WATCH: Protest page against Southport murderer’s early release
A Facebook page has been set up in protest of Mitchell Quy’s early release.
Mitchell Quy was jailed for life after he admitted he killed his wife, before cutting up her body as her children slept in a room nearby.
Lynsey Wilson, who had two children, was missing for 18 months before police discovered her torso near a roller-coaster at Southport Pleasureland.
Quy was to serve a minimum of 17 years, meaning he will be eligible for parole in June 2017.
The page states the wish to “do everything we can to stop this man getting out for killing his wife”.
Quy kept up an 18-month facade, inviting journalists into his Birkdale home to talk about how she had “just upped and left”. In reality, he had killed her, dismembered the body and dumped it on wasteland after she threatened to divorce him.
Quy’s brother – Elliot served only four years in prison for helping to dismember and bury her body.
Elliot was approached by his brother the day after Mitchell strangled Lynsey in December, 1998. He turned up at the couple’s home, equipped with a hacksaw, a hammer, a screwdriver and a carpet knife.
Lynsey’s head and hands were said to have been thrown among rubbish destined for the tip and were never recovered.
When Elliot was released in 2008, Lynsey’s father Peter said:”He was jailed for assisting an offender, but there’s assisting an offender who has stolen a car and there’s assisting an offender who has providing the tools to cut up your daughter and helped get rid of the body.
“He should still be in jail.”
