Public warned as ‘master of disguise’ murderer goes on the run

POLICE hunting a murderer have released six different e-fit images of him — because he’s a ‘master of disguise.’

Surrey Police are trying to trace killer Joseph Bagley who is out on licence after serving 41 years for a brutal murder.

The 66-year-old was jailed for life with a minimum term of 20 years in 1978 for the murder of Timothy Hall in Maidenhead, Berkshire.

He went missing from Maidstone, Kent, last month after being released from prison on a supervised life licence in January.

Surrey Police has warned the public not to approach the bearded killer and issued artists’ impressions of six different disguises he could be using.

The images show Bagley with long, medium and no hair, and with and without glasses.

Bagley, has links to Kent, Surrey, Buckinghamshire and Scotland, is described as white, with blue eyes, grey hair and is around 5ft 11in and of medium build.

Detective Inspector Mark Parry said: ‘We believe there to be a strong chance that Joseph Bagley has altered his appearance.

‘The attached images are a forensic artist’s impressions of what he might look like if he has changed his appearance. We believe that this gives the public a variation of his potential appearance.

‘We are pursuing all possible lines of enquiry with regards to his whereabouts, but we need the public’s help to find him.

‘I believe that he could lash out if he feels threatened, or that he is going to be returned to prison, so I am asking the public not to approach him.’
