    So we don't forget Jodi

    THE lawyer representing a suspect in the murder of 14-year-old Jodi Jones today ordered the procurator fiscal to "put up or shut up".

    Nigel Beaumont claimed the fact that his client Luke Mitchell, 15, had not been charged more than three months after a Lothian and Borders Police file was submitted to Crown prosecutors indicates there is not enough evidence to proceed against him over the Dalkeith girl’s death.

    Yet another young murderer. Convicted.

    An occult obsessed young man was convicted of the brutal,
    murder of his 14 y.o. girlfriend.

    Here's the link:

    http://news.independent.co.uk/uk/cri...p?story=603473

    a few snippets from the article:

    A teenage boy obsessed by the occult and the music of the singer Marilyn Manson was convicted yesterday of the murder and mutilation of his 14-year-old girlfriend...

    Judge Lord Nimmo Smith told the teenager he would face "detention without limit of time" for what he described as a "truly evil murder".

    "What you did was to subject Jodi to a horrible death and one can only hope it was mercifully quick," said Lord Nimmo Smith. "There must, however, have been a time before she became unconscious when she knew that you, her boyfriend, whom she held in affection and trust and whom she left joyfully to meet, had turned into a fiend.

    "She still had her life ahead of her and you snuffed it out. She was loved by her family and you have left them bereft.

    "The horror of what you have done has changed many lives and will last far beyond any sentence I can pass on you."

    Geez, this is the rest of the Jodi Jones story! I wondered how that played out, and now I know.

    Jodi's killer who was convicted of her murder in 2005 passes a lie detector test in prison.

    Murder of Jodi Jones - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    This is interesting. No DNA links him to the crime scene, convicted on (what seems to be weak) circumstantial evidence....

    Is this guy innocent?

    ETA- His mother also passed a lie detector test.

    Personally, I think he is. There is no evidence against the fella, it's all circumstancial - most of which has been pulled apart since the court case.

    ....'there was not one DNA profile that could not be accounted for. Every profile belonged to people who knew Jodi, including Luke.....which ruled out anyone unknown as the killer.'


    'The trial heard that Jodi's body was left uncovered and exposed to the elements for eight hours after it was first discovered, possibly risking the destruction of vital DNA evidence.'

    "Looking at that picture, in all the DNA analyses you carried out one, and only one, bit of Jodi's DNA was found on Luke's trousers and that could be a perfectly innocent transfer."

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/4098795.stm


    From The Guardian 08/2009

    "The reports also show, the new defence team says, that a blood sample found on her produced a full DNA match with a named individual and a second full DNA profile, for an unknown male, was retrieved from a condom found near the body.

    The latter individual was identified three years later when he committed a crime and provided a match on the DNA database"

    More info on DNA on the Luke Mitchell is innocent website
    http://caseblog.wronglyaccusedperson...pects-and-dna/

    I've been reading a lot about this case the past couple of days. The whole thing stinks to high heaven.

    There are other suspects (which according to the above website were not investigated properly) which seem far more likely to me.

    Plenty to read about the case here

    Not that I've read it all! But it certainly sounds as though there were several avenues not fully explored. The evidence against Luke seems to be very flimsy.

    A good summary of the case here too.

    http://paulviking.websitetoolbox.com...89531?trail=15

    This guy has been sitting in prison for almost 9 years, since he was 14, and could very well be innocent.
