UK millionaire wrote murder shopping list, court hears
A millionaire accused of strangling a call-girl allegedly wrote a shopping list of items to use in her murder, a British court was told. Peter Morgan, 54, is accused of murdering 25-year-old Georgina Symonds, whom he paid up to £10,000 (US$12,500) a month to be his personal escort. He also paid for her plastic surgery and rented a bungalow for her close to Newport, south Wales, which he allegedly bugged. Through the listening device Ms Symonds was heard telling her new boyfriend that she planned to leave Morgan and blackmail him. Hours later Morgan drew up a shopping list on his phone, reading: “String, 02 (sim card), poly, glove, snip, handle, tape, Special K, starter, rag, adapter” which were used to kill, conceal and transport the body.
