Inside sick Honeytrap plot that left man dead after women seduced and drugged him to steal his Rolex watches | The Sun

A MAN was killed in a sick Honeytrap plot hatched by two women who seduced and drugged him to steal his Rolex watches.

Saul Murray, 33, was found in a pool of blood in the communal entrance to his flat in Luton, Bedfordshire after the conspiracy to rob him took a tragic turn.

Saul was seduced and stripped by Surpreet Dhillon, 36, and Temidayo Awe, 21, who sedated him with date-rape drug GHB (gamma-hydroxybutyrate).

They had met on social media and the two women travelled from London to Luton, along with male accomplices Ikram Affia, 31, and Cleon Brown, 29, late on February 26 2022.

The women met Saul outside his flat while the other pair drove to a drive-thru McDonalds.

Dhillon admitted sharing brandy with Saul and giving him GHB, while swabs taken after the gang were arrested revealed that the trio engaged in sexual activity to some degree.

However, when they failed to knock him out completely, they called in the two men and Affia murdered the helpless victim.

The death was made even more senseless by the fact that the Rolexes turned out to be fake and that Saul had no expensive items in the flat as he had only just begun living there.

CCTV played at the group's trial at Luton Crown Court showed the women, who admitted targeting other men with similar schemes, leaving the flat in the early hours of Sunday 27 February.

They were followed by Brown and Affia, with the latter carrying a large knife.

A post-mortem revealed that dad-of-six Saul bled to death due to a deep stab wound to the thigh which pierced his femoral artery.

The women's DNA was found on the body, while Saul's blood was discovered in the car used to transport them to Luton.

Affia was identified from CCTV due to a distinctive, £1350 Moncler coat that he was wearing both at the scene of the crime and when he was spotted at a London KFC shortly after.

Detectives discovered that only 69 such coats had been sold in the UK.

In a victim personal statement, Saul's father Colin said that he had watched his son die on CCTV.

He added: "It is the last thing I think about before going to sleep and first thing I think about when I wake up."

Affia, was found guilting of murder, while Dhillon, Awe and Brown were convicted of manslaughter.

All four defendants, all from London, were further convicted for conspiring to rob Saul, while Affia was guilty of possessing a knife.

Murderer Affia was handed a life sentence with a minimum term of 25 years, while Brown received 11 year behind bars, Dhillon was sentenced to 10 years and Awe for 7 years.

Judge Michael Simon said Saul's life was "brutally cut short".

He added: "Nothing this court says or does can possibly repair the cavernous void in the hearts and lives of those to whom Saul Murray meant so much."

The judge went on to say that Dhillon lived a "predatory lifestyle" and participating in something " that seemed like an easy money game [but] had the potential to go wrong."

Detective Inspector Dale Mepstead, from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit, speaking after the sentence, said that it was a "planned attack" facilitated by Dhillon.

She added: "It’s obvious from the way the two women used a sedative substance on Mr Murray and the fact Affia was armed with a knife that they were prepared to get what they wanted at any cost – which sadly was Mr Murray’s life.

"I hope that the knowledge that all four people involved in this horrific incident will be locked up for a very long time can bring some justice to Saul’s loved ones."
