Murder Investigation Reveals the Tragic Fate of Missing Youth in Kochi
Drug Dealing and Financial Dispute Lead to Untimely Demise
Kochi ∙ The Kochi City Police have made a shocking discovery in the case of Jeff John Lewis (27), a Kochi Tevara Perumanur resident who had been missing for the past two years. It has been determined that Jeff was brutally murdered by his own friends at his residence in Cherupunnam, Goa. Anil Chacko (28) from Kottayam Vellur, Stephin Thomas (24), his cousin, and TV Vishnu (25) from Wayanad Mutil North have been apprehended in connection with this heinous crime.
According to the police, the motive behind this gruesome act was rooted in drug dealing and a financial dispute. Kochi City Police Commissioner A. Akbar has revealed that all three individuals arrested in this case have been implicated in other criminal activities, and they have confessed to their involvement in the murder.
A Desperate Mother’s Search Ends in Tragedy
Jeff had disappeared from his home in November 2021, leaving his family devastated. Fearing the worst, his mother, Gladys Lewis, lodged a complaint at the Ernakulam South Police Station. Unfortunately, the initial investigation failed to yield any leads. It has since come to light that Jeff met his untimely demise in Goa, where he was ruthlessly killed by the trio of assailants, who then disposed of his body in a remote area enveloped by dense forests.
The breakthrough in the murder case in Goa emerged through information provided by an individual who had been apprehended in an unrelated case. The authorities, upon cross-checking missing persons records, found Jeff’s name and subsequently reached out to him. The investigative process revolved around analyzing Jeff’s mobile phone data and tracking the suspects’ movements, eventually leading to their identification.
Cracking Down on the Culprits
Anil was the first to be captured, followed by Stephin, and later Vishnu. All three suspects were promptly produced in court and subsequently remanded in custody. To ensure a thorough investigation, a specialized team, headed by South Inspector MS Faisal, will depart for Goa today to undertake further action.
