Double murder suspect caught on CCTV walking down street as third body found

Police have released a CCTV image of a wanted man linked to three deaths, showing him walking through the streets of Warwickshire.

Anthony Russell, 38, is suspected of murdering a mother and son in Coventry.

West Midlands Police have launched a search for him after the bodies of Julie and David Williams were discovered at separate flats in Bell Green, Coventry, on Sunday and Monday.

West Midlands Police immediately named Russell, who has links to Coventry and Warwickshire, as the man they believe to be responsible for the killings, reports Coventry Live.

It has also also been revealed that a third body, that of a woman, was found on Newbold Comyn in Leamington at around midday Thursday.

Police say the exact circumstances around the death of the woman in Warwickshire are also still to be established.

However the force said they had information connecting him to the death and were working to establish the link.

The hunt for Russell continues and police say he is believed to be extremely dangerous and should not be approached.

Anyone who sees him is asked not to approach him, but to contact 999 immediately.

Assistant Chief Constable Jayne Meir said: “I can’t stress enough how important it is that we find and arrest Russell, and we really need the public’s help to do that.

“Anyone who knows where he is or sees him should not approach him, but call 999 immediately.

“We know he sometimes sleeps rough and is a drug user.

“It’s early in the investigation, but we have information to suggest that Russell may be linked to the death of the woman found near Leamington today.

“We are working hard to identify her and to find and arrest Russell.”

A 36-year-old man who was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder as part of the ongoing investigation has since been released on bail.
