Disturbing moment Triple killer walks around with the latest victim just before he rapes and murders a five-month pregnant mother-to-be

This is the disturbing moment when a triple murderer walks his pregnant victim just before raping, murdering and dumping her body on a river.

Anthony Russell, 39, murdered three people in six days – and was convicted of raping his latest victim, who was five months pregnant.

He had previously pleaded guilty to the murders of 58-year-old Julie Williams and her 32-year-old son David Williams at separate homes in Coventry on 25 and 21 October 2020 respectively.

He had also admitted to the October 26 murder of 31-year-old Nicole McGregor, who was found three days later in a wooded area near Leamington Spa.

Following a retrial at Warwick Crown Court, Russell was unanimously found guilty of raping Ms McGregor on Thursday, after just an hour and 23 minutes of jury deliberation.

The 39-year-old attacked her hours after she showed him a picture of her baby scan.

And a chilling CCTV clip showed the killer walking with the pregnant woman just minutes before the heinous attack.

Russell had also told the father-to-be, who was Ms McGregor’s partner, in the hours after her disappearance: “I bet you can’t wait for it to be born” – knowing he had raped and killed her.

The killer strangled Mr Williams with a lanyard and left the body under his bed, where police found it five days later with 87 injuries.

Afterwards, Russell claimed he killed a man who was “having sex with his girlfriend”.

Russell strangled Mr Williams’ mother in a “violent and sustained attack” in which she was shot five times in the head and neck, prosecutors said.

She had 113 separate injuries and was presumably killed because she found out Russell had murdered her son.

CCTV footage of Ms McGregor, who lived in a flat in Leamington, was played to the jury during the trial and showed her walking alongside Russell at 7.45pm on October 26.

During her opening remarks, Prosecutor Zoe Johnson QC said of the footage: “This will be the last time Nicole will be seen alive.

“Just three hours after meeting the accused, Nicole appears to have agreed to go to Newbold Comyn with the accused.

“We suspect the defendant lured Nicole to the Comyn not for sex but more for drugs.

“The defendant murdered Nicole McGregor shortly after this picture was taken, just hours after they met.”

TWISTED RAMPAGE

After the murder, he pretended to be helping Ms McGregor’s partner find her.

The killer eventually became the subject of a nationwide manhunt and fled Leamington by robbing a 78-year-old man’s car.

Russell rang the pensioner’s doorbell and asked for directions, and when the victim was distracted, hit him in the head from behind with a brick, leaving him with a fractured skull and bleeding in the brain.

The killer was arrested on October 30 after police discovered the stolen Ford C-Max parked on a road near Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire, and found Russell in the back seat.

He also strangled Mr Williams with a lanyard and left the body under his bed, where it was found five days later by police with 87 injuries.

Afterwards, Russell claimed he killed a man who was “having sex with his girlfriend”.

Russell strangled Mr Williams’ mother in a “violent and sustained attack” in which she was shot five times in the head and neck, prosecutors said.

She had 113 separate injuries and was presumably killed because she found out Russell had murdered her son.

While being taken into custody, he told officers, “I admit it, I did it.”

Russell, of Riley Square in Coventry, will be sentenced on Friday.
