A teenager who murdered two sisters in a ‘Satanic sacrifice’ in north London coldly stared at his bloodied hands after his arrest, a chilling video shows.
Danyal Hussein, 19, stabbed to death Bibaa Henry, 46, and Nicole Smallman, 27, in Fryent Coutry Park in Wembley last year.
The sisters had been celebrating Ms Henry’s birthday when they were attacked and dragged into bushes. Their bodies were found together on June 7 last year.
During the savage slaying he cut his right hand with the 12cm knife which he dropped in the grass.
He attempted to clear the scene and disposed of the sisters’ mobile phones in a pond before returning to his father’s house in Wembley just after 4pm, without his trousers.
During the case officers, who carried out a painstaking search, identified blood stains on the knife, bodies and surrounding scene all linked to the DNA of an unknown male.
The national DNA database failed to identify the sample but on June 30, in a major breakthrough, a DNA familial link was made to Hussein’s father, who had a past caution.
Within an hour and a half, pieces of the puzzle came together with Hussein being identified on CCTV buying knives in Asda and returning home after the murders.
After he was arrested at his home officers took him to a police station where chilling video footage showed him starring at his injuries on his hands, saying nothing.
Following his arrest, Hussein told police he had Asperger’s syndrome and trouble with his memory, then refused to answer questions.
Searches of his bedroom at his mother’s house in south-east London uncovered a book of spells, handwritten demon symbols and the two blood pacts.
The defendant disputed all the evidence against him but declined to go into the witness box.
Hussein had denied two charges of murder and possession of a knife but was found guilty at the Old Bailey on Tuesday.
Olcay Sapanoglu, from the Crown Prosecution Service, said the sisters’ lives were “cruelly cut short in the most horrific of ways”.
She said: “Hussein has shown no remorse throughout these proceedings. He has consistently denied being the person caught on CCTV making his way to and from the park or being the person buying the murder weapon at an Asda supermarket.
“The deaths of Ms Henry and Ms Smallman have devastated their loved ones and left a local community reeling. Our thoughts remain with all those affected.”
He will be sentenced at the same court on September 22.
