What I find suspicious is a murder happened the week before there yet they didn't think to step up patrols in that area what if someone wanted revenge or something..? They are declaring it as that to cover their backs I think cos it shows clearly in the past few weeks alone that we need more police and better cctv that aren't in Tower block lifts but in parks towns and normal roads

I'm pretty sure that the body was not actually found in the bins and that the article is just poorly worded.

Personally I am going to trust the opinion of the detectives who investigated this and were in possession of the full facts.

Not suspicious? Then the police should give the cause of death and the DE should report this. After all, I don't normally find dead bodies in, among or behind my bins ...

Well said, somebody with common sense.

People die all the time of all sorts of things, I trust the police and the autopsy service over ill informed speculation.

A man was quickly apprehended, charged and remanded to attend court today, for the murder which you mention here. Hence, the lack of any 'step up' in police patrols. The alleged perpetrator, was already under lock and key.

Covering their backs? Are you saying that as a joke?

Great commenting. You can explain I presume, beyond all doubt, why this is a suspicious death. After all, nobody ever died on a street before of natural causes, right?

" whose body was found in bins"
" the 51-year-old's remains "

Does this article not suggest that this poor woman's body was found in more than one bin?

My five year old grand daughter could write a better article.

I think you'll find that ascertaining the full facts, including the verdict on the cause of death is actually for the Coroner to work out during any subsequent inquest.

I suppose it's inconceivable she died from natural causes or suicide then? When you read "not being treated as suspicious" you should infer that it's not being treated as a murder enquiry
