    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.

    A 15-year-old boy will appear in court on Thursday charged with the murder of Jodi Jones.
    Detectives have also charged the boy's 45-year-old mother with attempting to pervert the course of justice.

    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/crime/story.jsp?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."

    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.

    BBC 12/2004

    "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"

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2009/aug/02/luke-mitchell-jodi-jones-appeal

    More info on DNA on the Luke Mitchell is innocent website
    http://caseblog.wronglyaccusedperso...-is-innocent/other-suspects/suspects-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.

    Yep - zero physical evidence and the circumstantial evidence has been discussed thoroughly in Sandra Lean's book.

    The sooner they catch the real killer, the better. Can't help but feel the wrong guy is in jail.

    Apart from anything else, there just does not seem to have been the time or opportunity for Luke to have done it. He doesn't seem to tick any of the boxes as far as I can see.

    i still remember this like it was only recently. happened an hour away from where i live....something never sat right with me as luke being the killer...just something in my gut.

    if it does in fact turn out that way,i hope he sues the azz off cps,to have sat in prision since the age of 14 for a murder he never committed,that would seriously mess you up
