Dear Burgh Angel,
A close associate of Edward Lyons junior was horrifically murdered in broad daylight last Monday morning near his home in Glenshee Street, Tolcross.
Gangster George ‘Goofy’ Docherty is believed to have been wearing a stab proof vest when he was attacked and stabbed ion the legs by several males. The assailants then drove their vehicle over Docherty several times before fleeing the scene and abandoning their vehicle in the Easterhouse area where it was later discovered burnt-out. This was the third attempt on Docherty’s life since he was released from Barlinnie prison in April this year, the last attempt, in June, resulted in him being stabbed 16 times and he subsequently discharged himself from hospital fearing for his own safety.
Docherty hit the headlines when bent lawyer Angela Baillie was jailed this year after she was caught smuggling heroin and other drugs in to Barlinnie prison for Docherty. The supergrass that tipped off the authorities about Docherty’s smuggling operation then claimed that he was hit with an electric cattle prod and abducted by Edward Lyons junior and his gang of thugs. He then claimed that he was tortured and stabbed and that Edward Lyons junior wrote the word ‘Grass’ on his forehead before dumping him on Balmore Road.
Edward Lyons uncle, David Lyons, owns an MOT station and car sales on the Balmore Road that he purchased for convicted drug baron Alex Donnelly. His other uncle Johnny Lyons has recently surrounded his Milton home with state of the art CCTV cameras. Shortly after Docherty was released from prison in April, Edward Lyons junior was shot in the mouth on the doorstep of his mothers’ home in Cathay Street Milton.
His father, also Eddie Lyons, is the boss of the controversial Chirnsyde Community Initiative, which is currently under investigation and had half its funding withheld by Glasgow City Council.
It is believed his funding runs out next week and it is possible that he will be removed from his position.
This possibility is welcomed by many locals who want Lyons out of the Chirnsyde Centre in the interests of children’s safety, as they believe Chirnsyde is being used by Eddie Lyons as a criminal recruitment centre.
