Demon-obsessed teen convicted of murdering British sisters – .


LONDON, UK – A 19-year-old Briton was convicted on Tuesday of the murder of two sisters while celebrating a birthday in a London park, a crime motivated by the mistaken belief that the murders would help him earn a lottery jackpot.

A London Central Criminal Court jury deliberated for eight hours before finding Danyal Hussein guilty of fatally stabbing Bibaa Henry, 46, and Nicole Smallman, 27, at Fryent Country Park in June 2020.

Prosecutors said Hussein, who did not know the victims, pledged to kill six women every six months, believing he would win the Mega Millions Super Jackpot lottery. They said the suspect was obsessed with demons and spells and had signed a pact in his blood with a mythical figure known as King Lucifuge.

He was found thanks to DNA after cutting himself while attacking the sisters.

The mother of the victims, Mina Smallman, a retired Church of England Archdeacon, criticized the way the police reacted when her daughters were reported missing on the evening of June 6, 2020. She said police officers had shown a lack of urgency after looking at a girl address and seeing her as “a black woman who lives in a council housing estate”.

The family launched their own search and the bodies of the sisters were found in bushes by Nicole Smallman’s boyfriend 36 hours after the murders. Family members found the weapon used in the killings nearby.

UK Police Watchdog is investigating how officers handled the missing persons report. Two police officers were also charged with misconduct in the public service for allegedly sharing photos of the crime scene on WhatsApp.

Outside the courtroom, Mina Smallman said that while she had “made no secret” of her criticism of the London Metropolitan Police, “today I must say I can only congratulate them”.

“This team went heaven and earth to make sure we felt we were supported. This is the kind of police force I believe in and we must work to ensure that we have justice and families are treated with respect.

“Today we remember our daughters as the wonderful, strong women they were, and we hope good will come out of this horrible story,” she said.

After Hussein’s conviction, police revealed that he was sent to a deradicalization program at the age of 15 when his school became concerned about his vulnerability to violent extremism.

Chief Detective Inspector Simon Harding, the lead investigating officer, said Hussein was “a very, very dangerous individual.”

“I firmly believe he would have performed his contract,” said Harding. “He would have continued to kill women, until he killed the first six, if he hadn’t won the lottery by this point – every six months, that’s what he has. said.

“He’s where he should be and will be for a very long time. “

Hussein is due to be sentenced on September 22.
