Manslaughter Verdict for Isleworth Death
After being found not guilty of Darryl McClymont's murder
Tuesday saw the conviction of Mohamed Aradour, 25 from Kennington SE11, for the manslaughter of Darryl McClymont in Isleworth on 29 December 2012.
Aradour had previously been found guilty of conspiracy to falsely imprison in 2014. He will be sentenced at the Old Bailey on a date to be confirmed.
Police were called at around midnight on Saturday 29 December 2012 to reports of a man stabbed in Ferney Meade Way, Isleworth. On their arrival they found a member of the public administering first aid to Darryl McClymont, who was lying on the pavement having been assaulted and stabbed in the heart. Witnesses reported hearing a commotion and seeing two men attempting to lift Darryl into a waiting vehicle but then abandoning him and driving away in a silver car, which was followed out of the estate by Mr MClymont's stolen Mazda.
On 1 January 2013, the London Fire Brigade attended Carlyle Road, Addiscombe to deal with a car on fire. This was the stolen Mazda. Whilst at the scene fire officers noticed a man with a petrol canister. The man made off but police officers later searching the scene discovered a receipt for a petrol canister purchased the day before. Subsequent enquiries led detectives to Jermaine Reid, 23 of Peckham, who was convicted of Mr MClymont's manslaughter on 15 November 2013, at the Old Bailey. Convicted alongside him on the same date was Ange Desie Akapea, 23 also of Peckham. Both men were jailed for a total of 29-years.
DCI Diane Tudway of the Homicide and Major Crime Command, said: "None of the men convicted in connection with the death of Darryl MClymont have ever given any indication as to why Darryl was targeted, nor have they ever shown any remorse for his death. I am pleased that Aradour has been convicted today and whilst Darryl's family will take little comfort in this, I hope that it will allow them to move forward with their lives in anyway they can."
On the 15 November 2013, at the Old Bailey Aradour was found not guilty of murder. The jury were unable to reach a decision on a charge of manslaughter. He was convicted of conspiracy to falsely imprison.
