    Personally I doubt it.

    I think it is just because the police can't rule out anyone at the moment. As Nicola said, usually they can tell her fairly quickly that it is not her son, but not this time.

    I thought they might find the person who took the bags to the river before actually identifying the person.
    Its almost impossible not to be caught on cctv somewhere days.
    I would love to know what info the police have.
    They are searching the area very thoroughly..i wonder what for exactly?

    This article from the East Anglian Daily Times says: "Bags containing possible leg bones from a single human body were recovered", which makes it sound like there are only a few bones.
    Experts work on DNA profile for human bones in effort to identify victim

    So with the amount of search work being put in its possible they are looking for further remains

    Yes, I would say so, and anything else that might be related - something dropped by whoever left the bags, or something that's blown away, or been moved from where the bones were deposited.

    I am pleased to see that LE and forensics are doing a thorough job.

    They have been searching upstream as far as a weir, which is more remote and accessible without going through town streets, so I wonder if the bones were left upstream without passing CCTV (shopping trolley nearby could be coincidence).

    I can't link because it's FB, but Nicola has confirmed it is not Corrie

    I wonder what it is they have that ruled out Corrie, if they are struggling to ID them. Perhaps they know they are female bones or the height/length rules him out.

    Body of 'athletic murder victim' found dumped in river 'missing some parts'

    "The skeleton of a suspected murder victim found in two bin bags in a river is missing some parts, a detective said as he urged those who find refuse sacks in "unusual circumstances" to come forward."

    "Detective Chief Superintendent Eamonn Bridger said the remains are the body of a man of "athletic or muscular build".

    "Unfortunately we know that it's not a complete body and indeed our current belief is that that individual had been dead for some time before the disposing of in the river and the recovery," he said."

    "He said details of the items recovered could not be disclosed for investigative reasons.The man had been dead for a "minimum of months", Mr Bridger said, adding: "It's too early to say more specifically than that."

    WARNING...not a nice comment

    I wonder if the man was cut up in order to dispose of or if this poor soul was buried and has been for example dug up in parts ..if that makes sense

    Cases like this make me wonder how many victims the perp has, because he (or they) is clearly very dangerous. Hopefully this is solved soon.

    I've been following this thread since the discovery and my first thought was Corrie McKeague or Luke Durbin, however if the police have confidently informed both families it's not either of them, that leads me to suspect the remains are female.
    The most well known female missing person is Claudia Lawrence and although geographically the location doesn't make sense, if the remains have been removed from their original resting place (Which by the sound of it they have been) then they could have come from anywhere in the UK.
     
    Marg from Oz and dotr like this.

    Looks like they've found out it's a male. It doesn't seem like it's anyone obvious, so you could be right about the body coming from elsewhere in the UK.

    Many thanks for sharing, so if Corrie and Luke have been ruled out this may well be someone who hasn't been reported missing

    Okay so the above article says they are still comparing to international databases...
    And they were obviously only able to compare to those in the UK database who have DNA on file so far.

    He could still be someone in the database.

    Or could be not yet reported missing, because it says it's estimated he died within the last few months.

    I think eventually DNA will solve it. My opinion and hopes only.

    Additional human remains linked to bones found in Suffolk river

    "New forensic information has confirmed an additional set of human remains belongs to the same person whose bones were found in a Suffolk river earlier this summer."

    Sudbury 'bag of bones' murder: Remains 'from one victim'

    "Det Ch Supt Eamonn Bridger said a "significant amount of work" had been carried out to "try to identify the victim and also who is responsible for depositing the bags".

    "We expect to receive further forensic test results by early next month, which may help us to determine how long the victim has been deceased," he said.
