Officers trying to identify the human remains discovered on Weston Shore

Daily Echo: Who do body parts washed up on a Hampshire beach belong to? Who do body parts washed up on a Hampshire beach belong to?

POLICE were today trying to solve the mystery behind body parts which were discovered washed up on a Hampshire beach.

The painstaking investigation was continuing as officers worked to identify the human remains, which were found on Weston Shore in Southampton yesterday morning.

The gruesome discovery was made by a dog walker, at around 8.25am, to the side of Southampton Sailing Club, off Victoria Road.

Late yesterday afternoon a post mortem was getting underway as well as complex DNA testing to try and identify the body parts, which police were unable to distinguish as male or female.

Following the discovery officers sealed off a stretch of Weston Shore, including the sailing club, for several hours, as they combed the area for any further evidence that may help them solve the mystery.

Forensic teams in white suits could be seen scouring the cordoned off shoreline, which was surrounded by up to ten police vehicles for most of the morning.

The body parts were then removed from the scene and taken to hospital ahead of the examination.

Those using the sailing club during the morning were allowed in and out of the building, but members of the public walking their dogs, or enjoying a morning walk were stopped from stepping foot on the scene.

The cordon was lifted about two and a half hours later, leaving no evidence of what had happened there in the morning, apart from one small piece of police tape attached to a lamppost.

Families enjoying an afternoon walk along the coastline and those seeing to their boats in the yard were unaware of the drama that had unfolded just hours before.

Inquiries by the police were being focused on establishing the identity of the deceased, and checking local missing persons records.

A Hampshire police spokesman said: “Whist there is nothing at this time to indicate this is suspicious, officers will keep an open mind until results of the post mortem are known and whilst inquiries continue.”

You are an example of what happens when the government makes cut-backs on the care for people with mental health problems.

It could be a suicide off the bridge that has proceeded to get hit by a boat. Gruesome but plausible. For the persons family I hope they manage to work out who it is.

You wish he was dead, because he made a silly comment, then act like you're some humanitarian? Brilliant.

Joking about this person's death is pretty tasteless, but wishing someone to be dead doesn't seem to be any better. If you want to judge someone for a joke, then I think you need to raise the standard of your own behaviour.

Read what I wrote.

Where did I say that I wished that he/she were dead?

I stated that others may have that wish.

"If you want to judge some for a joke......." If that was your idea of a joke, then you have as strange a sense of humour as the person who made the original post, and it is not one that I share.

If you consider that I need to raise my standard of behaviour, I suggest that you review your sense of humour.

Come off it. We all know exactly what you meant. Making passive-aggressive "other people may think" comments fools nobody. If you're going to make nasty comments to someone, at least have the courage to stand by them, not try to weasel out of it on a semantic technicality.

Whether or not I, you or anyone else finds it funny doesn't change the fact that it was an obvious joke. The poster wasn't really claiming that it was his body parts that were found...

So you found the joke to be tasteless and I'm sure you're not the only one. However, it's also pretty tasteless to wish death on someone and, no, you don't get out of that by saying that it's some hypothetical 'other people' who wish the poster dead. You don't get to hide behind some group of silent other posters who you can claim to be speaking on behalf of.

It do happen, but not normally this far up a tidal river, a body can break up in the tidal currents or when its getting close to shallow water, whats being left out is how old they think these body parts are

You have no idea what you're talking about. It's not a hacking script, it's really rather simpler than that. Anyone with the teeniest knowledge of the HTTP protocol, and a web browser can manipulate these things.

Remove it altogether would be a better move. It's meaningless pandering to the Facebook generation. Did you know that you don't even need an account to vote? Southy's babbling about "hacking scripts" and multiple accounts is just him trying to appear knowledgeable about this as well as everything else. Fact is, if you want to manipulate the scores, it's doable with any old web browser. A teeny bit of know-how makes it less laborious. No need for "hacking" or "scripts" or "torrents" or multiple accounts. Or indeed any accounts whatsoever.

