Dramatic Body Cam Footage Shows Blood-Soaked Murderer Being Captured By Cops

Dramatic Body Cam Footage Shows Blood-Soaked Murderer Being Captured By Cops

Body cams caught the horrifying moment a blood-soaked man was detained by cops after he 'almost decapitated' his victim.

In the footage, captured in Derby in August last year, PC Richard Edge can be seen directing a taser towards Martin McDermott, just moments after he had murdered Leslie Salmon, 44.

As PC Edge approaches the man he can be heard shouting: "Stand still, if you make any threats I will taser you.

"Turn around, walk forward, put your hands on that shed, stand still. If you make any threats to myself or others I will taser you, do you understand?"

He then adds: "I've got a red dot on you and I will taser you. Put your arms to the rear," before ordering his colleague to cuff McDermott, 60.

PC Edge managed to bring in the killer without the use of force and was given a bravery award for his actions.

He says he was called to reports of a stabbing at a bail hostel where he found the victim, arranged for medical help, and then went to look for the killer.

When the killer was apprehended and told that Salmon had died, he 'punched the air in delight' and told officers he was 'proud' of what he had done.

A court was told the grisly details of the case, including how McDermott had attempted to 'parade the victim's head' in what one detective called 'the most gruesome investigation I have led'.

Detective Inspector Gemma Booth of Derbyshire Police said: "The lack of remorse McDermott showed when we arrested him was simply shocking.

Sentencing, Judge Gregory Dickinson QC said: "You told the police you wanted to parade his head around on a pole through the hostel and when the prosecution outlined that element I noticed the wry grin that was on your face."

"We have seen officers who have dealt with the most difficult and traumatic circumstances - to teams of officers who have worked hard to solve problems in communities - to detectives who have solved some of the most horrific crimes.
