Gangsters have put a £250,000 price on the head of the person who killed Olivia Pratt-Korbel. They want him to stay quiet in prison.
The Sun says that Thomas Cashman, who was found guilty of killing a nine-year-old girl in Liverpool and will be sentenced on Monday, is the target of a hit because people are afraid he might help the police after he gets his sentence.
The newspaper said Cashman, who is 34 years old, might be willing to talk about unsolved murders in exchange for better conditions while he is in prison.
It is said that the bounty has been sent to criminals and prisoners via the messaging app Telegram. A source told The Sun that it would cost £250,000 to kill him because he knows everything about everyone.
“His knowledge and testimony could cause a lot of trouble for some very big criminals who don’t want their actions to be looked at.”
On Monday, Cashman will be sentenced for killing Olivia at Manchester Crown Court. He has been linked to two other unsolved murders in Merseyside.
Since then, it has come out that the 34-year-old is thought to be connected to the killings of Nicky Ayers, who was shot in 2010, and Karl Bradley, who was found dead in a back garden in 2013, just a few minutes walk from Olivia’s home.
On April 29, 2010, Mr. Ayers, who was 46 years old, was shot and killed on South Cantril Avenue in West Derby.
Mr. Bradley’s Body Was Found on March 22, 2013
On the morning of March 22, 2013, Mr. Bradley’s body was found in the backyard of a house on Penshaw Close in West Derby. This was three years after he was last seen.
Police think that Mr. Bradley, who was 31 years old, was shot and killed on March 21 night.
Merseyside Police have asked for information about both murders on a regular basis, but neither case has been solved.

A local source said that Cashman had gone to Spain after committing serious crimes in the United States.
Merseyside Police said it “would not be appropriate” to talk about unsolved murders when asked if Cashman would be looked into as a possible suspect in either of the deaths.
A Merseyside Police spokesman said, “However, the Serious Case Review Unit regularly looks at unsolved homicides to see if there is any new information or leads that could help the investigation find the killers.”
On Monday at 2:00 PM, Cashman, who is 34, will get his sentence. After an 18-day trial, he was found guilty of killing Olivia, trying to kill the man he wanted to kill, Joseph Nee, and trying to hurt Cheryl Korbel.
He was also found guilty of two counts of having a gun with the intention of putting people in danger.
