Alleged Miscarriages of Justice > Luke Mitchell and the murder of his teenage girfriend Jodi Jones. Case currently being reviewed by the SCCRC. Confidential Hotline No 07092 984231.

Victim Jodi Jones

(1/4) > >>

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.



Holly Goodhead:
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)?