It do happen, but not normally this far up a tidal river, a body can break up in the tidal currents or when its getting close to shallow water, whats being left out is how old they think these body parts are
This is correct. Body parts =/= foul play. Time will tell.

Remove it altogether would be a better move. It's meaningless pandering to the Facebook generation. Did you know that you don't even need an account to vote?

Fact is, if you want to manipulate the scores, it's doable with any old web browser. A teeny bit of know-how makes it less laborious.

You'd do well to not adopt that condescending tone with people who know more about this than you do. The voting is not tied to your account. Don't believe me? Log out and try voting. I know exactly how these guys are gaming the system, I noticed the vulnerability myself. Don't believe me? Watch this post get 32 upvotes as soon as it's posted.

Whether or not I, you or anyone else finds it funny doesn't change the fact that it was an obvious joke. The poster wasn't really claiming that it was his body parts that were found...

So you found the joke to be tasteless and I'm sure you're not the only one. However, it's also pretty tasteless to wish death on someone and, no, you don't get out of that by saying that it's some hypothetical 'other people' who wish the poster dead. You don't get to hide behind some group of silent other posters who you can claim to be speaking on behalf of.
It's also pretty nasty of old Linesman to be insulting and poking fun at someone he believes to have mental health problems. What a sicko.
If the nasty old person who wrote the original post was in a situation where a relative or friend of theirs had gone missing, perhaps they would not have thought that the finding of body parts was a good subject for humour.

Funnily this is probably the first time I have marked Southy up, so really suspect foul play now on the scoring system. Time for the DE to remove it I think, that will stop the schizzophrenic cyclists with at least three IDs scoring from the same IP address that they use.

I agree that it's a joke in very poor taste. You went on to wish - through imaginary proxies - that he was dead.

However, it's also pretty tasteless to wish death on someone and, no, you don't get out of that by saying that it's some hypothetical 'other people' who wish the poster dead. You don't get to hide behind some group of silent other posters who you can claim to be speaking on behalf of.[/p][/quote]It's also pretty nasty of old Linesman to be insulting and poking fun at someone he believes to have mental health problems. What a sicko.[/p][/quote]If the nasty old person who wrote the original post was in a situation where a relative or friend of theirs had gone missing, perhaps they would not have thought that the finding of body parts was a good subject for humour.[/p][/quote]I agree that it's a joke in very poor taste. You went on to wish - through imaginary proxies - that he was dead. Charlie Bucket

Come off it. We all know exactly what you meant. Making passive-aggressive "other people may think" comments fools nobody. If you're going to make nasty comments to someone, at least have the courage to stand by them, not try to weasel out of it on a semantic technicality.

Well, not the multi account theory but the multi vote on the same machine, which also means the multi account theory wouldn't work.

Remove it altogether would be a better move. It's meaningless pandering to the Facebook generation. Did you know that you don't even need an account to vote? Southy's babbling about "hacking scripts" and multiple accounts is just him trying to appear knowledgeable about this as well as everything else. Fact is, if you want to manipulate the scores, it's doable with any old web browser. A teeny bit of know-how makes it less laborious. No need for "hacking" or "scripts" or "torrents" or multiple accounts. Or indeed any accounts whatsoever.
There are a number of ways to do it, multi-accounts is probley the easiest with so many different apts to be able to go on line with
Nope. Incognito browser mode and/or clearing cookies is the easiest way to do it. Stop making things up.
you need to open up a lot and start thinking, mobile phone that is able to connect to the internet theres one source to log on with, lap top another home base another ipods another and a number of other ways to log on each with a different account, clearing cookies do not change your account
plus it not as if the thumbs up or down happens one or two at a time they are happening all at once, and that is a script running
So what's that got to do with multiple accounts, phones, ipods and laptops?
Each one is an axis to the internet with a different IP and different accounts by one person.
The way that you do it is just 1 way of doing it but there is a number of ways
