    Police found Nazi paraphernalia at the home of the man suspected of killing Jo Cox, a Labour member of the UK Parliament, the Yorkshire Post newspaper reported.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — A Third Reich eagle ornament with a swastika, a book on Holocaust and SS Race Theory And Mate Selection Guidelines were discovered in Thomas Mair's home in West Yorkshire.

    On November 14, prosecutor Richard Whittam said the murder of the politician was premeditated and politically motivated.

    Cox, a Labour parliament member, was stabbed and shot in the street by Mair as she was holding a regular public meeting with constituents in her home town of Birstall in West Yorkshire. The incident occurred on June 16, just several days before the referendum on Brexit.
