    Agree it certainly shows confidence. And callous indifference.

    Anyone who knows dogs well will equally know that this could essentially be hugely traumatic for the dog. He will have adored his owner and will have clear memories of the attack and of sitting faithfully beside her dead body. They could have used a similar looking Jack Russell for their reconstruction.

    Could be a tongue to the press-this has after all received amazing levels of coverage & police numbers in comparison to most murders, as did the one involving the cop alleged to have killed a woman a while back.

    Most people will probably not even have heard that a woman was found murdered in shrubbery in Romford recently & that a 20 year old man has been charged for her murder-I only became aware of it as it received a very quick 10 second or so mention on the ITV news last week.

    There does need to be some national discussion as to why some lives are deemed by the media to be more worthy than others of coverage & why the coverage of those cases is so entirely out of proportion for extended periods & officers are being dispatched from all over the country in certain cases, while others barely get a mention-even when the circumstances are very similar.

    it just looks like he`s done that walk a few times like he knows where and when to stop and wait by the van without any prompting or guiding from the officers

    He looks very thin even in those bulky clothes!

    There is a thread about it. We have been discussing it and it has been in the press.

    I doubt he's known to the police - I could be totally wrong (I'm not sure if your criminal record for petty crimes as a juvenile gets wiped when you turn 18?) - but I think if he'd committed offences before they probably wouldn't have needed to put his photo all over the press/media to get him identified.
