Warrior Soul Drummer Murdered

According to BBC News, two men and a woman from Essex have been charged with the murder of former Warrior Soul drummer Mark Evans, whose burnt body was found in a wheelie bin in an east London car park last week. Evans, 48, from Dagenham, was strangled and transported in a wheelie bin to Electric Parade, Ilford. Anthony Aldis, 38, of Goodmayes, Steven Fullerton, 28, of Gants Hill, and Leanne Terry, 26, of Seven Kings, have all been charged with his murder. All three were scheduled to appear at Waltham Forest magistrates court on Saturday (January 29). They also face charges of perverting the course of justice. A member of the public discovered the burning body on Wednesday morning (26th) after finding his garden fence on fire. Anyone wishing to send a card for Mark's family in London can do so at this address (cards will be forwarded to the family):
