IT was a death as mysterious as it was gruesome – a property tycoon found impaled on spiked railings 60ft beneath his £2million flat. Just eight minutes earlier, Scot Young had conducted a perfectly normal and cheery phone call with his daughter. Property tycoon Scot Young with his girlfriend Noelle Reno, six months before his death His family has always maintained the 52-year-old must have been forced out the window of his fourth floor apartment in Marylebone, central London, in December 2014, and that it was no accident or suicide. And now they could finally get justice. Detectives who led the investigation into the poisoning of ex-Russian double agent Sergei Skripal in Salisbury in March claim to have uncovered new evidence suggesting Scot was targeted by Russian killers. The businessman had at one time hidden away assets in Russia, and had been embroiled in a failed Russian property deal which he claimed left him broke.

His ex-wife Michelle, 54, is furious that it has taken so long, saying: “It’s disgraceful.

The former fashion buyer said: “He had a terrible phobia of heights. “When we were married, whenever we stayed in a hotel he’d never look over the balcony because it petrified him.

Sasha added: “I asked how he was and he said it was all good. “He said he’d call me the next day and that he loved me. I told him I loved him, too. He didn’t sound stressed or agitated.” Meanwhile Michelle added: “I fear there are people involved in this who could be capable of murder, based on the number of worrying deaths of other people linked to Scot, his connections, and because the stakes are so high.” Noelle told an inquest that Scot had called her before his death, saying he intended to take his life Scot was part of a group of friends who called themselves “the Cipriani Five” after the London restaurant where they regularly met. Every one of them died in mysterious circumstances between 2010 and 2014 — with Scot the last to perish.

He had previously survived several assassination attempts, including a bomb in his car that killed his chauffeur. Berezovsky had befriended Scot after he bought a house from him. He is said to have introduced him to the Russian business community, a connection that led to the Cipriani Five’s “Project Moscow”, a property deal Scot claimed left him broke. But his ex-wife believes that Scot’s fortune — which she claims exceeded £770million — was squirrelled away in offshore tax havens, and could have been the motive for his murder. Boris Berezovsky was a Russian engineer who made fortune after fall of Communism She added: “The idea he lost all that is nonsense, it was a sham.” His finances were analysed when the pair began a lengthy and bitter divorce battle in 2006, in which Scot branded Michelle a “greedy cow”. Three years later a judge ordered him to pay his wife £27,500 a month in maintenance. His failure to do so, and his refusal to provide a court with details of his finances, led to a six-month jail term for contempt of court in 2013. A year after his release he was dead.

She explained: “One day, when I was sitting my GCSEs, everything in my life seemed scary. “I felt desperate, suicidal, and I remember sitting crying and telling Dad I’d considered taking my life.   Paul Castle was a tailor’s son who became a property millionaire and played polo with Prince Charles.

He would never have ended his life that way. Nobody wants to die like that, from impalement.

