Two men arrested for plotting to decapitate singer Joss Stone with samurai sword
The two men‘s plot included also the use of a knife and a hammer, following her decapitation, the two wanted to dump her body in a river. Apparently Mr Liverpool and Bradshaw truly hated the 25 year-old singer and wanted to get rid of her.
Several notes have been found at the men’s houses, some of them read: ‘Jocelyn RIP’ or ‘Once Jocelyn’s dead… find a river to dump her.’
Mr Liverpool, 35, and Mr Bradshaw, 32, were arrested a few miles from Joss Stone‘s house. The two managed to figure out where she lived thanks to the MTV programme Cribs. The police was called by sospicious neighbours and once they arrived they found in their car: a section of hosepipe, a hammer, a samurai sword, black bags and tape.
This is what prosecutor Simon Morgan said: ‘In interview, the defendants, in essence, declined to comment. The items in their possession, the trips to the area, the fact that the intended victim was at home, the notes and maps all point to a determined effort on the part of the defendants to carry out the plan they had hatched some time before. The evidence established that they intended to rob and kill their target using the equipment they had with them. This case is about a decision by a group of individuals, of which these defendants are two, to rob and kill Joss Stone.’
