A 21-year-old man from Kent has been charged with the murder of PCSO Julia James, whose body was found on the edge of woodland a fortnight ago. Callum Wheeler, from the village of Aylesham, was arrested on Friday night by detectives investigating the murder. He was held over the weekend and on Sunday police were granted a further extension to continue questioning him. But in a statement issued on Monday night, Kent Police said Mr Wheeler had now been charged with murder and would appear before Medway Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday morning. In a statement, a spokesman for the force said: “Detectives investigating the death of Police Community Support Officer Julia James, have charged Callum Wheeler, 21, from Aylesham with her murder. "Julia, 53, was found deceased next to Akholt Wood in Snowdown just before 4pm on Tuesday, 27 April, 2021. Officers from the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate arrested the 21-year-old on Friday, 7 May, 2021. "On Monday, 10 May, 2021, the Crown Prosecution Service authorised a charge of murder. Mr Wheeler remains in custody and is due to appear via video link at Medway Magistrates' Court on Tuesday, 11 May, 2021." Mr Wheeler was born in South London in March 2000 but moved to the Aylesham area of Kent with his parents and two older brothers several years ago.
A couple out on a run came across a variety of snakes intertwined in branches piled beneath a trail bridge in Cumming, Georgia, on May 6. Lydia du Preez, who shot this footage, told Storyful she and her husband were stretching on Big Creek Greenway when they noticed “slight movement” by the Bethelview Road Trailhead bridge. “We looked more closely and realized there were snakes — actually lots of snakes,” she told Storyful. “There were literally dozens of them slithering around in the swampy area below the bridge in the debris. It looked as if the ground was moving!” In the video, snakes can be seen strewn across the waterway debris basking in the spring sun. Some of the snakes slither and coil around each other. “We were shocked to see so many of them all in one place together, especially at such a popular, heavily trafficked area!” du Preez said. “We’ve been here so many times and have seen an occasional critter on the trail, but we have never seen anything like this before!” Credit: Lydia du Preez via Storyful
