Police have moved to solve the mystery of how human remains sealed inside a police bag came to be found on the South Wales coast.Oooh! It’s just like ‘Midsomer Murders’!*settles down with bag of popcorn*
The bag containing a human thigh bone was discovered by a dog walker on Sully Island last week.Wow! That was fast! Were they really using evidence bags back then, I mean, clearly they were losing evidence back th…
Rumours quickly spread through the area that police had “lost evidence” relating to a murder case in 2010 – but police said the bone is actually more than 100 years old.
They said they had deliberately buried the bone in a marked bag to prevent “causing alarm”.*boggle*
Police said the bone had previously been found by a member of the public in the same spot in 2010 and was examined./facepalm
Once it was established that the bone was more than 100 years old, it was sent to the coroner – who ordered it be reburied where it was found.
“The South Wales Police tag was left in place to prevent the bone being uncovered again in the future and causing alarm or the necessity of repeating the checking procedure.”That worked well, then?
Why not simply bury it somewhere more appropriate, or cremate the remains?
