Disgraced Met Police officers branded murdered Wembley sisters '2 dead birds' after taking sick snaps of entwined bodies

TWO murdered sisters were reportedly described as "two dead birds" by police who photographed their stabbed bodies and shared them with pals on Whatsapp.

Pc Deniz Jaffer, 47, and Pc Jamie Lewis, 33, pleaded guilty yesterday to misconduct in a public office after taking "inappropriate" and "unauthorised" pictures of sisters Bibaa Henry and Nicole Smallman.

The cops had been told to protect the crime scene after Ms Henry, 46, and Ms Smallman, 27, were found dead in bushes at Fryent Country Park in Wembley, north-west London.

Instead, the pair breached a cordon to get closer to the womens' bodies.

After taking a number of pictures, Lewis superimposed his face on to one of the images and, according to the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC), used “degrading and sexist language” to describe the women. 

The Times reports Ms Henry and Ms Smallman were referred to in message exchanges as “two dead birds”.

At a hearing at the Old Bailey yesterday, both officers admitted committing misconduct in a public office between June 7 and June 23 last year.

Lewis took two photos while Jaffer took four – before sending them on to a female colleague also at the scene.

PC Lewis had also shared photos he had taken at the crime scene with a WhatsApp group of 40-plus police officers called the ‘A Team’.

Those pictures did not show the victims.

Following their guilty pleas, the Met said it was taking "immediate steps" to put former PC Jaffer – who has now resigned – and PC Lewis before accelerated misconduct hearings.

Cressida Dick also expressed "deep regret" over the "utterly unprofessional, disrespectful and deeply insensitive" behaviour of the officers involved and issued a fresh apology to the victims' family.

Ms Henry and Ms Smallman's mum Mina Smallman, who sat in court for the hearing, condemned the officers as "Despicable 1 and Despicable 2''.

She said: "Our family's grief was further compounded by the cordon officers who will now be known as Despicable 1 and 2 – any inner strength I had reserved had been torn away."


Meanwhile, IOPC regional director for London, Sal Naseem, described the actions of Pc Jamie Lewis and former officer Deniz Jaffer as "sickening".

He said: "They should have been protecting a crime scene but instead they treated it with contempt and disrespect."

Satanist Danyal Hussein was last week jailed for life for the murders of Bibaa Henry and Nicole Smallman.

Hussein embarked on a "campaign of vengeance" against random women in a failed bid to win the Mega Millions Super Jackpot lottery prize of £321million, a court heard.

Police tracked him down through DNA and uncovered a handwritten pledge to a demonic entity called King Lucifuge Rofocale to kill six women every six months, which was signed in blood.

He had dragged the bodies of Ms Henry and Ms Smallman into bushes and left them with their limbs entwined in a deliberate act to defile them in death.

Hussein denied the killings and declined to give evidence in his trial, but was found guilty two counts of murder and possession of a knife.
