Jessica Patel: mystery surrounds death as man arrested on suspicion of the murder

Published

on

Four days after the murder of Jessica Patel, West Yorkshire Police have arrested the main suspect.

Cleveland Police did not release details of the person they wanted to speak to in connection with the murder, Saying this would hinder ongoing investigations.

This evening the murder suspect has not been named, He has simply been described as a 37-year-old man.

Forensic officers and detectives have continued searching Jessica Patel’s home and the Roman Road Pharmacy where she was a company director.

Detectives have been working flat out since they received a call alerting them to the murder of Jessica.

No family appeals released

Jessica Patel lived at The Avenue with her husband Mitesh Patel who was from the Leeds area of West Yorkshire. His Facebook profile says he was the “Superintendent at Roman Road Pharmacy” which continued updating their timeline after Jesica Patel’s Murder.

They worked very hard together to build the business the Roman Road Pharmacy which is located very close to their home address. Since the Murder, no family member has released any tributes to Jessica.

Following the Death of Jessica, the Pharmacy which has been closed since 8 pm on Monday evening released a post about dealing with Hypertension and reducing high blood pressure making no mention to the murder of one of the company owners.

Despite this, a small number of flowers have been left at the scene.

Something horrific happened inside The Avenue!

Very little details surrounding Jessica Patel’s injuries have been released, We do know these are believed to have been horrific.

What we do know is Jessica worked until 8pm on Monday evening before closing the shop for the evening, she headed home within half an hour she had been murdered.

Three ambulances were sent to the scene following reports of one person needing urgent medical attention.

Cleveland Police deployed an armed response unit to the scene of the murder, without speculating this is very rare in a murder investigation.

Once the armed officers had deployed to the scene they formed an armed cordon around the area. People within a nearby church were unable to leave and advised to go back inside the address until it was ‘Safe’.

Some members of the public have told Police Hour they were warned to stay indoors as a ‘Man Mad’ was on the loose.

Eyewitnesses have also said they heard a deafening scream coming from the address before cops attended and shut down the area.

Door to Door enquires tell us that locals have been asked if they heard screaming and if a door to door salesman had knocked on their door in the hours leading up to the murder.

Circumstances Surrounding the death

Cleveland Police released very little details to the media surrounding the murder of Jessica, Suggesting they knew who the main suspect was and that they just needed time and space arrest their main suspect.

Cleveland Police released a statement saying they would not be releasing any circumstances surrounding the murder of Jessica or any details of suspects as this would hinder ongoing investigations.

It simple terms Cleveland Police did not need any help from the public or media because they knew who their main suspect was it was just a matter of catching him.

Cleveland Police did, however, appeal for dashcam footage from outside the house allowing detectives visual evidence.

CCTV Covered drive and entrance off the shared drive from both houses within the location, This could be the main reason as to why Cleveland Police did not need to release any criminal appeals or release details of any wanted suspects.

If these cameras were working the killer would have been captured entering and leaving the address.

Cleveland Police Breaks Silence and releases a statement. 

“Police have this afternoon arrested a 37-year-old man in the West Yorkshire Police area on suspicion of murder following the death of 34-year-old Jessica Patel in Middlesbrough on Monday 14th May.

“The man remains in police custody at this time.”

Cleveland Police are continuing to appeal for anyone who may have witnessed anything suspicious outside of the avenue or who may have dashcam footage around the time of the incident.

Published

on

Police say they are not linking the incidents together despite a vile video being uploaded to Facebook just days before.

Sick thugs covered the homeless man in red paint as he sat outside a supermarket, the attack was uploaded to facebook along with the the words : ‘This is how we deal with the beggars on the street. He is not even a beggar we spray them to death”.

Days later he was found dead, Police say these circumstances are non-suspicious.

The shocking video was shared on Facebook of Micheal Cash outside of Tesco Express in Normanby.

Despite Cash being found dead days later police refuse to link the death to this incident after his body was found in Eston Cemetery in Middlesbrough on Wednesday afternoon.

Crime Scene Investigators could be seen in the bushes within the cemetery and quickly put a cordon in place.

It has been speculated that Cash killed himself following the incident, but until circumstances are known we will not be able to speculate.

Police have confirmed the death is not suspicious there it is our assumption the circumstances around the death are no longer being investigated.

Police have not formally identified the body but a member of Mr Cash’s family confirmed they were visited by detectives on Wednesday.

Police have asked people not to speculate on social media regarding the incident.

Cleveland Police have released a statement saying “The death of a man whose body was found in Eston Cemetery on Wednesday 12th September is not being treated as suspicious.

“The man who is believed to be aged in his 30s has not yet been formally identified.

“A post-mortem examination has been held and although the death is not being treated as suspicious police believe this man was the victim of a previous incident of assault which resulted in the man being sprayed with red paint.

“The incident occurred near to Tesco Express on the High Street in Normanby and was reported to police on Sunday 9th September.”

Detective Inspector Matt Hollingsworth said: “Police are aware of the speculation on social media regarding the cause of the man’s death but we are not linking the assault with his death.

“Officers are carrying out enquiries in relation to the assault outside of Tesco and would appeal for anyone with information or anyone who witnessed it to contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101 quoting 166668, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or www.crimestoppers-uk.org.”
