Jodi Jones' killer Luke Mitchell gets grief counselling in prison in bid to be released early

JODI JONES killer Luke Mitchell is having grief counselling in prison in a bid to be freed early.

The pony-tailed fiend is serving a minimum 20 years behind bars for murdering his 14-year-old girlfriend - whose body was found in woods seven years ago this week.

Now Mitchell is visiting a bereavement expert at Shotts prison, Lanarkshire.

Mitchell, 21, hopes the counselling will lead to a cut in his sentence.

Last night, one jail source said: "Mitchell is telling folk he is doing this as part of his rehabilitation.

"But ever since he's been doing it, he has become a total recluse.

"The only time he is coming out of his cell is for his dinner.

"Before he started getting this counselling, he had a couple of pals he was hanging around with but that's all stopped now.

"He's acting really odd but we all know why he is doing it - so it looks good for his appeal."

At court recently, Mitchell was sporting a pony-tailed "skullet" hairdo with shaved sides.

The bizarre cut was revealed on the day judges rejected a plea by QC Gordon Jackson to reopen his appeal.

Mr Jackson claimed at the Court of Criminal Appeal in Edinburgh that Mitchell's original legal team mishandled an appeal thrown out two years ago.

But the judges will give a decision later on whether Mitchell should have his 20-year term reduced. Mr Jackson argued that Mitchell - 14 at the time - was "only a child" when he knifed Jodi and mutilated her body in Dalkeith, Midlothian.

A Scottish Prison Service spokesman said: "We do not comment on individual prisoners."

Last week, we told how head-in-the-bag murderer Alan Cameron, 56 - found guilty of killing former lover Heather Stacey, 44 - had asked for counselling.

And last year sex beast Stuart Leggate got counselling after pretending to be grief-stricken over sexually abusing and strangling eight-year-old Mark Cummings.

Admin says: Is he not several years too late for grief counselling? Could it be that by taking counselling, it makes him look remorseful - something that he has NEVER shown in the past - and it also may look more favourable to the appeal judges? It's an act. I was never entirely convinced of his guilt up until this point. I am now.

Revealed: Jodi killer Luke Mitchell's chilling prison cell poem vowing revenge on his enemies

Luke Mitchell Image 1

Killer Luke Mitchell has penned a sinister threat to enemies - and stuck it on his cell wall.

In his poem, the murderer of 14-year-old Jodi Jones claims he's immortal, talks about drinking blood and vows to seek revenge on those who put him behind bars.

Part of the self-styled "prayer" is taken from the Bible's Psalm 23:4. But it is the rest of the rant which is most disturbing.

In the verse, he claims he will embrace evil and stab it with a "big f*****' stick".

Mitchell, now 21, was caged for killing then-girlfriend Jodi when they were just 14.

The tragic teen was found with her throat slashed in woods separating their family homes in Dalkeith, Midlothian, in 2003.

Mitchell has already blamed Jodi's family for his conviction. It remains unclear if his bizarre poem, entitled My Promise, is addressed to them or others he holds a grudge against.

Written on a sheet of A4 paper, the full passage states: "As I walk through the shadow of the valley of death, I will fear no evil, I will embrace and stab it with a big f*****' stick.

"I will watch it bleed, blood and life it took from me and others, and as I drink this life blood, I will regain my life and theirs.

"I will watch, as those who took so much from us spill their blood on the soil, for they will have no redemption, no mercy, for they gave none.

"I will watch as they wither and die, and I shall seek vengeance for those no longer capable.

"For I am immortal, I cannot die, not untill (sic) I have spilt the life blood of those who would spill mine."

A copy of the script, written in Mitchell's own hand, was passed to the Daily Record by a horrified source at maximum security Shotts prison, in Lanarkshire, where Mitchell is serving his sentence.

Our source at Shotts, which holds some of Scotland's most dangerous criminals, said: "Talking about seeking revenge, drinking blood and watching people wither and die is clearly not the kind of thoughts most decent people have.

"He has had the passage up on his cell wall. for some time and revels in quoting parts of it to his cronies. There is no doubt this is a threat to those he blames for sending him to prison for at least 20 years."

