This has to be the creepiest news I’ve heard in a long time. Singer Joss Stone was nearly murdered! Two men have been arrested over a plot to kidnap and murder her.
The two suspects, aged 33 and 30 traveled over 200 miles to her home in Devon, South West England from Manchester and were found carrying swords, rope and a body bag when police caught them.
And it gets worse! They found detailed maps and aerial photos of her home too. Did they think they could just murder a famous singer and get away clean?
Detective Inspector Steve Parker told The Sun newspaper: "The men had information and items that lead us to suspect that they may have intended to commit a criminal offence."
Police were initially called to the scene of the alleged plot when neighbors saw two men "acting suspiciously" outside her house. Someone’s getting more than just a fruit basket this year.
Why would anyone want to kill Joss Stone? She’s the most neutral, non-controversial singer around. The girl just sings songs and collects her checks. What’s the world coming to?! Get friendly with your neighbors folks, you never know when you’ll need them!
