A British volunteer in Ukraine has been identified as the primary suspect in the murder of a fellow Brit fighting alongside Kiev’s forces who was found dead in June, The Sun claimed on Sunday.
The purported breakthrough was made in the investigation into the death of Jordan Chadwick, 31, an ex-member of the Scots Guards, who was fighting in a unit attached to Ukrainian military intelligence. His corpse was reportedly found in a body of water with his hands tied behind his back. The British government confirmed his death this month after his remains were repatriated.
“His terrified compadres” identified another British fighter as the likely killer to Ukrainian investigators, the report said. It claimed that the water in Chadwick’s lungs did not match that of the pond in which he was found. He was allegedly waterboarded before being killed and dumped.
Chadwick, who served in the British Army from 2011 to 2015, traveled to Ukraine last October to join Kiev’s International Legion. He is one of dozens of Brits who have been killed in the conflict.
