Killer obsessed with Eminem stuffed body in suitcase

ImageAn Eminem impersonator faces life in prison after admitting the murder of a law student he battered over the head and stuffed into a suitcase. Christopher Duncan, 21, who idolised the American rapper and had copycat tattoos of two naked women on his chest, pleaded guilty yesterday to killing Jagdip Najran, 26, at his flat in Bethnal Green, east London, in May last year.

The Old Bailey heard that Ms Najran, who had a crush on Duncan, made a "terrible misjudgment" by going home with him after watching his performance at a karaoke evening at a City pub. Later that night he fractured her skull with a metal baseball bat and shut her in a suitcase, where, medical experts believe, she lay unconscious for at least an hour and a half before dying. The scenario resembles the video of Eminem's song Stan, which features the singer dumping his girlfriend's body in the boot of a car after killing her.
