Ashley Russell & Christina Storey
Crimes: Aggravated Assault
So WTF is wrong with Ashley Russell and Christina Storey of England? They are, as my dear mother would say, “whackadoodle”. I figure they’re sadistic POS f*ckturds who decided one day to destroy somebody’s life.
On the evening of June 3, 2014, Ashley Russell of Basildon, and Christina Storey of Wickford, were cruising around in her red car. Ashley Russell was the passenger and Christina Storey was the driver. I believe these two vicious shitstains were looking to do serious damage, probably for shits and giggles.
Now we’re not talking teenagers or even young adults here. They were both in their 30’s. This was no juvenile stunt they were about to pull. It was seriously criminal and planned, and that’s why they had a bottle of acid with them.
Darren Pidgeon, 29, a father of two, was minding his own business, driving his grey Citroen C4 down the A129 where it meets the A127 in Thundersley, Essex. He stopped at an intersection and a red car pulled up next to him. When the lights turned the red car pulled in front of him. No biggie.
Darren Pidgeon continued driving for a few more minutes when he decided to use a cul-de-sac to turn around. The red vehicle pulled up right behind him and blocked his effort to reverse. The evil pair of f*ckturds had their victim where they wanted him, unable to drive away.
Ashley Russell hopped out of the red car and dashed up to the victim. Unfortunately for Darren Pidgeon, he had his car window rolled down. Maybe that was why he was chosen in the first place.
Ashley Russell squirted the acid onto Darren Pigeon, who tried to turn away, and who put his arm up to protect his face. The poor guy began to feel the burning sensation as Ashley Russell, not yet satisfied, punched him in the head.
The acid began eating at Darren Pidgeon’s face, and ran down the side of his body. Naturally he began screaming in agony, and that’s when Ashley Russell ran back to the red car and hopped in. He and Christina Storey drove off, having done irreparable harm to an innocent guy.
Darren Pidgeon, thinking he’d been maced or pepper sprayed, began desperately knocking on doors of the homes. Thankfully somebody opened up for him and the residents gave him water to wash his eyes before the ambulance and police arrived.
Darren Pidgeon suffered serious burns as a result of this heinous crime. He required skin grafts and was in Broomfield hospital for 24 days. The unfortunate man now has a multitude of scars on his face, torso, leg, shoulder and arm.
Ashley Russell and Christina Storey were caught because they were captured on CCTV mere minutes after the attack at a service station nearby. They were arrested the following morning.
Christina Storey told investigators that her passenger wasn’t Ashley Russell. It was a fellow named Ian Sully who asked her to follow Darren Pidgeon’s car. The lying hellbitch went on to tell police that she’d dropped this Ian Sully off before picking up Ashley Russell at the service station.
Christina Storey was charged with one count of applying a corrosive fluid to a person with intent to burn, maim or disfigure, and one count of assisting an offender.

Ashley Russell, being a cowardly, gutless sort of worthless POS, denied assaulting Darren Pidgeon when interviewed by police. He had, however, confided in his lifelong buddy, James Hegarty.
Being a good friend but not a good citizen, James Hegarty kept the knowledge to himself for a year. But then Ashley Russell decided to sleep with the mother of his children. Oooops. That was exceedingly stupid of the sadistic hellbeast to antagonize the one guy who knows his secrets. A pissed-off James Hegarty decided to talk to the police and reveal all about his EX-buddy.
One of the tidbits that James Hegarty divulged was that the acid had been kept in a yellow Jif bottle hidden behind Christina Storey’s refrigerator. So she was definitely an active, knowledgeable partner in their f*ckturdian, hellbeastly scheme.
Ashley Russell and Christina Storey went to trial at Basildon Crown Court in March 2016. The media characterized the attack on Darren Pidgeon as road rage. I don’t agree. They didn’t just “happen” to have a bottle of acid in the car. They planned to select a victim at random, and do major damage to him. Darren Pidgeon had done nothing to provoke their anger.
Both evil, sadistic, nasty turdpiles were found guilty. Ashley Russell was sentenced to 17 years in prison — the poor hellbeasty cried. Awww. Christina Storey only got 8 years in prison.
This case being in Britain naturally means that neither of these two scummy individuals will serve anywhere near their entire sentences. Meantime, Darren Pidgeon is scarred for the rest of his life.
I wish all the best to the victim and his family. I hope learning that his attackers have been incarcerated will result in peace of mind for Darren Pidgeon.
To Ashley Russell and Christina Storey I wish a tough time in prison. They’ll be still young-ish when they get out, and probably will still be outwardly attractive. If there were justice in this world, their faces would wind up as ugly as their souls.
