Man, 26, arrested after bin bags full of human remains found in Suffolk river

A 26-YEAR-OLD man has been arrested after bin bags full of human remains were found in a Suffolk river.

Suffolk Police today confirmed the man had been arrested over the grim find that was made a year ago.

The suspect is now being quizzed by cops after the find in the River Stour, near Meadow Gate and Croft Bridge.

After the grim discovery in August last year, a post-mortem was unable to determine the cause of death or identification.

However, forensic tests have suggested the victim was an adult male – likely to have been of an athletic or muscular build.

A small amount of additional human remains were found as a result of searches of the river, with DNA testing of these remains confirming that they are from the same person as the original discovery.

This morning, Tuesday 25 May, officers arrested a 26-year-old man from Sudbury in connection with the discovery of the human remains. He was also arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply Class A drugs.

He has been taken to Bury St Edmunds Police Investigation Centre where he will be questioned by detectives.

A second man was arrested at the same time on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of a controlled drug.

He has not been arrested in connection with the discovery of the human remains.

Officers are also currently searching a property in Sudbury following these arrests and this work is expected to continue into tomorrow.

Detectives continue to appeal for anyone who witnessed any suspicious behaviour near to the river in the week preceding the discovery to come forward.

They would also like to hear from anyone who has seen black bin bags in unusual locations, such as ditches or hedgerows.
