Lucy Lowe: Abuse Victim’s Family Claims Police ‘Ignored’ Warnings After Chilling “Be Careful” Threat
The father of Lucy Lowe, a young girl who was murdered in Telford, has claimed that the police ignored his warnings about the abuse of his daughter prior to her death.
Lucy was groomed by Azhar Ali Mehmood, who fathered her first child and later burned her house down, killing Lucy – who was pregnant with her second child, her sister Sarah and her mother Eileen.
He said: “Mehmood had sex with an underage girl. I raised it with police when she died but nothing ever came of it. I’ve never got my head around that. Why has he never been punished for it?
“He might call himself her boyfriend but she was underage. Why weren’t social services involved? This should have raised alarm bells. I believe this is still ongoing.”
Speaking of how his daughter was prior to her death, he said that she had been skipping school and sneaking out of the house, which he later realised was all because the grooming.
Mr Lowe’s comments follow an anonymous threat which the police recieved telling them that the bereaved father should “be careful”.
The threat was sent via a call from a pay-as-you-go phone that was untraceable.