Several men accused of felonies, proceedings for which were continued in recent days, face more court dates in Solano County Superior Court in Fairfield: Bobby Lee White A Fairfield man arrested on suspicion of stealing a truck in early June in Fairfield, a theft that later escalated into a SWAT team deployment, apparently has pleaded no contest to several charges and faces judgment and sentencing in the coming months. Bobby Lee White Jr., 27, who stands accused of a half-dozen or more charges related to the theft and police response, appeared Tuesday morning in Judge Carlos Gutierrez’s courtroom for a readiness conference and to set a preliminary hearing. Court records indicate White waived some of his rights during the proceeding but there was no notation that he pleaded to the charges, although it is likely he did so, since the judge scheduled his judgment and sentencing for 8:30 a.m. Feb. 11 in Department 9. White, who is being held in Solano County Jail on $100,000 bail, was represented by Deputy Public Defender Amyra Cobb-Hampton. The charges leveled against him include stealing a vehicle; assault with a deadly weapon upon a police officer; evading a police officer while driving recklessly; resisting arrest and misdemeanor hit-and-run with property damage; and driving without a license. For the assault charge alone, White faces two to four years in state prison. While in court on June 6, White also faced a probation violation for resisting his arrest as the events unfolded beginning at 9 a.m. June 4. According to a Solano County Sheriff’s Department report, White allegedly hit speeds up to 80 mph in a white Toyota Tacoma during a pursuit, later hit a parked car, then hit a deputy’s vehicle, damaging it, and later sped down Pennsylvania Avenue and onto Texas Street. After stopping his damaged truck on Webster Street, White fled into an upstairs apartment on Delaware Street. The residence was not his, but he apparently knew the person living there. Several police agencies then responded to the area, and deputies deployed SWAT and Crisis Negotiation teams, K-9 officer Grizz, and an armored protection vehicle called The Bear. A four-hour standoff ensued before White surrendered. Some local residents had vacated the area, and two men were detained, one of them White. The stolen Toyota Tacoma was inspected and a training AR-15 rifle and tactical gear were found inside. The items belonged to the truck’s owner. None of the items were taken from the vehicle. Derek E. Dunlap Jr. After a preliminary hearing, a Fairfield transient accused of fatally stabbing a fellow transient during a late-February dispute will face arraignment on the charge next week. Judge John B. Ellis on Tuesday set the newest court time and date for Derek Edward Dunlap Jr. for 8:30 a.m. Dec. 21 in Department 23. Although court records were unclear, Dunlap had earlier faced a mental competency evaluation. A doctor has apparently deemed him competent to stand trial. Dunlap, who is in his mid-20s and being represented by Fairfield criminal defense attorney Salvatore Giambona, is charged with one count of murder with malice aforethought, with a special allegation of torture, an enhancement that could, if he is convicted, result in the death penalty or a prison sentence of life without a chance of parole. Dunlap also faces one charge of brandishing a deadly weapon in a threatening manner. He is being held in Solano County Jail without bail. Dunlap is accused of killing 28-year-old Alexander Lind of Benicia, whose body was found on the morning of Feb. 20 in the 1200 block of Empire Street in Fairfield. Police say the victim was stabbed several times during a dispute. According to police, Dunlap and Lind knew one another. The defendant was arrested without incident on Feb. 21 after a bystander recognized him from a suspect photograph posted online by the Fairfield Police Department. Discussions during Dunlap’s first court date in late February revealed he had a previous conviction out of Santa Cruz County. Kristopher M. Williams A suspect in a fatal Vacaville stabbing on Wednesday returned to court to learn of his new date for a readiness conference and to set a preliminary hearing. Judge William J. Pendergast postponed the same proceedings Tuesday but re-set them for 8:30 a.m. Jan. 29 in Department 11 in the Justice Center. Williams was charged with murder after one of two victims in an Oct. 23 rural Vacaville stabbing died on Oct. 31 in a local hospital and a charge of attempted murder was upgraded to murder. Williams allegedly stabbed Jonathan “Johnny” Russell, 30, of San Francisco, in the neck during the attack. Russell underwent surgery at Kaiser Permanente Vacaville Medical Center, where he later succumbed to his wound. Solano County Sheriff’s records indicate that, around 6:45 p.m. on Oct. 23, deputies responded to a residence in the 5000 block of Fry Road on a report of a stabbing. Deputies found two wounded men, Russell and the home’s resident, an unnamed 31-year-old man. Also found was a 9-year-old girl, the resident’s daughter, reportedly unharmed, in a closet. Officials said Williams was disturbed by a ongoing child custody battle and believed the girl belonged with her mother, who, at the time, was a friend of Williams and was seeking to gain full custody or some custody rights in Solano County Family Court. Williams allegedly entered the Fry Road home without permission. He attempted to take the child, who fought him, Sheriff’s officials said. At some point, Williams reportedly threatened to shoot her if she didn’t leave with him. In the ensuing fight with her father and Russell, Williams allegedly pulled a lock-blade knife, then stabbed Russell in the throat and the child’s dad in the abdomen before fleeing, officials said. Williams was later arrested at his residence in the 600 block of Roscommon Drive. Officials said he told deputies that he knifed the victims in self-defense. He is charged with murder, kidnapping, assault with a deadly weapon, child endangerment and burglary. If convicted, Williams, who has pleaded not guilty to all the charges and remains in Solano County Jail without bail, faces 25 years to life in state prison for the murder charge, and five to nine years for attempted murder.

