DEMI Moore's fitness instructor was one of the bodyguards murdered and mutilated by a mob in Iraq, it emerged yesterday.

Former US Navy Seal Scott Helvenston, 38, trained Demi for the movie GI Jane.

He was working as a contract guard for Blackwater Security Consulting outside Fallujah when his convoy was hit with rockets and grenades.

He died with three US colleagues on Wednesday. In scenes that shocked the world, their bodies were dragged through the streets, mutilated and strung up.

Friends in his home town San Diego, California, were yesterday mourning Helvenston who was also a movie stuntman and was "always camping and surfing with his two kids".
