SUZY LAM­PLUGH MUR­DER SUS­PECT JOHN CAN­NAN BAL­LOONS TO 20 STONE IN PRISON They call him Johnny Fat­pants and prod his belly

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

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.
