Several sources are claiming the net may be closing in on the murderer of American journalist James Wright Foley, 40, who was recently beheaded by an ISIS terrorist somewhere in the Middle East, most likely Syria or Iraq.

A five-minute video clip of Foley’s gruesome execution was released on Tuesday.

The leading suspect is a wannabe British rapper from west London known as “L Jinny,” or “Lyricist Jinn,” whose rap tracks were featured on BBC Radio 1, according to a report in the New York Post:

A British rapper whose father is awaiting trial in Manhattan for a pair of US embassy bombings is a leading suspect in the barbaric beheading of American journalist James Foley, it was revealed on Friday.

Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary — who recently tweeted a photo of himself holding up a severed head — was among three Brits identified as possibly being the masked killer known as “John the Beatle.”

Bary, 24, is the son of an Egyptian-born militant who is awaiting trial on terror charges tied to the deadly 1998 bombings of embassies in Kenya and Tanzania.

Also under investigation are the brother of a British doctor once charged with kidnapping two Western war correspondents, and a former gang member who converted to Islam and traveled to Syria, Britain’s Telegraph newspaper reported.

Sources claim Bary was radicalized by fiery Islamic preacher Anjem Choudary in the U.K.

Bary also appeared in music videos posted on YouTube for songs titled “Overdose,” “Flying High” and “Dreamer.”

But he was reportedly radicalized by followers of firebrand ­Islamic preacher Anjem Choudary and walked out of his family’s plush home in the Maida Vale district of London last year, saying he was “leaving everything for the sake of Allah.”

Earlier this month, he was seen in a photo posted to Twitter wearing camouflage clothing and a black balaclava while holding a severed head with his left hand — the same hand “John” is seen using to draw a knife across Foley’s throat in his execution video.

Bary is one of three British jihadis—Abu Hussain Al-Britani, 20, and Abu Abdullah al-Britani, also in his 20’s—whose activities are reportedly being probed by British security services and police as they investigate ISIS terrorists.

Al-Brittani, or al-Britani, is a monicker often used by British terrorists to identify themselves as jihadis.

Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary, who is fighting in Syria under the name Abu Kalashnikov, uploaded a grisly image to Twitter of himself holding a severed human head just weeks before James Foley was beheaded. Bary nonchalantly included the caption: “Chillin’ with my homie or what’s left of him.”  His account has since been suspended.

It has been noted the terrorist clad in black in the gruesome video of James Foley’s beheading was wielding a knife with his left-hand. Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary’s image uploaded to Twitter shows “John” using his left-hand to hold up a severed head in Raqaa (see above).

Raqaa, Syria, was the same place where an Australian boy, whose father had taken the child to fight jihad in Syria, was recently pictured holding up a severed head in what appears to the same location Bary was pictured holding a human head.

Bary is the son of a suspected al-Qaeda terrorist, Adel Abdul Bary, an aide of Osama bin Laden. Last year, Barry left his family’s $1.4 million council home in Maida Vale, west London, to join ISIS in Syria.

The U.K. Express reported:

BRITISH security services were yesterday seeking an east London doctor who they believe might hold the key to identifying “Jihadi John” – the British extremist who beheaded American journalist James Foley this week.

MI5 and MI6 want to speak to Dr Shajul Islam, a 28-year-old NHS-trained medic previously accused of a role in kidnapping journalists in Syria.

He was alleged to have been a key figure in a militant group that abducted British photographer John Cantlie and his Dutch colleague Jeroen Oerlemans.

The pair were held at gunpoint, shackled and blindfolded, and told to prepare to “meet their maker” after straying into a terror camp while covering the civil war in Syria in 2012.

Dr Islam and fellow UK resident Jubayer Chowdhury, 24, were charged in Britain over the claims but were released after prosecutors said the victims were unable to give evidence.

Authorities are also seeking the doctor’s younger brother, Razul, 21, who is believed to have gone to Syria last year, and may be fighting for the Islamic State, known as IS, Isil or Isis.

It is believed Shajul Islam’s younger brother, Razul Islam, then age 19, slipped across the border from Turkey into war-torn Syria in 2012.

The Telegraph reported in November 2013:

Police and security officials fear Razul Islam slipped over the border from Turkey last year and may have joined an extremist group. He is said to have flown to Istanbul weeks before Shajul Islam travelled to Syria, but it is not known whether the pair met there.

In June, “Jihadi John” warned conflict would be coming to the West: “The lions are coming for you filthy kuffs [infidels] … beheadings in your own backyard soon,” according to the U.K. publication The Times.

The Wall Street Journal reported a former French hostage in Syria, Didier François, said he spent several months in captivity with James Foley:

In captivity, Mr. Foley was given tougher treatment than other hostages because insurgents had mined his laptop computer and discovered he had a brother who worked for the U.S. Air Force, Mr. François said.

“One of the last times I saw him before leaving, the group—which has macabre taste—had forced him to pose as if he was being crucified against a wall,” Mr. François said.

Nicolas Hénin, another French reporter who was held hostage in Syria and was detained several months with Mr. Foley, said that the American reporter knew his nationality was a liability in captivity.

Via ABC News Australia:

Foley, who had previously been detained in Libya, was abducted on November 22, 2012 near the city of Binnish in Syria’s Idlib province, as he and his colleagues made their way toward the Turkish border.

Didier Francois, a veteran French war correspondent who was held with Foley and released with three other French hostages in April, said the American “was an extraordinary person with a strong character”.

“He was a pleasant companion in detention because he was solid and collective. He never gave in to the pressure and violence of the kidnappers,” he said.

Francois, who said he shared a cell with Foley beginning in October, said he had not spoken about Foley until now because the kidnappers had threatened to kill the remaining hostages if he did.

James Wright Foley went missing while reporting in Syria two years ago on November 22, 2012. Reports claim Foley was kept in deplorable conditions, subject to mock executions, and viciously beaten by “John.”
