Exactly suspects.....Just because someone has been arrested don't mean they done it ? Seems to be a very few "odd" crimes going on at the moment in southampton

I don't think there is any suggestion that either of these people were burned to death. More likely the bodies were burned post mortem to remove forensic evidence of the killers. If, indeed, this was a killing.
