Victim Jodi Jones
« on: March 04, 2012, 03:53:43 AM »
Jodi Jones was a 14 year-old schoolgirl who was murdered near her home at Easthouses,
Scotland on 30 June 2003.  Jones had gone out to meet her boyfriend, Luke Mitchell, then
also 14.   Her naked body was found six hours later hidden behind a high wall in a wooded
area bordering Roan's Dyke footpath, a well-known local short cut running between the
villages of Easthouses and Newbattle near Edinburgh.

Just a reminder that it has been 9 years since Jodi was murdered on 30 June 2003.

RIP Jodi Jones.




Jodi's grave sits alongside that of her father Jimmy who died in 1998.

Reading some posts on Blue sparked my interest in this case.  My case knowledge is near zero so have no views whatsoever on innocence or guilt of Luke Mitchell but one thing struck me from my limited reading: the murder of Jodi Jones happened 9 days before the 5th anniverary of her father's (Jimmy Jones) suicide.  Is this just a tragic coincidence, event and timing, or are the two events connected?

1. Was Jimmy Jones death definitely suicide?  What were the circumstances?

2. If it was suicide did he have a history of suicide ideation/depression?

3. If yes to 2 above what was the cause(s)?

Reading some of today's posts on Blue it appears Jodie was grounded leading up to the date of the anniversary of her father's death.  Again as per my post above was this a coincidence or something else?

I see the father's (Jimmy Jones) suicide was as a result of hanging from a tree in their garden.

Difficult to see how foul play could be involved with that sort of suicide as surely he would put up a struggle and defensive wounds would be apparent?

Still sad for the surviving family members that such tragedy has befallen them not once but twice  &%+((

It was a suicide brought on by mental illness.

There were no suspicious circumstances.

I agree, the death of father Jimmy in 1998 and daughter Jodi in 2003 was a hard blow for the Jones family.  What I have found very distasteful however were the insinuations and claims by some Luke Mitchell supporters that son Joseph was in some way involved in the murder of his sister Jodi.

What sort of mental illness?  Ie if depression was it non-specific or some specific life event?

What reasons(s) do they have, if any, for making these insinuations and claims?

I had wrongly assumed it was a sexually motivated attack.  Were the knife wounds random/frenzied as say with Rachael Nickell or something else? 

Luke was not charged for months? in the meantime were any females suspected?

I note in one of SL's posts she refers to the perp as being male.  Is there some reason to rule out a female perp?

What sort of category does the murder fall into ie it wasnt sexual or burglary?  Maybe a domestic?  Or a random frenzied murder such as that suffered by Rachael Nickell?

Is there any truth in the deliberate cuts to eyelids?

Were you aware of this Holly?


Jodi Family Suicide; on First Anniversary of Murdered Schoolgirl's Brutal Death, Her Uncle Found Hanged at Home

THE uncle of murdered schoolgirl Jodi Jones has committed suicide - just days after the first anniversary of her death.

Eddie Jones, 54, was found dead at his home.

It is believed the loner, who was not married and had no children, hanged himself.

It is the third tragedy to hit the family in recent years. Jodi's father, postal worker Jimmy Jones, committed suicide six years ago. He, too, was found hanged.

Eddie Jones, who was Jimmy's older brother, died at his home in Dalkeith, Midlothian, on July 2 - two days after the first anniversary of Jodi's murder.

But a source close to the family said his death was not linked to the anniversary, adding that Mr Jones had been experiencing 'personal problems'
