The younger brother of notorious double murderer Andrew Cameron has been jailed for rape and other sick sex offences.

Andrew Cameron remains behind bars for the killing of teenagers Kay Wyllie and Nancy Nicol 30 years ago.

We can now reveal his twisted brother Rodney,39, is now also in jail after being found guilty by a jury.

The middle class pair were brought up in Troon’s exclusive Sarazen Drive before Andrew Camerons’ dreadful crimes ripped the family apart.

He killed Kay,19, in July 1984 by strangling her with her bra and dumping her in a ditch on farmland at Dunure.

The hotelier’s daughter had been driving home in her Mini from her boyfriend’s house near Dundonald when she came across her killer.

Ten months later he strangled Nancy,18, and threw her body into the sea at Little Craigs rocks near Royal Troon Golf Club.

Nancy’s body was found a month later by winkle pickers.

Ironically Andrew Cameron could get out on parole later this year after serving his minimum term of 30 years.

Sources are stunned his brother has now joined him in custody.

One said: “It is shocking that Rodney Cameron also turned into what he did.

“This one family is responsible for an awful lot of heartache.

“They say he was tipped over the edge by what his brother did, and nothing could ever be the same.”

He was jailed for four years at the High Court in Livingston last week.

He was found guilty of raping and assaulting a girl and lewd and libidinous practices towards another.

Rodney Cameron, of Telford Court, Walker Avenue, Barassie, had been remanded in custody since the trial which ended on January 12.

All offences dated to a period which began two years after his brother’s killing spree.

The rape and the lewd assaults happened in Mossblown and Troon between 1987 and June 1994.

Rodney left their luxury mock-Georgian home in Troon with his mother and father for a caravan in Mossblown after Andrew,now 48, was jailed for life.

But he returned to Troon with his mum Ivy after his father Jack died.

They lived in Harbour Road but she died aged 76 two years ago – and he was allowed out in handcuffs to her funeral and visit her grave at Troon Cemetery.

He was just 19 when he was jailed and Ivy could never accept what he did, saying: “I’ll always stand by him. I know he’s a rascal but he would never have harmed anyone.”

It turned out her golden child Rodney – who she was particularly close to – also shattered lives.
