Information is emerging about Khalid Masood the terrorist who was shot dead after murdering several innocent people and attacking the Houses of Parliament in London on Wednesday (22nd March).

His real name is Adrian Elms. He was born in 1964 to a 17-year-old single White mother, who had been impregnated by a Black man, Philip Ajao, apparently of African rather than Caribbean descent (Ajao is a typical Nigerian surname). It appears that his parents subsequently married, and now live in Wales.

From the age of 18 to 38, he was convicted and imprisoned several times for a range of offensives, including violent knife crime. In 2000 he slashed a man's face after the man caught him slashing the seats of his car; and in 2003 he stabbed a man in the nose. 

He appears to have got off lightly in both cases. During one of his short imprisonments he seems to have converted to Islam and taken the name Khalid Masood. His "African heritage" may have been Muslim.

His criminal record seems to have had little negative effect on his marriage, relationship, and career prospects. He worked in a sales job for a chemical company, where it appears he was promoted to a management position. This may have been connected to the fact that he was the "long-time partner" of the company's owner, Jane Harvey, with whom he had two daughters. Also, one year after the 2003 knife attack, he is understood to have married a Muslim woman, Farzana Malik, from whom he is now divorced.

At some point he obtained a TESOL certificate, allowing him to teach English to foreigners. According to a CV obtained by the Sun newspaper, he was working in Saudi Arabia in 2005, teaching workers English at the General Authority of Civil Aviation in Jeddah. 

In 2009, Masood returned from Saudi Arabia to the UK. Then, after a five-month gap, he joined a TEFL college as a “senior English teacher” in the heavily Islamicized town of Luton. 

Over the past five or six years, Masood was constantly on the move. Electoral roll records show him living in heavily Islamic areas. In Luton, where he lived until 2013, it appears he came into contact with Muslim "hate" preacher Anjem Choudary. 

Extreme statements by Masood and his history of violence led to him being placed on a terrorist watch list by security services, but he was later dropped from surveillance. 

In the attack, Massod killed four people and injured 50. The four victims have been identified as Aysha Frade, a college worker in her 40s; Kurt Cochran, 54, from Ohio, USA; Police Constable Keith Palmer, 48; and Leslie Rhodes, a 75-year-old London native.
