Just days after two men were arrested on suspicion of attempting to rob and attack soul singer Joss Stone, new details of her murder plot are unraveled. Police have found handwritten notes in a car used by the suspects, and one of the scribbles allegedly uncovered details of a plan to "find a river to dump her in".
A separate note is understood to have said, "Find Joss Stone's address on Google," and another one, which mentioned Joss' full first name, allegedly contained words that read, "Rob and kill Jocelyn, money in safe." The instructions were reportedly discovered along with a Samurai sword, knives, hammers, maps and balaclavas.
30-year-old Junior Bradshaw and 33-year-old Kevin Liverpool have been charged with conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm and conspiracy to commit robbery following their arrest near Joss' home. They appeared before Magistrates in Exeter, Southern England on Thursday, June 16, and were remanded in custody until a preliminary hearing at Exeter Crown Court on July 1.
Joss has since the men's arrest released a statement. "I'd like to thank everyone for their concern," she said, "but I'm absolutely fine and getting on with life as normal while the police continue their enquiries." She also assured she is fine, telling Spinner, "I'm all good. People are crazy, but that's OK. Hey, I'm carrying on: I paint my bathroom. I bake my cakes. All is well."
