It has been nearly two years since the death of James Scott, a man who was found dead at his home in the town of Chislehurst, south-west of Newcastle, and was the first murder victim of the coronavirus pandemic.
The coronavaccine outbreak and the deaths of many other people, including those who had survived previous coronaviruses, have been devastating for many in the community.
In 2017, the family of James were forced to make a difficult decision, and the BPP said they were very grateful to the public for their support and continued to fight the epidemic.
I want to take this opportunity to thank the many people who have taken the time to make contact with us through our website, social media, email and phone lines. “
I am really grateful to all of you for all the messages of support and prayers we have received since the start of the pandemic, and to the BNP and the Newcastle Police for their continuous commitment to keep us all safe and secure.
I want to take this opportunity to thank the many people who have taken the time to make contact with us through our website, social media, email and phone lines.
We know that a lot of people will not have the opportunity to be in the same position as us.
All of us want to thank everyone who has made our journey so far and I know that you will all have the support and encouragement we need to keep fighting the epidemic.”
We have made the difficult decision to make the family and the community available to the police to answer any questions they may have.
Anyone who has been affected by this pandemic or has any information on the circumstances surrounding James Scott’s death can contact Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000 or via the online information service on www.crimestoppers-uk.org.
