Cops step up hunt for Jade brother killer

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

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.”
