SMH at these cats really thinking they could pull this off:
A chilling note found in a car close to Joss Stone’s home allegedly contained details of a plan to ‘find a river to dump her in’. The soul singer, who has an estimated £9million fortune, was apparently the target of a plot to attack and rob her. Other handwritten notes found in the vehicle used the words ‘rob and kill, money in the safe, Joscelyn rob’, it was claimed. Detectives probing the case also apparently found a Samurai sword, knives, a hammer, gloves and balaclavas in the small red vehicle which was parked close to the 24-year-old singer’s £500,000 Devon home.
Maps and aerial photos of the area are said to have been recovered as well. Miss Stone, a good friend of Prince William, uses the gated house in Ashill, near Uffculme, as a UK base when she is not touring or working in the States. Today Junior Bradshaw, 30, and Kevin Liverpool, 33, both from Manchester, were remanded in custody after appearing before Magistrates in Exeter accused of conspiracy to rob and cause grievous bodily harm. The men, who spoke only to confirm their identities during the hearing, will next appear at Exeter Crown Court on July 1.
They arrived at the court casually dressed, Liverpool in a black T-shirt and Bradshaw, who had dreadlocks pulled into short pigtails, wearing a grey sweatshirt.
They were later remanded in custody after a hearing which lasted around 40 minutes. No members of the Stone family were in court for the hearing.
The singer, whose hits include Super Duper Love and Fell In Love With A Boy, was keen to reassure fans after her rural home became the focus of a police investigation involving up to 20 detectives. She said yesterday: ‘I’d like to thank everyone for their concern but I’m absolutely fine and getting on with life as normal while the police continue with their inquiries.’
