Fury as stab tragedy raid sus­pect free


FRIENDS of an OAP who stabbed a bur­glar to death are fu­ri­ous be­cause an al­leged ac­com­plice has gone free without charge.

Billy Jeeves, 28, was held 16 days af­ter Richard Os­born-Brooks, 78, fa­tally stabbed trav­eller Henry Vin­cent, 37, at his home.

Po­lice have con­firmed no charges will be filed against Jeeves be­cause of in­suf­fi­cient ev­i­dence.

A mum who lives near the raided home in Hither Green, south-east Lon­don, said: “Richard is in hid­ing. Now one of those ac­cused has walked free when Richard’s life is ru­ined.”

Mar­ried Mr Os­bornBrooks was re­leased without charge over Vin­cent’s killing in April.

Lo­cals have torn down trav­ellers’ flo­ral shrines to Vin­cent next to the house.
