First picture of killer pharmacist’s ‘soulmate’ – who’s been ‘spoken to’ by cops

This is the first picture of a killer pharmacist and his lover, which has emerged after the murderer was jailed for life for strangling his wife.

Mitesh Patel, 37, described Amit Patel as his "soulmate" and planned a new life in Australia with him.

A court heard the scheming pharmacist had been having a sordid affair with Amit, a doctor, for several years.

And now the photo of them together, taken under a waterfall during a holiday in 2012, has been released.

Teesside Live says the image was found by police in bedroom drawers at the pharmacist’s home, hidden face-down under lining paper.

Detective Chief Inspector Matt Murphy-King, of Cleveland Police, has also said officers have spoken to Amit.

He said: "We have spoken to Amit during the course of the investigation as a witness.

"It would not be proper for me to go into any detail about Amit.

"It would unduly prejudice any further proceedings, should they ever be taken against him."

The court heard Patel and Amit, both of Middlesbrough, Teesside, had regularly been messaging and texting in the days before the murder.

Patel strangled his wife at their marital home and staged a sophisticated break in.


Sentencing today, Mr Justice Goss told the killer: "You have no remorse for your actions.

"Any pity you have is for yourself.

"As the police investigation progressed, the full extent of your attitude and behaviour towards Jessica over the nine years of your marriage was revealed.

"She clearly loved you and was a dutiful wife.

"She wanted nothing more than to have children and live a normal family life.

"The difficulty is that you had no sexual attraction to her; you were attracted to men."
