EVIL executioner Jihadi John was reduced to "a greasy spot on the ground" when he was blown apart by a drone missile, it has been revealed.
The twisted terrorist, reportedly responsible for the deaths of at least five western hostages, was killed in November but this is the first time details of his death have been made public.
Colonel Steve Warren from the US military confirmed Jihadi John, real name Mohammed Emwazi, was blasted in a drone strike as he walked along a Syrian street talking on his mobile pone.
Col Warren said: "I watched the video when we killed Jihadi John. We found him when he was alone on the street, when he was talking on the cell phone.
“And when it was all over, he was a greasy spot on the ground."
The military man revealed their man had been walking along the main square by the clock tower in Raqqa as they moved in for the kill.
As he walked towards a parked car, the missile found its target.
But worrying, the colonel said Emwazi, who spoke with a British accent, was "a nobody who became a terrorist celebrity" and his death had not done much to weaken the hold the Islamic State (ISIS), also known as Daesh, has on the city of Raqqa.
Jihadi John, apparently named after Beatles icon John Lennon, is believed to be responsible for the murders of British aid workers David Haines and Alan Henning, US journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff and American hostage Peter Kassig.
Last year the sick killer, who was born in Kuwait and moved to London in 1993, posted a picture of himself online holding the severed head of a soldier, accompanied by the words: "Chillin’ with my homie, or what’s left of him.”
He also appeared in a number of videos where his western victims were beheaded, performing the ritualistic killing himself on at least one occasion.
Only the murderer's eyes were ever visible in the photos and pictures.
An image showing his face was released by ISIS after his death.
When asked why it had taken so long to track down and kill Jihadi John, Col Warren replied: "We have to positively identify the location of these guys, so we want to make sure we can take the strike with the minimal amount of civilian casualties.
"This has been the most precise air campaign in the history of warfare."
