A former suspect in a gang murder who, according to family, became radicalized in prison may have used welfare money to fund his family's journey to Syria to join ISIS.
Shahan Choudhury has since joined radical Islamic cleric Anjem Choudary, The Times of London reports. At least a dozen disciples of Choudary have joined ISIS, despite being on the radar of British police. Choudhury, a London resident, spent 18 months in jail awaiting trial after being charged with the murder of Karl Hamilton in 2005. He was acquitted in 2007.
