Mourners pay respects at funeral to Brit mum accused of murdering toddler son

Mourners paid their respects to a mum suspected of murdering her two-year-old son – who died just days after being arrested in Finland for the killing.

Family and friends attended a brief service at Stoke’s City Central Mosque for Ayesha Ali, 35, who passed away in hospital last month after little Adam died in her apartment in Espoo.

Police found Adam’s body and Ayesha with an injury to her neck in the town 13 miles west of the capital Helsinki.

Cops smashed down the flat’s door after Ayesha allegedly told pals she was about to kill herself.

It was claimed when Ayesha was led away from the third-floor flat, she repeatedly said: “I’ve killed my son, I’ve killed my son.”

A neighbour, who spoke to the publication on condition of anonymity, said she became aware of what happened when a woman started shouting in English from outside the flats.

She said: “There was a friend of her looking up at her apartment while shouting, ‘Ayesha! We’re here to help you. We can talk about’.

“She was shouting back that she wanted to die. The woman was let into the building by another neighbour and I could hear her saying she had already called the police and they were on the way.

“When the police arrived, they quickly got inside the building and into the flat. They attempted to do CPR on the boy. His mum had been saying, ‘He turned blue and is very cold’.”

Ayesha, originally from Newcastle-under-Lyme, worked as a freelance English teacher after she moved to Finland with little Adam and his dad Adane Osmane in January last year.

But, her and Adane’s eight-year-long marriage fell apart shortly after they moved, and he launched a child custody battle shortly afterwards.

Court documents obtained by the Sunday Mirror showed the custody battle kicked off and that Ayesha had moved into a homeless shelter.

Documents also revealed Adam stayed with his mum every Sunday to Tuesday.

While Finnish police issued a statement claiming Ayesha had admitted killing Adam, her dad said it was an “accidental death”.

He continued: “She hasn’t admitted murder.”
