The murder of Celine Diaz took place in the early hours of Saturday morning at approximately 0230 hours. Celine Diaz’s body was found on Barnaby Street inside a small side road. Her body was placed inside four huge plastic bin bags. There was no CCTV footage on the road, the cameras had been declared as missing eight days prior to the incident. Police have begun investigating all possible reasons for the CCTV camera no longer functioning.

 

Investigation team report;

After going through Celine’s personal belongings such as: phone records, laptop records and her emails, the investigation team came to a realisation that Celine was popular on internet dating and social media platforms. According to the investigation team, three male names came up enough times for the system to flag their names up; Kareem Abdellah, Jacob Myers and Kyle Heisenberg. The investigation team discovered a diary on her laptop with approximately 162 pages full of information such as: past events, her emotion, her feelings towards people and issues that arise on a day to day basis. After going through the entire 162 pages, the expert psychological team came to a conclusion that Celine felt particular feelings for the three guys mentioned above.

 

Suspect One- Kyle Heisenberg

DOB- 17-10-1991

Place of birth; Great Britain, England, West London, Chelsea.

Kyle Heisenberg is very popular in and around the clubs, along with having plenty of involvement in high profile places such as casinos, celebrity after parties etc. It can be argued that Celine really enjoyed nights out with Kyle and being involved in what could arguable be known as the ‘spotlight’. According to Celine’s diary, Kyle was a huge fan of Celine and he, on several occasions had asked when it would be the correct time for the two to move in together, settle down and begin a family. Coming to the end of the diary, the investigation team realised there was a lot of tension between Kyle and Celine because she was unwilling to ‘tie the knot’ as she calls it on her diary. Celine felt, coming to the end of her diary that it was time to break up the relations with Kyle but she was struggling to find grounds to do so.

 

Suspect Two- Kareem Abdellah

DOB- 01-09-1993

Place of birth; Great Britain, England, East London, Leytonstone

Kareem would be considered as Celine Diaz’s favourite partner whilst they were dating. According to Celine’s diary, she had nothing but good stuff to say about Kareem. It would seem as though they had a very healthy relationship and they were both extremely happy to continue seeing each other and considering it to be a ‘no strings attached’ relationship, as she called it. There was a sense of jealousy from both of them when they would go out and see people they had previously known/been with, Celine felt as though this stimulated the relationship more and made the two admire each other more and more. Kareem is very popular with women and he was often stopped by women whilst Celine was present.

 

Suspect Three- Jacob Myers

DOB- 26-03-1991

Place of Birth; Republic of Ireland, Dublin, Ardcath.

Jacob and Celine both studied English at Bangor University, Wales. Both moved to London after University and lived in separate homes. After going through the entire diary, the crime report team concluded that Jacob and Celine had the most intimate relationship of the three suspects due to the two having more of a friendly relationship. The two really admired their friendship and Celine claims in her diary that they only participated in sexual acts on rare occasions. Jacob is very smooth with words and his ‘poetic tongue’ and soothing voice is what seems to have won her heart. Jacob would often send Celine flowers to her work place, along with writing and reciting poetry to her on a regular basis.

According to the investigation team, Kyle is a suspect due to his unwillingness to accept rejection. According to Celine, there were certain occasions where she felt fear during the last few months of them being together. Kyle could have been considered as threatening towards Celine and by the way she spoke in her diary, it appears he was putting pressure on Celine to do things such as going out on ‘work nights’ and pressurising her to go out on nights she had made other plans.

The investigation team believe Kareem seems the least likely of the three to commit the crime. However, Celine mentions that Kareem had a tendency of becoming jealous when Celine was approached by other men or when they called her phone. Although Celine mentions that it was harmless jealousy, in fact it made her admire him more, the investigation still feels it would sensible to regard Kareem as a suspect.

Jacob and Celine had been friends for over six years, they had been more than friends for periods of the six years they have known each other. The investigation team firmly believe because of the length of time Jacob and Celine had known each other, Jacob should be bought in for questioning and he should be questioned on the relationship the two had together and find out more details on why the two never decided to settle down together after knowing one another for a lengthy period.

 

Kareem’s Statement

Date: 17th May, 2017

Time: 2100 hours

 

INTERVIEWER

Hi Kareem, I’m PC Constable, everything you say is being recorded. Kareem has told us in advance that he does not want a lawyer. Kareem If you require a lawyer, please state now. Otherwise, please describe your relationship with Celine Diaz.

