The uncle who murdered a teenage niece is denied release from prison

A killer who murdered his 15-year-old niece has been denied release from prison by the parole board.

Anielle Jones was last seen around 8am on June 18, 2001, leaving her home in East Tilbury, Essex, to catch the bus to school.

Her uncle Stuart Campbell was sentenced to life imprisonment in December 2002 for her kidnapping and murder.

“We can confirm that a parole board panel has declined the release of Stuart Campbell following a paper review,” a parole board spokesman said in comments to The Sun.

The panel also declined to recommend a move to the prison’s opening, the spokesman said.

“The parole board’s decisions focus solely on what risk a prisoner might pose to the public if released and whether that risk is manageable in the community,” the spokesman added.

“A panel will carefully review a variety of evidence, including details of the original crime and any evidence of behavior modification, as well as the damage done and the impact of the crime on victims.

“Probation tests are conducted thoroughly and with the utmost care. Protecting the public is our top priority.”

In 2019, Danielle’s mother, Linda Jones, said she didn’t want Campbell released from prison unless he revealed where her body was.

She said she supports Helen’s law, named after the murdered Helen McCourt, which aims to prevent parole for killers who refuse to reveal the location of their victim’s body.

A spokeswoman for the parole board confirmed in November that Campbell’s case had been referred to her.

In 2017, Essex Police officers excavated some garages near the house where Danielle’s killer once lived and believed her body may have been buried there.

But after a five-day search, no trace of her was found.

The force said at the time: “Unfortunately, we have not been able to end the pain she (Danielle’s family) continues to experience and we have not gotten any closer to knowing where Danielle is.” The uncle who murdered a teenage niece is denied release from prison