Last night, a leading psychologist slammed the poem as both disturbing and threatening, while showing no emotion for the victim.

Professor Paddy O'Donnell, deputy head of Glasgow University's department of psychology, said: "The emotional quality of the language is extremely high and it consists of a stream of very negative threatening words.

"Anyone reading that is going to feel disturbed and one of the purposes behind the poem is to disturb the reader.

"In that sense, the poem is intended as an aggressive communication rather than a cry for help or even an expression of anguish - it is essentially a long threat.

"It is not exactly a work of art because it uses quotations and quite repetitive imagery, so you are looking at a rather stilted and threatening communication without much in the way of creative novelty."

Professor O'Donnell said he felt the poem revealed Mitchel l to have a massive ego yet, even seven years after the atrocity, he cannot bring himself to accept any blame for the murder.

He added: "He uses quite a lot of biblical imagery which, evoked in the context of the threat, is meant to do two things.

"The first is that it makes the threat more, i n hi s eyes, awesome and inevitable, as he is calling on God as his right hand in this act of threat and vengeance, so it is to enforce the power of the threat.

"It's also an act of grandiosity in that he is taking on these almost supernatural powers, which indicate a massively inflated ego in the writer.

"Because God is on his side, it is a way of avoiding any acceptance of blame or responsibility on his part for anything that has happened. In other words, none of what has happened is his fault and none of what will happen if he acts out the act of vengeance will be his fault.

"It is a communication lacking in any sense of remorse or empathy for the victim of his offence or empathy for the people he is going to threaten or attack.

"Even if you were innocent you could still express empathy for the victim - although you weren't responsible, you would feel something, so there is absolutely no sense of empathy there.

"You are looking at a very narcissistic, grandiose ego with no sense of empathy and a great deal of aggression and resentment towards people he thinks as have wronged him."

At court recently to launch another appeal, Mitchell arrived sporting a pony-tailed "skullet" hairdo.

He showed off the bizarre cut in April just days after it was revealed he had DIY tattoos inked on to his body to mark off the years he had spent behind bars.

Judges are now deliberat ing over whether his 20-year minimum sentence should be reduced.

His legal team - headed by Gordon Jackson QC - argued at the Appeal Court in Edinburgh that Mitchell's original representatives mishandled his first appeal and that he shouldn't have received such a long sentence as he was just a child himself when he committed the murder.

As things stand, Mitchell could end up spending the rest of his life behind bars - a scenario he is desperate to avoid.

Last week, we revealed Mitchell was receiving grief counselling in a bid to be freed early, in the same week as the seventh anniversary of the killing.

A spokesman for the Scottish Prison Service said: "We do not comment on individual prisoners."

Jodi's mother Judith was unavailable for comment last night.

Admin says: Not exactly the convincing actions of an innocent man, is it? Luke Mitchell is an attention seeking, twisted and manipulative young man, who no doubt will milk the fact that he was 'tried by media', in order to get out of serving his full sentence.  If he doesn't sort himself out, and stop acting the Marilyn Manson psycho freak, he's going to see all chances, however slim, of an early release, disappear before his eyes.

 

Another point to consider is that by acting in the bizarre ways that he does - this, the grief counselling, the '6 year anniversary of Jodi's murder tattoo' etc -  could it not be said that he is playing up to the media? What has changed that it suits his purpose to do that now, but it didn't suit him when he was on trial for the brutal murder of his 14 year old girlfriend? Perhaps Luke should realise that we no longer think that he is the devil incarnate - he's just a stupid little boy who has always got to be the centre of attention. I think it's about time Luke Mitchell grew up, shut up, and served his time.

Jeremy Bamber: a profile

Born on 13 January 1961, Jeremy Bamber was 25 when he was jailed for life in 1986 after being found guilty of murdering five members of his adoptive family.

Bamber, now 50, was branded “evil beyond belief” after he was found guilty of shooting dead his adoptive parents, Neville and June Bamber, his adoptive sister Sheila, and her twin six-year-old sons Nicholas and Daniel, at the family’s farm in Tolleshunt D’Arcy, near Maldon, Essex.

