Briton is brutally murdered in Albanian robbery and kidnap plot
Two Albanian teenagers have confessed to brutally killing a British man and throwing his body down a well after luring him to the country in a robbery and kidnap plot.
The suspected murderers were close friends of the victim and frequent guests at his home in the weeks leading up to the murder.
Edward Craythorne, from London, was visiting his mother Sophia and sister Eileen in the northern coastal town of Shenhjin, where they had moved in 2004.
Mr Craythorne, 21, a joiner, was lured by his local friends Mario Pjetrushi, 18, and Arlind Vukaj,19, both from the nearby town of Lezha, who persuaded him to join them for a drive in their black Mercedes so that they could smoke marijuana, police said.
But instead the two took Mr Craythorne to the remote village of Mal, where, according to police, they “massacred” him with knives and stole his gold chain and the keys to his family’s home. They then threw his lifeless body in an abandoned well, where it was discovered weeks later.
Англичанин навещал родственников в Албании. Парочка местных гостеприимных горячих парней предложили ему прокатиться на мерседесе на пикничок и покурить травку. Вскоре его тело с многочисленными ножевыми ранениями было обнаружено в деревенском колодце, без золотых часов и ключей от дома.
