You are passing some time on the beach with your kids. You hear them scream. You run to each other. They insist they have just found a head in "that bag over there".
One would surely be inclined to think they were imagining things or making it up. It was after all April 1st.
So may be you tell them to not be so silly and go back to building the sandcastle?
But they insist...plus they are presumably throwing up all over the place.
Do you risk a peek? You wouldn't want to but could you risk calling the police without checking first?
So glad I wasn't the parent concerned. (And how many sleepless nights are they going to have with those little girls from now on?)
I am also grateful that when Reidski and I were on the beach on Tuesday the only dead body we found belonged to a dogfish. (The poor thing.)
Det Ch Insp McMillan ....said the case was still not being treated as murder.
Suicide by wrapping own head in plastic bag and then cutting it off with the slight disadvantage of having already cut off own hands then?
