The Finsbury Park terror suspect tried to kill himself six weeks ago by jumping into a river and begged to be sectioned, according to his sister.
Darren Osborne, 47, is accused of ploughing into worshippers in North London in the early hours of Monday morning before jumping out and shouting: ‘I’m going to kill all Muslims – I did my bit’.
Speaking exclusively to MailOnline, his sister Nicola, 50, said Osborne was a deeply troubled individual who apparently tried to steal from his blind 90-year-old great-grandfather.
When he was as young as ten he was reported to police by his own mother who was outraged when she discovered her son had tried to steal his family member’s wallet.
