Her Last Words To Her Ex-Boyfriend As She Was Stabbed To Death? ‘I Still Love You’

Her Last Words To Her Ex-Boyfriend As She Was Stabbed To Death? ‘I Still Love You’

A 34-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of committing two murders within MINUTES of each other. The victims are identified as Jodie Betteridge, 30, and Lynne Freeman, 46. Both women are said to have a connection to the suspected killer.


From The Dail Mail:

A mother-of-three was stabbed to death in front of her children by her jealous ex-partner as she cried out ‘I love you’, just moments after he killed his new girlfriend, it is claimed.

Jodie Betteridge, 30, and Lynne Freeman, 46, were killed in separate attacks just yards apart in Redcar, Teesside, on Wednesday night.

Ms Betteridge – who neighbours and family members said had split up from the suspect just months ago – was attacked on the doorstep of her home minutes after Ms Freeman was fatally hurt at her nearby bungalow.

Police arrested a 34-year-old man at the scene on suspicion of two counts of murder and today magistrates granted detectives more time to question him.

One of Ms Betteridge’s neighbours told The Sun: ‘She was wearing a blue dressing gown and screaming, “I still love you”,

‘There was blood everywhere. He stabbed her about ten times.’

Her mother, Marina, 49, from Middlesbrough, said Ms Betteridge had split up from her boyfriend a few months ago after 10 years together.

‘She was a beautiful woman and a brilliant mother,’ she said.

A white forensic tent was put up outside Ms Betteridge’s modern terraced house in Byland Close, less than a mile away from the first scene where Ms Freeman was attacked, and blood could be seen dripping from the handle of the door.

It is believed the suspect had been living with Ms Freeman prior to the womens’ deaths.

Police had received their first call at around 8.45pm on Wednesday night and rushed to Ms Freeman’s home on Mapleton Crescent in the seaside town.

Then, at 8.52pm, police received a second report to say that a woman was being violently assaulted on nearby Byland Close – where Ms Betteridge lived.

Both women suffered serious injuries and died.

The suspect is still being questioned at this time.
