FACTFILE

 

20th July 1989, at Preston Crown Court he was jailed for seven years after pleading guilty to rape and attempted buggery.

 

Brown, originally from Preston,  is linked to an unsolved murder in the north of England. He is a convicted rapist and is believed to have raped six women and sexually assaulted at least a dozen more.

 

29th August 2007, The first victim was 29 year old Xiao Mei Guo,

a Chinese illegal immigrant DVD seller working on the streets of Whitechapel.

She met Brown and DVD footage showed Brown leading her away, never to be seen again.

 

September 2007, Three weeks later, 24 year-old prostitute Bonnie Barrett vanished from the Commercial Street red-light area, less than half a mile from where Miss Guo went missing

 

6th October 2007, Brown was arrested for the murder of Xiao Mei Guo and charged soon after with both murders.

 

Friday 3rd October 2008, Brown denied murder, but admitted paying both women for sex before they disappeared.

The Jury took just three hours to find him guilty.

Convicted of two murders. It was alleged he killed out of a wish to be famous, and emulate serial Killers like Jack the Ripper.

He had collected books about serial killers and told a friend he was going to be famous.

 

Sentenced to a minimum term of 30 years.

 

The bodies of the two women have never been found, but DIY equipment found in his flat, including a hacksaw and extra-strength bin-bags suggests he may have dismembered the bodies and disposed of the body parts separately.
