SUZY LAMPLUGH MURDER SUSPECT JOHN CANNAN BALLOONS TO 20 STONE IN PRISON They call him Johnny Fatpants and prod his belly
EVIL John Cannan – the missing estate agent Suzy Lamplugh murder suspect – has ballooned to a whopping 20 stone in jail, we can reveal.
And his massive weight gain has led to the one-time self-styled ladies’ man now being the butt of jokes from his fellow lags.
Inmates at HMP Full Sutton, where beast Cannan is serving a life sentence as a Category A prisoner, poke his podgy stomach and brand him “Johnny Fatpants”.
Cannan, 64, was back in the headlines this week when police began digging in FAT SHAMING: Ex-lag Liam DIGGING FOR TRUTH: Lamplugh cops in former garden of Cannan’s mother the garden of his mother’s former house in Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands.
It also emerged that seven VHS tapes had been found dumped on a council tip of police interviews with the infamous convict. In them he offers to help the Lamplugh family, and then cruelly withdraws the offer.
Former car salesman Cannan had a reputation as a lothario, trading on his dark good looks.
But former lag Liam Johnson says all that is long gone and he now resembles “a beached whale”.
“They all take the piss out of him and he hates it,” he said.
“What he thinks he used to be is long behind him. He’s not popular on the wings because of his history but the cons are now ganging up on him, and he can’t stand it.
“They call him Johnny Fatpants – and a lot worse – and are forever prodding his huge ‘jelly belly’.
“His only joy in life seems to be crisps and cake and
fizzy drinks, but they’re why he has morphed into such a really fat c***.” Cannan was convicted in July 1988 of murder and sexual offences. He was given three life sentences with a recommendation never to be released for the murder of Shirley Banks in Bristol in October 1987, the attempted kidnapping of Julia Holman, and the 1986 rape of a woman in Reading.
But he also remains the only suspect in the presumed murder of Suzy Lamplugh, who vanished in July 1986 after going to meet a man calling himself “Mr Kipper”.
In November 2002, despite prosecutors claiming there was not enough evidence to charge him, Scotland Yard held a press conference and in a rare move named him as the man they believe murdered Suzy, who was just 25 when she disappeared.