 

KAREEM

No I don’t require a lawyer. Let’s get one thing straight. Celine and I weren’t an item, that’s one thing I’d like to clarify. Celine was dating other guys, and I was aware of that. Don’t get me wrong, I was doing the same thing, and she knew that too. I mean, she was lovely and everything, we connected, she was beautiful, but she wasn’t willing to commit, nor was I. We both were just happy doing what we were doing, having a few drinks, spending a couple nights a week together. She was a freak, believe me she was a freak. The sex was truly amazing and she enjoyed it too, well at least I think she did.

INTERVIEWER

How did you and Celine meet?

KAREEM

She was going out one night and she was stood at a bus stop – so I parked my car and asked her where she was off to, she told me she was going to a mate’s house, so I told her to come with me and I’ll drop her to wherever she wanted to go, it was late and I thought it might be dangerous for her to be travelling on her own.

INTERVIEWER

So, you thought it would be safer to ask a total stranger to get inside your vehicle instead?

KAREEM

Why not, I approached her with respect and I’m sure she though so too, hence her jumping in with me. Moreover, she even asked me where I was off to and I told her I didn’t have any plans so she decided to spend the evening with me instead. We had a nice meal at KFC because that was the only thing open. I dropped her home and she asked me if I wanted to go in. We didn’t have sex, but we did everything else and that was it, I went home and we hit it off from there.

INTERVIEWER

How often did you go out with Celine and how long had the two of you been together?

KAREEM

I already told you, we weren’t together. We had casual sex, we enjoyed each other’s company. We met up a few times a month, like once or twice a week. Like I said, honestly – she was really a freak, whenever she called for me, I was there.

INTERVIEWER

And how long were the two of you together?

KAREEM

Like… I don’t know, a few months.

INTERVIEWER

Can you be more specific?

KAREEM

About six months.

INTERVIEWER

Now that leads to my next question, did you ever go out with Celine and you guys suddenly bumped into somebody she knew from previous, or friends?

KAREEM

Yes, hmph, Celine was very popular with the guys, and I was very popular with the ladies.

INTERVIEWER

And how did that make you feel?

KAREEM

It would make her feel jealous when she saw other women approach me or sometimes look at me as though they wanted me.

INTERVIEWER

I didn’t ask you that question, I asked you how it made you feel?

KAREEM

It didn’t do anything to me, I was always fine with it.

INTERVIEWER

Are you sure about that Kareem?

KAREEM

Umm, Yes- of course I am. How else would it have made me feel?

INTERVIEWER

I’m not too sure about that, a source claims that you were quite the green-eyed type. I hear you used to become extremely jealous when other guys used to hug Celine and hold her hand whilst you were present.

KAREEM

It was harmless, it’s how every guy would react, I mean, she used to react in the same manner, in fact – she used to go home as soon as girls would approach me that I had known from previous.

INTERVIEWER

Oh, so now you’re claiming that it was more than just sex?

KAREEM

No, I didn’t say that – we were never together, it was just a normal reaction a person would have when a somebody they're out with sees another person, it’s totally normal.

INTERVIEWER

Hm, and that’s all it was, just a bit of jealousy, nothing more than that.

KAREEM

Yes, I promise you- I don’t even know why I’m here in the first place.

INTERVIEWER

Fair enough. I just have no idea why you initially said you reacted a though it was nothing in the first place.

KAREEM

Because I didn’t, or don’t see why it’s necessary to mention it. It’s honestly nothing.

INTERVIEWER

Ok, fair enough. This interview is being terminated at 2145.

 

Kyle Heisenberg’s statement.

Date: 18th May, 2017

Time: 1930 hours

INTERVIEWER

This interview is beginning at 19.30 hours, Kyle has told us in advance that he does not require a lawyer. Kyle, if you could just confirm that you do not need a lawyer present for this interview for confirmation.

KYLE

No. the ones they give you for free representation does nobody justice, plus, I have nothing to hide, so no, I don’t need a lawyer mate.

INTERVIEWER

Ok, we can continue, Kyle, firstly – we’d just like to say we are really sorry to hear about your loss. But we must ask you the following questions due to the seriousness of the situation.

KYLE

it’s alright mate, it’s not your fault. I understand you need to do your job.

INTERVIEWER

Thank you for understanding. I can see you’re very upset now so we’ll just get straight to it shall we.

KYLE

Yeah, that’ll be great.

INTERVIEWER

Okay, what was your relationship with Celine like?

KYLE

We had a good relationship, she was amazing, I spent a lot of money on her.

INTERVIEWER

Yes, I understand your very popular around celebrities and nightclubs.

