MP stabbed to death in UK: investigation has been entrusted to counterterrorism services

A 25-year-old suspect was arrested at the scene, confirmed Friday evening the local police chief during a press briefing.

The investigation into the murder of British MP David Amess has been entrusted to the anti-terrorist services, police said on Friday evening (October 15). The elected Conservative was stabbed to death at midday during a parliamentary permanence in Leigh-on-Sea, 60 km east of London. A 25-year-old suspect was arrested at the scene, the local police chief confirmed during a press point. Earlier today, law enforcement said they were not looking for “nobody else”, and that a knife had been found there.

David Amess, 69, was a devout Catholic, staunch Brexiter, and great animal advocate. He was one of the few elected officials of the Tories in favor of the ban on fox hunting. Many parliamentarians, all political labels combined, praised his “kindness” after the announcement of his death. The Tory is the second MP killed in five years, following the assassination by a neo-Nazi sympathizer of Labor Europhile MP Jo Cox in 2016, a week before the Brexit referendum.
