Sick Jordan McSweeney boasted of massive knives and posed in wanted posters before murder

Zara Aleena’s evil assassin boasted about having large knives and posed for fake wanted posters before brutally murdering her.

Jordan McSweeney, 29, had previously posted several photos of himself on social media, glamourizing a life of crime.

The twisted thug pleaded guilty to the heinous murder of law graduate Zara today at the Old Bailey.

He’d only been out of jail a few days before committing the crime, and he ambushed the 35-year-old stranger while hiding in the shadows.

Zara was killed yards from her home in Ilford, East London, while returning home from a night out.

McSweeney was caught on CCTV pulling Zara into a driveway and killing her after spotting her.

The brute also stole her mobile phone, keys and handbag, and assaulted her.

Killer McSweeney had formerly shared a photo showing off his enormous collection of knives on Instagram in 2016.

In the carefully constructed photo, he also seemed to put what looked like drugs on weighing scales.

The 29-year-old from Church Elm Lane, Dagenham, east London, also posed up several times in “wanted” filters on social media.

He liked to use several Facebook mock up posters, one of which showed him being “wanted by the FBI” for armed robbery in 2021.

If any social media users thought such posts were harmless at the time, McSweeney went on to brutally murder Zara a year later.

Another image shows the assassin flipping the middle finger and boasting about being born to be an “enforcer.”

The caption reads: “The toughest member of the crew, you make sure everything runs smoothly and any rocks in the road is dealt with swiftly.”

Members of Zara’s family sat in the well of the court as he admitted sexually assaulting and murdering her.

Prosecutor Oliver Glasgow KC had said McSweeney launched an “attack upon a lone female late at night making her way home, a woman who stood no chance”.

At court today, Mr Glasgow added: “She is not the first woman to have attracted the attention of this defendant that night.

“The danger he poses to any woman should he be released on bail.’ McSweeney has previous convictions for failing to surrender in the past, the court heard.

Mr Glasgow told the court McSweeney has 28 previous convictions for 69 offences including burglary, theft of a motor vehicle, driving offences, criminal property, assaults on police and assaults on members of the public.

The prosecutor added that McSweeney is “uniquely unsuitable for bail” while the judge said to the defence advocate that it would be difficult to persuade any court that he should be on bail.

Mrs Justice Cheema-Grubb adjourned sentencing to 14 December at the Old Bailey.

She said: “I will direct that sentencing will take place on 14 December in this case with a whole day set aside.”

The judge told McSweeney: ‘You pleaded guilty to very serious matters and I am sure you appreciate I have to sentence you.

“You know the kind of sentence that you will receive but I will listen very carefully to the Crown’s opening of the case, any other material that is put before me and any submissions on your behalf.

“So it is in your best interests to keep cooperating with those representing you.”

Zara was a young lawyer who had recently begun working at the Royal Courts of Justice.

Her death sparked outrage in the aftermath of the strange murders of Sabina Nessa and Sarah Everard as they walked home in London.