KYLE

Yeah, well I mean, it’s what I enjoy and Celine enjoyed the life style too.

INTERVIEWER

I understand you wanted to make things official with Celine, but she refused to commit to you, how did that make you feel?

KYLE

Well, it’s just part of life isn’t it, you win some, you lose some – plenty more fish in the sea mate.

INTERVIEWER

That’s not what I hear Kyle, I hear you don’t take rejection too well. I hear, you're used to getting things your way, and it seems Celine didn’t seem to allow you to have things your way.

KYLE

What are you trying to imply? Mate, I’ve been getting girls since I was 11, you think one girl can grind my gears. Haha, you must be kidding.

INTERVIEWER

What I’m trying to say is that Celine wasn’t like all your other ‘girlfriends’, she was smart, pretty and funny, and you couldn’t take the fact that she just didn’t want to commit to you. For the first time in your life, you found somebody that you truly adored, but she just didn’t want you in that way.

KYLE

Honestly, I have no clue what you’re on about. Celine was just a girl I used to spend a few boogie nights with, I really enjoyed having her around, that’s why I used to spend so much money on her. It’s nothing more than that, I assure ya’.

INTERVIEWER

There have been claims about you being quite aggressive and threatening towards Celine coming to the end of her life. I hear that she used to feel afraid of you whenever she refused to do as you said.

KYLE

Everything you’re saying is total bullshit, you have no proof. In fact, it feels as though you’re trying to put words into my mouth. Therefore, I’d really like to have a lawyer now in case you guys force me to say something that’s completely not true. I’m not going to say anything until my lawyer arrives. You can terminate this interview now mate.

INTERVIEWER

Hmm, it appears we seem to have hit a nerve Kyle. You’re just digging your grave deeper.

KYLE

Whatever mate, you guys are just fishing.

INTERVIEWER

This interview has been terminated at 20:09 hours.

 

Jacob Myer’s statement

Date: 18th May, 2017

Time: 2100 Hours

 

INTERVIEWER

 

Hi Jacob, everything you're about to say will be recorded for future reference, before we begin this interview, will you be requiring a lawyer?

 

JACOB

 

No, I’ll be fine thank you very much, I’m honestly devastated by the news, what do you guys need me for, I’m more than happy to help with anything.

 

INTERVIEWER

 

Thank you for your cooperation Jacob, we’d like to know what your relationship with Celine was like? When did you guys initially meet?

 

JACOB

 

Celine and I met up in Uni, we were best friends from the moment we met. We studied the same course so we were fairly close.

 

INTERVIEWER

 

Just friends?

 

JACOB

 

Hmph, well we did spend a few nights together, but seriously – just friends. We decided it were best if we kept it that way.

 

INTERVIEWER

 

You guys moved to London at the same time? How did that come about?

 

JACOB

 

Well, we always wanted to move to London after uni, that was always the plan. Initially we were going to move in together, but we both realised that would be very difficult if we ever had any visitors. So, we decided to live apart from each other.

 

INTERVIEWER

 

Wise move, you seem like a real gentleman, especially the way Celine used to speak of you. You were always like her best friend and the guy she could speak to about anything according to her ‘diary’. She also says you were the only person to have known about her diary, seems like you were quite the trusting guy.

 

JACOB

 

She used to speak of her diary a lot. She genuinely was like my best friend. I’d have done anything for her.

 

 

INTERVIEWER

 

You seem like a good person Jacob, I hope you understand the reason why we had to call you in, the closeness of your relationship automatically turns you into a suspect. But is there anything you may know about the death of Celine.

 

JACOB

 

Well, she was seeing two guys at the same time, a guy called Kareem and some scary dude, but she thought he was hot, I wasn’t too sure about him from the offset.

 

INTERVIEWER

 

What makes you say that?

 

JACOB

 

I don’t know, he was different to the other guys she dated. He was extremely rude when he used to speak to her on the phone, so you might want to have a further look into him.

 

INTERVIEWER

 

That’s brilliant, is there anything else that might be able to help us?

 

JACOB

 

Not really, besides the fact that he really hated me with a passion. I’m not too sure why as well.

 

INTERVIEWER

 

That’s brilliant Jacob. Thank you so much for your cooperation Jacob. You’ve been of great assistance to us, we shall definitely mention you helping us when carrying on with our investigation.

 

JACOB

 

Much appreciated. Honestly, I’m just so upset by the news.

 

INTERVIEWER

 

You’ll get through it Jacob, once again, I’m extremely sorry to hear about your loss. this interview has been terminated at 21:26 hours.