THERESA MAY’s shock pledge last night to quit before the 2022 Election kick-started an immediate rush to be in pole position to replace her. Tory leadership hopefuls including former Brexit Secretary Dominc Raab and Sajid Javid had stepped up secret canvassing of MPs yesterday as they prepared to pounce if the PM fell. Ex-Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab is front runner to take over from Theresa May And insiders said the talks would only intensify over the coming days given the Parliamentary deadlock over the Brexit deal. Hardline ine Northern Irish DUP boss Arlene Foster publicly played off Tory leadership contenders off against each other yesterday – and lavished praise on Sajid Javid. But Eurosceptics were worried that their vote could be split if Mr Raab, Boris Johnson and David Davis all stood. Sources claim Mr Davis and his long-time apprentice Mr Raab are at loggerheads. Ladbrokes’ Jessica Bridge said: “Betting suggests it’s between Johnson and Raab to step up.” There are also high odds for Boris Johnson to take over as Conservative Party leader Sources also claimed Work and Pensions Secretary Amber Rudd and Home Secretary Sajid Javid had both been privately sounding out supporters for days. Insiders said Ms Rudd had been ringing MPs and claiming that the Tory “women” have to stick together. And MPs were stunned to discover yesterday that Commons Leader Andrea Leadsom was canvassing support on Tuesday night – at the same time Theresa May was first told she was staring down the barrel of a leadership challenge. Insiders claim Amber Rudd could eventually partner Boris Johnson on a joint ticket despite their falling out in the 2016 Referendum campaign. Theresa May has revealed she will step down as Prime Minister before the 2022 election One source said: “Amber’s pretty advanced. She could decide to team up with Boris as they get along well. Or Michael [Gove] could swing in behind her. “But she’ll definitely run.” A source close to Ms Rudd last night said: “Amber fully backs the PM.” Others believed to be in the running include de-facto Deputy PM David Lidington, former Education Secretary Justine Greening and International Development Secretary Penny Mordaunt — who famously appeared in ITV show Splash. Jacob Rees-Mogg is being considered as a possible replacement for the PM Ex-Army officers Tom Tugendhat and Johnny Mercer, entrepreneur Rishi Sunak and arch-Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg cannot be ruled out either. Yesterday DUP leader Arlene Foster, whose MPs prop up Mrs May’s minority government, lavished praise on Mr Javid after a meeting on Tuesday — saying he “understands where we come from” on the controversial Irish backstop. She later appeared on stage with Mr Davis and Mr Raab as they presented their alternative Brexit plans. Ms Foster, whose endorsement could be vital in a leadership election, has also held recent talks with Mr Johnson. Arlene Foster has shows support for Sajid Javid who is also in the running for PM Her endorsement could play a decisive role in a Tory leadership election because her party’s 10 DUP MPs currently prop up Mrs May’s minority government. The backing of the Ulster unionist party would give a candidate a massive boost. Ms Foster gave a damning verdict on Mrs May’s leadership. Asked for her reaction to news of the no confidence vote she said: “I can’t say I’m surprised.” She revealed she met Mr Javid on Tuesday for talks on immigration and also discussed the backstop plan. The DUP leader also held recent talks with Boris Johnson The DUP leader told the Today programme: “I think that he understands where we come from in relation to the backstop. “I think there are many actually who in the Conservative who not only understand but actually support our position in relation to the backstop because they want to see a deal delivering Brexit that works for the entirety of the United Kingdom and that’s very important for me obviously as a unionsist and I think it’s very important for many members of the Conservative party.” She quipped last night that Boris Johnson was “curiously silent” during the PM’s last ditch appeal to the 1922 Committee last night. Home Secretary Sajid Javid and Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt were among those publicly praising the PM yesterday. Arlene Foster claimed Boris Johnson was strangely quiet during Prime Minister’s Questions But allies of both have been working furiously behind the scenes to lay the groundwork for leadership bids. One MP told The Sun yesterday: “So much gushing public support for the Prime Minister – from those who were just 48 hours ago asking us to support them in their leadership bid. “Saj is like a new boy at school – bless him.” The Eurosceptic ERG Tory group were yesterday planning a mini-hustings to pick a preferred candidate to replace Mrs May in the event of a leadership contest. Sajid Javid is also one of the favourites to lead Amber Rudd, who campaigned for Remain in 2016, is also in the line-up to replace Theresa May as Conservative Party leader They were concerned that the Brexit vote could “split” if Boris Johnson stood alongside David Davis and Dominic Raab. Sources claim Mr Davis and his longtime apprentice Mr Raab are at loggerheads over who should run. One said: “Have a look at the spinning in the press over the weekend and these comments that Dom hasn’t been tested yet and that it’s time for an experienced hand. It’s all coming from DD’s camp.” Foreign Secretary, Jeremy Hunt’s odds to become PM sit at 10/1 [bc_video video_id=”5977578998001″ account_id=”5067014667001″ player_id=”default” embed=”in-page” padding_top=”56%” autoplay=”” min_width=”0px” max_width=”640px” width=”100%” height=”100%” caption=”Hunt warns of ‘real risks’ if MPs reject Brexit deal”] David’s the Goliath for Brexit fight By Rod Liddle David Davis’ odds for becoming PM are only 20/1 but announced his plans for a new Brexit deal just hours after the no-confidence vote PERSEVERANCE is an admirable quality. Try, try, try again! We all admire the boxer, flat out on the canvas, who nonetheless staggers to his feet to get another seven shades of **** knocked out of him before the mercy of the bell. DUP leader Arlene Foster, Conservative MP Shailesh Vara and David Davis, attended the launch of A Better Deal in London yesterday But sometimes perseverance is stupid and pointless. And a grave mistake. You might hope that our Prime Minister has learned this now. At long last the spineless monkeys in the Conservative Party have told her to give it a rest. Go and have a lie down somewhere quiet, Theresa. Chill. She still wants to soldier on, banging her head against a brick wall, her brain cells diminishing every time. But she has to go. And surely she will go.

