Heinous killers stripped the father of five naked and “tortured” him in the industrial zone

TWO men face jail after stripping naked and brutally beating to death a father of five.

The callous Mark Campbell, 40, and Simmion Goldbourne, 28, launched the horrifying attack on Carl Woodall, 44, leaving him with more than 140 injuries in a two-hour attack.

In the attack on June 28 last year in an industrial area in the Black Country, the two repeatedly hit the mechanic’s body with weapons.

His battered body – attacked with a machete, large knife and wooden handle – was discovered by his son and girlfriend.

Campbell and Golbourne were convicted of murder after the jury debated the verdict for more than three hours.

A third man, James McGhee, 28, was acquitted of the murder of Mr Woodall but found guilty of manslaughter.

All three Nottingham men are due to be sentenced at Wolverhampton Crown Court on Friday.

Campbell and Goldbourne face life behind bars.

The three men had plotted to steal drugs they believed were secretly hidden in the unit Mr Woodall had rented.

A self-confessed drug dealer, Campbell had met Mr Woodall’s stepsons, Cieran and Joshua, when they all spent their time at HMP Birmingham in 2018.

He claimed he started dealing drugs for Cieran after leaving prison and that drugs were being stockpiled at Mr Woodall’s unit at Rowley Regis in the West Midlands.

The trial, which began on May 4, heard a silver Nissan Qashqai driven by McGhee, 28, being caught by CCTV on Doulton Road.

Passengers Goldbourne, 28, and Campbell, 39, were in the car with McGhee at 1:15 a.m.

A few minutes later, Goldbourne and Campbell were caught looking around the site and checking access before returning to the car.

The three men then made their way to Mr. Woodall’s trailer before Goldbourne and Campbell scaled a metal fence and entered the industrial unit’s yard.

McGhee then reportedly walked back to the car.

Goldbourne and Campbell entered the caravan where the first attack took place before Mr Woodall was taken to the industrial plant where he was again ‘severely’ beaten.

Getaway driver McGhee stayed at the car for two hours until the other men returned at around 4:13 a.m.


They took £8,000 of “blood money” and tobacco.

The jury heard that Goldbourne received about £3,000; McGhee £2,400; and Campbell about £2,600.

Campbell, on the witness stand, told the court he was involved in the brothers’ drug trafficking activities and was even placed in shelters by Cieran so he could sell drugs in the area.

He added that he once stole half a kilogram of cocaine from Cieran’s house.

Campbell recalled visiting the Rowley Regis industrial estate several times, but said he would stay outside while Cieran collected drugs stored there.

He told the jury he had met Goldbourne at a party and the pair arranged to steal drugs from the unit before McGhee was recruited to drive the trio.

All three men had denied murder before the trial.

Following the verdict, Mr Woodall’s son Ryan, 22, who found his father’s body, told the Express and Star: I will never be able to hold or see my father again. I feel a whole range of emotions, anger, excitement and frustration. I hope they never get out of their heads what they did.”
