Local Murder -Very Shocking

When I first heard about this I assumed that I had misheard or it was some kind of sick joke.

Quote:
A police officer is reported to have discovered human remains in a suitcase being carried by a couple in England.

Two people have been arrested on suspicion of murder after the discovery on Tuesday night and a large area on the outskirts of Coleford in Gloucestershire remains cordoned off.

It seems that the officer saw the couple, thought their actions were suspicious and then made a grisly discovery.

Heh. I read the thread title and immediately felt guilty for thinking of an electrocution joke.

But yes, the actual story is pretty shocking.

Apparently the cordon was put up because more(?) remains were found. The article doesn't explain how it's connected to the couple carrying the body in a suitcase. The impression given is that the couple has transported more than one dead body to that area for disposal.

I wonder if the suitcase has been their transport method all along, or if it's a recent improvement to their previous method.

I also wonder if these killings were personal or professional.

Minor detail that I find engaging: The reporters got a fairly bland statement from the police, so they tried to get more details from local community members. But everyone they talked to could only say, "I dunno, the road was closed when I got here."
