Police Catch One Of Britain's Most Wanted Fugitive Killers With Completely New Appearance

Loading…

After escaping from HMP Walton in Liverpool back in February 2017, Walmsley spent 18 months as a fugitive.

Walmsley, who had previously had a shaved head, was almost unrecognisable, having grown a beard and letting his hair grow long.

Appearing at Liverpool Magistrates' Court via video-link today, the killer had shoulder-length brown hair and a full beard.

Walmsley was serving life for murder, but escaped from prison after a visit to Aintree University Hospital. He soon appeared on a Europol most wanted list following fears he'd fled abroad.

A convicted drug dealer, the 29-year-old was one of four men sentenced to life in prison with a minimum term of 30 years for the murder of 33-year-old Anthony Duffy in May 2014. Duffy had been lured to a street near Aintree racecourse in May 2014 and repeatedly stabbed.

At the moment, it's unknown how police found him in Leeds, but numerous public appeals to find him had been launched by police, offering £20,000 in reward money for any tip-off that led to his recapture.
