Cops hunting 'extremely dangerous' double murder suspect who could be behind THIRD killing

COPS hunting an “extremely dangerous” double murder suspect have intensified their desperate search following the discovery of a third body.

Anthony Russell, 38, has been identified as the lead suspect for the murder of David Williams, 32, and his 58-year-old mother, Julie, in Coventry.

And at noon today, cops found a third body 11 miles away in Leamington Spa, Warks.

Cops said they have "information which suggests Russell may be connected to the death".

They had been searching for a missing woman from Warwickshire and today found a body in the town.


Officers have warned that Russell is “extremely dangerous” and “should not be approached”.

Russell has no fixed address, but is believed to have links to Coventry and it is thought he could have travelled down south, possibly to Plymouth, Devon or Cornwall.

Police were urgently looking for David Williams after his mother, Julie, was found dead at her flat in Riley Square, Coventry on Sunday.

David had been missing for six days before his body was found. The cause of both their deaths is yet to be established.
