in the water for some days.

However, detectives have not been able to identity him: he had no ID or wallet on him and he does not fit any outstanding missing persons reports from Worcestershire or any of the policing areas upstream from Evesham – i.e. Warwickshire, West Midlands, Northamptonshire and Leicestershire.

After an appeal locally failed to trace the man, Detectives are releasing nationwide images of the clothes he wearing when he was found, which are:

• A pair of well-used Caterpillar boots;
• A studded leather belt;
• A tweed-like coat worn under a dark blue body warmer;
• A thick-knit jumper with a zipped collar;
• A blue and red-checked shirt;
• Dark blue jeans.
Found in a pocket were a pair of metal-rimmed glasses in a hard, blue case from Boots.

Detective Sergeant Chris Percival, who is leading the search, said: “Usually in such tragic cases, we can quickly identify the person and inform their next of kin, so it is unfortunate that with this man we have so little to go on.

“We thought it was more likely the man was from Worcestershire or Warwickshire, but our local appeals have not been successful, so we spreading our appeal nationally and sending his details to police forces across the country.

“I hope someone somewhere will recognise the description and the clothes he was wearing, and contact West Mercia Police straightway.”

DS Percival can be contacted at Worcester CID via the non-emergency police number 101 or information can be passed on anonymously through the independent charity Crimestoppers (0800 555 111 or via their website : www.crimestoppers-uk.org). Please quote the reference number 151s 19/02/14

DEAD: Sally Jones Britain’s Most Wanted Woman and Islamic State Recruiter Killed

Published

on

The White Widow Sally Jones has been Killed in a US Drone Strike, Jones who had planned many terror attacks fled the UK to become a IS Recruiter.

She was Britain’s Most Wanted Woman. It is believed she died in a US Air Force Drone Strike which happened near to the border of Syria and Iraq.

Jones was killed in June 2017, with the news kept hush because of fears that her 12-year-old son may have also been killed.

Jones left her home in Chatham, Kent in 2013 with her son Jojo to join Islamic State in Syria. During this time she often used her son as a human shield to save her own life.

The CIA and MI6 spent months tracking down Jones before they launched a Drone Strike and killed her.

She played a key role in the recruitment of young females becoming jihadis often leaving their families in the middle of the night to head out and join the Islamic State.

Despite the claims that Jones is dead, the US cannot 100 percent be sure she is dead, as they made no attempt to recover any DNA, But they are very confident that she is dead.

Drone Strikes are very clever in the way they work as they are able to follow targets for a number of weeks before launching a missile attack without any civilians being killed.

However, they cannot confirm if 12-year-old brainwashed Jojo has been killed also, something which the Americans could face a backlash over.

Jojo was brainwashed he faced years of forced lessons in radical Islam & firearms training. He recently featured within an IS execution video standing behind a row of prisoners who was kneeling on the floor before pulling the trigger and murdering them.

Jones converted to Islam and was nicknamed the White Widow after her Islamic State husband Junaid Hussain was killed by a drone in 2015.

Hussain aged 21 and from Birmingham brainwashed Jones to such a degree she became head of recruitment for young women and schoolgirls within the Islamic State.

Jones & Hussain planned many attacks across Europe and America and is believed to have been a key recruiter and brainwasher of many wanting to join the Islamic State.

Jones was linked to the planning of a number of major terror attacks including one which planned to blow up the Queen and Prince Philip on the streets of London during the VJ celebrations.
