Mr Reilly had a history of mental illness and had been "preyed upon" by "radical" Muslims in the area, police officers said.The police have decided to release a picture as they seem baffled too:
Deputy Chief Constable Tony Melville last night launched a plea for information on Mr Reilly's movements and took the unusual step of releasing a picture to assist the investigation.If true, this is made even more wicked by the revelation from a friend:
He said: "Our investigation so far indicates Reilly, who has a history of mental illnesss had adopted the Islamic faith".
"We believe despite his weak and vulnerable illness he was preyed upon, radicalised, and taken advantage of."
“He is a very lonely guy and that is because of his mental illness. He has a big lurcher dog called Gypsy who he adores."I guess his new 'friends' never read him all the Koran...
