Mr Jones belongs to a white supremist group, called the Lawton Race Preservation Society. On Monday 3 January he planted a homemade bomb outside a local mosque to promote the beliefs of his group. The bomb was set to denotate at 3 p.m. At 1 p.m. Mr Jones telephoned a warning about the bomb to a local newspaper so that the public could be cleared from the area.
After receiving Mr Jones’ telephone call, the local newspaper contacted police. At 2.30 p.m. PC Fahmida Sugg was erecting a barrier on the road outside the mosque when the bomb unexpectedly denotated. A passer-by, Eoin Watson, was injured in the explosion.
Eoin was rushed to hospital with leg injuries caused by shrapnel from the blast, but the doctor failed to notice that he also had a serious bleed on his brain caused by the explosion until four hours after Eoin arrived at hospital. As a result of Eoin’s brain injury, he died two days later.
A post-mortem indicates that had Eoin received an urgent operation to address the bleeding in his brain it is likely that he would have survived.
