I thought it might be useful if I put the wording of the two BTP press statements regarding the suspicious death of a person at Kings Cross on 25th October 2010. A woman was charged with the murder today and has appeared in court. Tonight tragically she has been remanded to a male prison.

My purpose in putting this information out is that I want the trans community to be blaming the right people (ie the courts and prison service).

Press statement one.

A british transport police spokesman said emergency services were

called to kings cross underground station at just after 6.30pm this

evening, monday 25 october, following reports of a person under a

piccadilly line train.

Detectives from british transport police have since launched a murder

investigation following the death of a person, who is yet to be

identified. Officers remain at the scene and are working to recover

the body.

A 34 year old woman from cricklewood was arrested at the scene and has

been taken into custody for questioning.

Detective superintendent ashley croft, senior investigating officer

from btp, said:

"This happened at a busy time during the evening commute and I appeal

to anyone who saw what happened on the east-bound platform of the

piccadilly line to get in contact with us."

He added: "I would like to thank passengers for their patience and

understanding and all london underground staff who assisted the

emergency services in dealing with what happened in a professional and

dignified manner."

Anyone with information should contact btp on 0800 40 50 40.

No formal identification has yet taken place.

A 34-year-old woman, Nina Kanagasingham, of Chidele Rd, Cricklewood has been charged with murder.

They need to blame the media too! See Stephen Whittle's blog entry about Sonia-David (link is on my latest posting) The horrific poison and lies they put out about the victim need to be protested vigorously as well as what has happened to Nina!