Theresa May has been dealt a bad hand. Truth be told, there is no majority in the House of Commons for ANY Brexit solution. No majority for No Deal. No majority for her deal. No majority for a second referendum. That won’t change simply because the leader changes. But she hasn’t helped herself, either. She called an election last year which wasn’t needed and overnight lost her entire majority. That was dumb. It can be said Theresa May overruled David Davis during his time as Brexit Secretary And for two years she has been criminally inept at dealing with the thuggish bureaucrats of the European Union. She has been perpetually on the back foot. Too ready to agree to each and every concession demanded by these smug pygmies. An extortionate bill for leaving — yep OK, do you want a tip with that? Restrictions upon how we trade, how we regulate our economy, on what we do with our Irish border. Yep, OK, we agree. Perhaps she thought she was being NICE. Well, OK. But the people we’re dealing with aren’t nice. They’re spiteful and vengeful and want to see Britain suffer. Because they know the EU is coming apart at the seams. Just look at France today. Theresa May went ahead with her own agenda during the fight for her version of Brexit regardless of the opinions of the Brexit Secretaries But Theresa May has been out-manoeuvred at every single point. Perhaps worse, she has appointed decent Brexit Secretaries — David Davis and Dominic Raab — and then overruled everything they tried to do. Went behind their backs to push HER agenda. She was for Remain, remember. And as a result the Europeans are crowing with delight. I heard a Latvian MEP the other day instructing us what we must do to strike a deal. Laying down the law. A Latvian! The no confidence vote went in favour of the PM, but she will still step down before the next election We are not going to be told what to do by Latvians. Or people from Luxembourg. This is the United Kingdom. We are a sovereign nation and we will do as we please. We have the fifth largest economy in the world. Latvia doesn’t make the top 100. So get real. And that’s how we should have conducted negotiations from Day One, two years ago. We should have said we would like to strike a nice deal with you. You are our friends and allies. [bc_video video_id=”5978787514001″ account_id=”5067014667001″ player_id=”default” embed=”in-page” padding_top=”56%” autoplay=”” min_width=”0px” max_width=”640px” width=”100%” height=”100%” caption=”Boris Johnson gets asked whether he supported the confidence vote in Theresa May but says he’s getting on his bike “] But don’t worry, we’d also be perfectly happy with no deal. In which case you get no money whatsoever. Kick up a fuss about that and we’ll sue you for reparations from our expenditure in freeing you from tyranny in the Second World War. A fight which bankrupted us and for which we have never been repaid. And further… try to restrict our trade and we’ll sue you again. We don’t want to do all this, but we will if we have to. So cut the bluster, don’t get arsey and let’s see if we can come to some arrangement. Not the one Switzerland, or Norway, or Canada has. A United Kingdom agreement. Commons Leader Andrea Leadsom was canvassing support on Tuesday night One just for us. Comprenez? Verstehen? Capice? Understand? It’s not yet too late to take that very approach over to Brussels. The Remainer MPs back here will try to undermine us at every step — which is one of the problems we’ve had all along. But a new leader with a supportive and united Cabinet might at least proceed with a bit of confidence and chutzpah. Javid is a favourite but some are confused as to what he stands for in his politics Who should it be? Sajid Javid is one of the favourites. But I haven’t got a clue what the bloke stands for, or what he believes in. He would be Maybot Mark II. The Conservative activists would probably like Boris Johnson or Jacob Rees-Mogg. But they couldn’t hold the party together — and the voters, north of Watford, are not terribly keen. Dominic Raab would not be a bad choice — he is a Brexiteer and it MUST be a Brexiteer. But a bit more experience wouldn’t go amiss. We need a clever little bastard who knows his stuff. So, you Tories — get behind David Davis. Cometh the hour, cometh the man. [article-rail-section title=”MOST READ IN NEWS” posts_category=”316″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /] The bell chimed for Theresa May some time ago, in truth. We’re grateful for your efforts, Theresa… but late though it is, we need to change our leader for the fight, a deadly fight. Out with