Neighbours of the man named as masked Islamic State killer Jihadi John today described him as “strange and unfriendly.”
Mohammed Emwazi, 27, from west London, is said to be the IS executioner behind a series of gruesome beheadings of hostages in Syria.
Today neighbours of his address in Queen’s Park said he lived with two sisters while his father ran a mini cab firm.
A neighbour said : “They are strange people – not like other people around here. He would not say hello he was unfriendly.”
They described him as wearing western clothes.
Neighbour Elisa Moraise added: “I saw the family last week. The mother wears a hijab.”
He is said by those who knew him to be polite and “had a penchant for wearing stylish clothes while adhering to the tenets of his Islamic faith.”
Another neighbour told the Standard : “They are a Muslim family. They do not mix with us or socialise, or talk to us. Ever since they moved in a while ago they do not say anything to us.”
Another neighbour said she was “gob smacked” to hear that Mohammed had been identified.
The woman, 30, said: “I have not seen him for ages – I knew him from the neighbourhood and always seemed ok – I just cannot believe it. I am in shock to think he is capable of those horrible things.”
