Daughter-in-law of billionaire Tory donor Lord Ashcroft questioned over death of police officer

THE daughter-in-law of billionaire Tory donor Lord Ashcroft was last night being quizzed in connection with the death of a police officer.

Supt Henry Jemmott’s body was found early yesterday.

Blood was said to have been on Jasmine Ashcroft’s hands.

Her clothes and Mr Jemmott’s revolver were being examined.

Police said the couple knew each other socially in Belize, Central America, where Jasmine and husband Andrew head a luxury hotel company.

Commissioner Chester Williams said his team were focusing on whether the gun shot wound was self inflicted or caused by someone else.

He said married Mr Jemmott had asked for time off for personal reasons in the past few days.

Lord Ashcroft had not replied to requests for comment.
