Landlord arrested over murder of Bristol woman

The Landlord of Bristol architect Joanna Yeates has been arrested on suspicion of her murder. Chris Jefferies, 65 was arrested at his flat, the floor above Yeates rent flat. Jefferies had previously told police that he believes he saw Yeates leave with two other people on December 17th, the night she disappeared. Yeates body was found on Christmas day by a couple walking their dog.

Avon and Somerset police have confirmed that they have arrested Jefferies and brought him in for questioning. It has been reported that detectives had been watching Jefferies before they made their arrest. The police also removed two cars from the scene. One was a grey Volvo which was parked on the driveway of the property, the other was a silver Chrysler from the street. A resident has confirmed that the Chrysler belongs to Jefferies.

25-year-old Joanna Yeates disappeared on December 17th after leaving a local pub. She was seen in both the Waitrose, a Bargain Booze shop and a Tesco's store, in the later she brought a pizza. At her flat the receipt with the purchase was found but not the pizza or its packaging.

A spokesman for the police released a statement saying "Detectives investigating Joanna's murder are continuing to carry out forensic examinations, and are also continuing to appeal for anyone with any information that can help the inquiry to call the Operation Braid incident room."

Residents of the Clifton area where the murder took place have also commented on the murder and the arrest. A 26-year-old man who wished to remain unnamed said "It's all been pretty scary, especially for my girlfriend as I'm away most of the week so it's been pretty scary for her to be home alone. We chose the area of Clifton to live in because we thought it was safe." He added that he saw Jefferies all the time.

Avon and Somerset Constabulary

Avon & Somerset Constabulary is the territorial police force in England responsible for policing the non-metropolitan county of Somerset, the city & county of Bristol and the unitary authorities of South Gloucestershire, North Somerset and Bath and North East Somerset; before 1996 these districts formed the now-defunct county of Avon, hence the force's name.

Murder of Joanna Yeates

Joanna Clare "Jo" Yeates (1985 – December 2010), was a 25-year-old landscape architect from Hampshire, who went missing on 17 December 2010 in Bristol after an evening out with work colleagues. Her body was subsequently discovered on 25 December in Failand, North Somerset, and analysis showed she had died from strangulation. Her landlord, Chris Jefferies, was arrested five days later on suspicion of murder.

The case has drawn extensive media coverage in the United Kingdom. The murder inquiry, dubbed "Operation Braid", has become one of the largest police investigations in Bristol.


Waitrose is an upmarket chain of supermarkets in the United Kingdom and is the food division of the British retailer and worker co-operative the John Lewis Partnership. As of June 2010, Waitrose had 228 branches across the United Kingdom and a 4.3% share of the market, making it the 6th largest grocery retailer in the UK.

The company attempts to differentiate itself from its competitors by offering high quality food and customer service. As a result, it has the reputation of being more expensive and is popular with the middle classes.

The company has a Royal Warrant to supply groceries, wine and spirits to Queen Elizabeth II. It formerly held a Royal Warrant for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother.

The company has a long term goal of opening 400 branches across the UK by 2017 and doubling its revenue to £8bn by 2016.
