An attack in the Dorset suburb of Christchurch stunned residents after armed police rushed to the bungalow, smashed the garage door to get inside, and threw smoke grenades into the building before finding the victim’s battered body inside on Tuesday.
Yesterday, his upset mother, Jayne Newey, said her son’s life spiraled out of control after he isolated himself during a pandemic and became addicted to cocaine.

Dorset police received reports of welfare concerns on Tuesday at 7:53 p.m., and armed officers attended the property (pictured) in Christchurch, Dorset.
The mother of two said a reggae musician who worked at Tesco had bought the bungalow for £ 350,000 after moving to Buckinghamshire.
Miss Newey, 64, a care assistant, said she last saw her son on New Year’s Eve when he asked her for money.
She added: “His whole life has been in chaos. He told me that people were banging on his door because of cocaine debts.
According to neighbors, the police kicked out the door of the adjacent garage to get inside and threw smoke grenades into the bungalow. Pictured: Forensic team on site on Wednesday
“It started just before Christmas 2020. He had to pay and I had to give him money for it.
“There were times when you came for £ 100 a day. I wanted to see him. “
A neighbor said, “I heard the helicopter overhead for quite some time, and then the armed police arrived. They threw in a smoke grenade and smashed the garage door. ”
