'Psychopath' who slaughtered two missing women then torched one in an oil drum in grisly cover up found GUILTY of murder | The Sun

December 1, 2022

A SELF-confessed "psychopath" who slaughtered two women then burned one in an oil drum has been found guilty of murder.

Mark Brown, 41, killed mum-of-three Leah Ware, 33, and Alexandra Morgan, 34, six months apart at Little Bridge Farm in Hastings.

He then set single mum Alexandra alight in an oil drum near a skip where police later discovered burned bone fragments and teeth.

Leah's body has never been found but it is understood Brown also torched her in a grisly plot to cover his tracks.

After killing the mum, he text a pal saying: "Things I've done weigh heavily on my heart, in my head and soul, a psychopath with a conscience. It's a joke really."

The monster has today been convicted of two counts of murder at Hove Crown Court.

Jurors heard how both women worked as sex workers and met Brown through the adultwork.com website.

Leah was a virtual prisoner at his farm and held in a shipping container before she disappeared on May 7, 2021.

Her disappearance came to light after police, who were searching for missing Alexandra, found a drug prescription for Leah in his work van.

While attempting to hide the gruesome crime, Brown had picked up prescriptions for Leah from a Sainsbury's pharmacy.

Chilling footage also showed him withdrawing sums of up to £200 from her bank account while at the supermarket.

At the time, Leah was still receiving benefits that were paid directly into her bank account.

But Brown's web of lies unravelled thanks to a trail of clues Alexandra left for her sons and police that led cops to her murderer.

Alexandra had been due to meet Brown after he offered a highly-paid job at a hotel in Brighton where he worked as security.

Realising the job may not be "above board", she left a note for her son saying "let's go rollerblading" with a box of skates found in his bedroom.

Also in the box was a large sum of cash, a mobile and a handwritten note detailing her plan to meet Brown on November 14, 2021.

The mum additionally left a location, the pin to her mobile and a note saying: "Check postcode TN34 5NY Rock Lane, opposite Bartletts".


She was last seen on CCTV driving up a track in her white Mini Cooper followed by a gold Jaguar, belonging to Brown.

Police later found he had searched "beaten" and "rape" while arranging to meet Alexandra and also watched violent porn.

Brown was arrested on suspicion of Alexandra's murder on November 25.

Five days later, officers discovered burnt-out oil drum with teeth inside at a building site in Sevenoaks, Kent, where Brown had been working.

Hair straighteners and jewellery belonging to Alexandra were discovered in the skip where he had dumped the oil drum.

Asked if he had killed two women, Brown said he could not comment but "it depends on what they find at my yard".

During his evidence, the monster claimed Alexandra had slipped on a tool in his workshop and hit her head.

He claimed he "panicked" as there was a "lot of blood" and told jurors he intended to call 999 but instead chose to cover the death up.