Chamberlain, then, and in with a pocket-sized Churchill. [boxout headline=”THE FAVOURITES TO REPLACE THERESA MAY”]DOMINIC RAAB- ODDS 5/1  THE former Brexit Secretary has been tipped as a future party leader for some time. Mr Raab, 44, who holds a black belt in karate, resigned from the Cabinet last month, saying he could not support the PM’s deal. He argued it may be worse than remaining in the EU and insists we should be willing to pursue a No Deal. In his resignation letter he wrote: “I understand why you have chosen to pursue the deal with the EU on the terms proposed, and I respect the different views held in good faith by all of our colleagues.” Mr Raab, whose Czech-born Jewish father came to Britain in 1938, has been the MP for Esher and Walton since he was elected in 2010. He is married with two kids. PROS: Clear views on Brexit and great insight into the intricacies of the process. CONS: Only served four months in the Cabinet. Leadership rivals claim that he hasn’t been subjected to the full “media glare”. BORIS JOHNSON- ODDS 5/1 OLD Etonian Mr Johnson, a prominent Brexiteer, claims the Prime Minister’s deal will reduce Britain to “colony status”. The ex-Foreign Secretary, a key player in the Leave campaign, quit the Cabinet after the Chequers summit in July. Mr Johnson, 54, wants to withhold the £39billion divorce settlement until the EU negotiates a trade deal. At the weekend he refused to rule out challenging Theresa May for her premiership. Mr Johnson — tipped to succeed David Cameron until he dropped out the leadership race — said the British people should not “underestimate the deep sense of personal responsibility I feel for Brexit”. PROS: Charismatic and articulate with a huge public profile. Darling of powerful Tories. CONS: Critics within the party brand him lazy and say he lacks attention to detail. SAJID JAVID- ODDS 7/1 A EUROSCEPTIC who has urged Tory Remain rebels to drop demands for Britain to stay in the customs union with the EU. Mr Javid, the son of a Pakistani bus driver from Rochdale, has argued for looser post-Brexit restrictions on immigrants. He became the first Home Secretary from an ethnic minority background when he was appointed in April. The 49-year-old did not stand in the 2016 leadership race but has since emerged as one of the favourites in ­Westminster to succeed Theresa May. One of five brothers, Mr Javid, who is married with four children, has said he will back Mrs May but could still throw his hat in the ring if she quits. He was managing director at Deutsche Bank before becoming an MP for Bromsgrove, Worcs, in 2010. PROS: Experienced Cabinet minister with great back story. CONS: Eurosceptic Tories have not forgiven him for coming out for Remain in 2016. Had a rocky spell as Business Secretary. JEREMY HUNT- ODDS 10/1 THE Foreign Secretary is a Brexiteer who has compared the EU to the former USSR. Sources say he was ready last month to urge the PM to pursue a Canada-style free trade deal. He backed Mrs May yesterday as “the best person to make sure we actually leave the EU on March 29”. He is 52 and married with three children. PROS: Former Health Secretary has impressed in the Cabinet. CONS: Not seen as having the X Factor necessary to take on Labour. AMBER RUDD- ODDS 20/1 SHE makes no bones about having campaigned for Remain in 2016 — but has backed the PM’s Brexit deal. The Work and Pensions secretary broke cover at weekend to float the possibility of deal options such as a Norway Plus or EEA membership. She offered the PM her “full support” yesterday. PROS: Formidable. Heavily backed by female Tories. Possible moderating influence on rival wings of party. CONS: Majority in Hastings slashed to 346 in the 2017 snap General Election. DAVID DAVIS- ODDS 20/1 THE arch Eurosceptic unveiled his plans for a new Brexit deal just hours after the no-confidence vote was announced. Mr Davis, 69, who lost out to David Cameron in the 2005 leadership race, wants a Canada-style free trade deal. He quit as Brexit Secretary in July, warning the PM’s proposals would leave the UK in “a weak negotiating position”. PROS: Experienced. Already touted as caretaker chief. CONS: His time may have passed. Faces big challenge in persuading his apprentice Dominic Raab to stand aside.[/boxout] [bc_video video_id=”5978802366001″ account_id=”5067014667001″ player_id=”default” embed=”in-page” padding_top=”56%” autoplay=”” min_width=”0px” max_width=”640px” width=”100%” height=”100%” caption=”Theresa May demands the Conservatives to ‘come together’ and act in the national interest to complete Brexit deal after surviving confidence vote “] GOT a story?