Bamber claimed that his sister, who suffered from mild schizophrenia, had carried out the killings and he told police that his father had telephoned him to say she had gone on the rampage with a gun.

However, his trial at Chelmsford Crown Court heard that Bamber had murdered his family in order to ensure that he would inherit the farm.

He has consistently maintained his innocence, twice taking his case to the Court of Appeal. In 2009 he lost his second appeal and was told that he must die behind bars.

Bamber’s lawyers launched his third appeal last year new evidence came to light. A phone log appeared to show that Bamber’s father Jeremy called police on the night he died alongside his wife, daughter and two grandchildren, saying his daughter had gone “berserk” and stolen one of his guns.

 

The log, entitled “Daughter gone berserk”, reads: “Mr Bamber, White House Farm, Tolleshunt d’Arcy – daughter Sheila Bamber, aged 26 years, has got hold of one of my guns.”

It came ten minutes before a second emergency call from Bamber himself, who told officers his father had telephoned him in distress before describing an almost identical situation.

The document appeared to back up what Bamber claimed from the start – that his schizophrenic sister Sheila, known as Bambi, shot her parents and children before turning her gun on herself.

Bamber was the son of woman who had an affair with a married army sergeant, and subsequently gave her baby up for adoption when he was six weeks old. He spent time in Australia and New Zealand before returning to England to work on the Bambers’ farm. He lived five minutes away from his adoptive parents when they were found murdered.

He is currently interned in Whitemoor Prison, Cambridgeshire. In May 2004 he required 28 stitches after he had his throat slit in prison. He was attacked by another prisoner while talking to a friend on the telephone. The knife came within a quarter inch of cutting his jugular vein.

Chicago mobster Frank Calabrese Sr., a hit man who strangled victims and then slashed their throats to be sure they were dead, has died in a federal prison in North Carolina, authorities said.

Calabrese, 75, died on Tuesday at the Butner Federal Medical Center, said Ed Ross, a spokesman for the Federal Bureau of Prisons.

Ross had no information on the cause of death, though Calabrese claimed at his sentencing in 2009 that he suffered from a host of ailments, including an enlarged heart.

The train robbery that went off the rails
 
 

Good yarn: Phil Collins as the Great Train Robber 'Buster' Edwards in the film Buster

At 4.35am on August 8, 1963, Detective Superintendent Malcolm Fewtrell, the head of Buckinghamshire CID, was woken by the phone ringing.

With his 54th birthday less than two months away, Fewtrell had been looking forward to early retirement - but the eight words he heard next would change all that: ‘There’s been a train robbery at Cheddington, Sir.’

Before long, he’d discovered that the robbery was the biggest cash theft in British history, with nearly £2.6million stolen (the equivalent of £45m today).

In charge: Detective Superintendent Malcolm Fewtrell led the hunt for the train robbers

The idea that the great train robbery was a masterpiece of planning and execution by the cream of Britain’s villains has been strangely persistent. In fact, as Nick Russell-Pavier and Stewart Richards’ fascinating, if mildly obsessive, new book proves, this was always a myth that handily suited everybody involved: police, media and the criminals themselves.

It also suited the Royal Mail and British Rail, who were in charge of transporting the money. As the book points out, the problem wasn’t so much that the security precautions were inadequate, as that there weren’t any.

The Glasgow-to-London mail train simply trundled through the night picking up bags of untraceable cash often left sitting on station platforms. No police or security guards were on board. The staff had no way of communicating between carriages, let alone with the outside world.

Ice Cream War murders shock Scotland
THE fire engine sirens screamed louder and louder as the flames licked higher. It was Apri 16, 1984. The whole of Scotland was about to be shocked.

Glasgow has one of the worst records for accidental house fires in Europe.

Hardly a week goes by but some poor soul perishes in flames and smoke in their own home. But rarely do six people perish. Worse, this was no accident.

The Doyle family awoke to the smoke and flames. They fought every inch of the way as their house blazed.
A young mother threw herself over her baby and died as fiery timbers crashed down on her back. All to no avail as the baby died too.

