Foley killer identified, fears capture

British Intelligence has identified the killer of American journalist James Foley. Known as “Jihad John,” the man who appeared on the video with Foley appeared to have a British accent, and after looking at voice prints of possible sympathizers a match was made.

Investigators have been using advanced technology such as voice recognition software to figure out who the man behind the mask is.

The 23-year-old former rapper Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary, according to authorities, is the killer of James Foley.

This West Londoner reportedly gave up his music career to join militants in Syria. Videos about him have been posted on YouTube.

Curiously, one of those videos claims jihadist Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary has been killed in a firefight. However, this video doesn’t actually show his death; the video is clearly an attempt to aid Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary to escape capture and possibly flee to another country.

Now that James Foley’s killer has been identified, he fears capture.

Many jihadists cover their faces to keep their identities hidden from the rest of the world.

Sometimes it’s so that they cannot be punished for crimes, and also, I suspect, to shield their families.
