Psychics provide new clues to killer
with clairvoyant Leoni Hukins, from South Ashford, after she told him that she is regularly in contact with Ashley, a former school friend.
Although unknown to each other, Mr Dighton says both are adamant that Ashley wasn’t killed in woodland behind the Ashford Sainsbury’s store where his body was found.
Mr Dighton said: “Keith Charles told me many things about myself he could not have known as they were things only close family were aware of.
“They included Ashley sometimes winding me up by calling me bonehead, and how my father used to give wicked beatings to me and my brothers and sisters when we were children.
“He also gave me two names involved in the murder.
“I am not prepared to say who they are but I have told police.”
As the Dighton’s are from travelling stock he believes a gipsy was used to lure Ashley to a meeting, where the killer struck.
Mr Dighton, said: “Both psychics told me that he did not die where his body was found and that he had his head cut off after he died.”
Leoni Hukins, 22, from Brookfield Road, was at Christ Church School with Ashley.
Now married with two children and expecting a third, she claims to have a family gift for links with the past.
She said: “Ever since Ashley’s death I have been getting flashbacks and having dreams about his murder. He comes to me to explain what happened and the pictures are vivid.
“I am not a professional, not a fraud and definitely not seeking publicity, but I have sent details to the police because the messages were so strong and the disruption and grief of the family so great that everyone should help to catch this killer.”
Mr Dighton added: “I believe that Ashley was killed somewhere near the bridge and his head put in a drum in concrete and thrown into the Warren lake.
“I have told the police and they say I need to give them exact locations but do think this may be a new line to investigate.”
A Kent Police spokesman said yesterday: “The investigation into the death of Ashley Dighton continues and Kent Police will consider all new information carefully and sensitively.”