Some managed to open a window and stand there, taking turns to gasp life-saving air.
It would keep them alive until they reached hospital where their burns needed so much morphine their lungs couldn't work properly. Over days, they slowly drowned in their own fluids.
It was the crime of the decade in a decade of crime.


the Doyle murders that sickened the people of Glasgow. The cops nabbed two men - TC Campbell and Joe Steele.

Campbell was well known to them. As a kid, he'd led The Goucho team from Carntyne. A small mob, they punched much heavier than their weight under the guidance of the bright and ruthless Campbell.
As an adult, he soon graduated to crime and became a member of the Barlanark Team - the most successful troop of robbers in modern times.

Along with people like Thomas "The Licensee" McGraw, they specialised in raiding post offices with military precision and were so successful, the security forces from trouble-torn Northern Ireland were called in to help the cops nab them. They were never nabbed.

Campbell retired from crime. Settling down with his wife and kids, he decided a good way to make a living was through an ice cream van.

It was a very good way. So good that some people were fighting over the most lucrative patches.
Ice Cream Wars they called it. Squabbles more like.

Andrew Doyle had run an ice cream van and the cops announced that he and five members of his family were victims of the Ice Cream Wars.

With Campbell and Steele convicted, they became two of the most hated men in Scotland.
But the street knew better.

They knew that another player was seen in Bank end Street that night, was seen close by buying petrol, had asked two junkies to torch a door. The street knew TC Campbell and Joe Steele were innocent.
Campbell went on long hunger strikes, lingering at death's door and Steele escaped again and again from prison, only to hand himself in with the company of the media.

Other prisoners took to the roofs of Barlinnie, Peterhead and Shotts jails, protesting that the Glasgow Two were innocent. As the prisons burned, ordinary citizens began to pay attention.
Maybe Campbell and Steele were innocent after all. Maybe. But it would take longer than a decade to prove that.

In the 1980s, crime was rife but the worst of all was the slaughter of the Doyle family.
That fire was lit in Bankend Street on April 16, 1984, and it would rage on into the 1990s.

'Maybe Steele and Campbell were innocent after all...but it would take years to prove it'

The term used to describe this case will be miscarriage of justice but it was more than that, it was a malicious prosecution by Strathclyde Police.

Exactly 30 years ago, kidnappers broke into the Ballymany Stud in the Republic of Ireland and stole the champion racehorse, Shergar. What happened to the animal remains a mystery.

 

 

Shergar was the most famous, and most valuable, racehorse in the world. The big bay colt with a distinctive white blaze on its face had won the 1981 Derby by a record 10 lengths. He had followed that triumph with successes in the Irish Derby and the King George and stamped himself as one of the all-time greats.
When he retired at the end of that season, racehorse owners paid a staggering £10m for shares in his services impregnating mares.
But after just one year, fate intervened. Kidnappers armed with handguns broke into the Ballymany Stud - owned, like the horse, by the Aga Khan - and forced the head groom, James FitzGerald, to load Shergar into a trailer. FitzGerald and Shergar were then driven off in separate vehicles while FitzGerald's family were held at gunpoint to ensure silence.

Bruce Reynolds, mastermind behind the Great Train Robbery and inspiration for Michael Caine's 'Harry Palmer', dies aged 81

  • Bruce Reynolds robbed £2.6million mail train with 16 accomplices
  • Jailed for 25 years for role and later wrote of experiences in memoir
  • Passed away peacefully in his sleep yesterday morning
  • The haul, which would be worth £40million today, was never fully recovered
  • Reynolds considered inspiration for Caine’s 1965 depiction of fictional spy Harry Palmer in film The Ipcress File

Bruce Reynolds, the crook regarded as the mastermind of the Great Train Robbery, died yesterday aged 81.

His death after a short illness came months before the 50th anniversary of the 1963 heist in which a gang escaped with a then record £2.6million – about £40million in today’s money.

A career criminal who enjoyed the high life and drove an Aston Martin, Reynolds was a notorious jewel thief and housebreaker who formed the 17-strong gang which held up the Royal Mail travelling post office in Buckinghamshire as it ran between Glasgow and London.
