Cops step up hunt for Jade brother killer
DETECTIVES have renewed appeals in the hunt for the killer of a former pop star’s brother nearly two decades after his death.
John Kennedy, whose younger sibling Jade Jones ( above) was in boyband Damage, died after he was stabbed in a fight in a pub near Shadwell station in east London in 1997.
The 31-year-old electrician was at a lock-in at the Railway Arms in the early hours of February 8 that year, when he met someone he knew who fatally stabbed him.
Det Ch Insp Ken Hughes said: “I firmly believe that there are a number of people who are yet to speak with officers and who have information that will shed light on the events.”
Jones – engaged to former Spice Girl Emma Bunton – said in 2014: “My brother’s killer has got off scotfree. There were nearly 60 people in the pub, it doesn’t make sense noone saw anything.
“I know there’s this code of conduct that you don’t grass, but someone has to step up. It’s been dreadful.”
