    This is unusual. Parental/familial killing, alas, not so unusual, but a 13 year old involved - so much so as to be arrested, not just questioned?

    Man, she put on a good show with all the screaming about the back door being open.

    What a sin. Murdered by your whole family. Poor little one.

    She may yet be released @Filly. British police can arrest much more easily and quickly than American police (reasonable suspicion - no evidence required). My gut feeling is this is to do with the teenager and an ensuing cover up.

    This was my very first thought when the ages of the arrested were announced.

    Indeed. Pretty unusual to have a sibling and/or a minor arrested, let alone both.

    Hopefully there will be some CCTV evidence. Do we know how far the river is from their home?

    From this map on DM I’d guesstimate about 100 metres (not got google maps to hand to do exact measurements)

    We have no idea who killed him yet though. Nobody has been charged. My first thought was similar to others here, that maybe the parents are covering up for the 13 year old.
    So sad, the poor boy.
