October 27, 2020

A MANHUNT has been launched by police to find a man suspected of murdering a mother and her son, who was missing for six days.

Anthony Russell, 28, has been identified as the lead suspect for the double murder of David Williams, 32, and his 58-year-old mother, Julie.


Russell has no fixed address, but is believed to have links to Coventry and is considered extremely "dangerous".

It’s thought he could have travelled down south, possibly to Plymouth, Devon or Cornwall after murdering David and Julie Williams. 

Police were urgently looking for David Williams after his mother, Julie, was found dead at her flat in Riley Square, Coventry on Sunday.

He had been missing for six days before his body was found last night at a flat also in Riley Square.

The cause of both their deaths is yet to be established.

Cops are asking the public for information of Russel's whereabouts, but are asking the public to stay safe and not approach him.

Detective Inspector Jim Mahon, from the West Midlands homicide team, said: “These deaths are very sad and my thoughts are with David and Julie’s family at this difficult time."

“Our investigation continues at significant pace but we need to find Russell as soon as possible. I’m urging anyone with information about where he is to get in touch with us straight away.”

A 36- year-old man has also been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder, he’s currently in custody. 

If you see Russell please call 999.
