Boston death post mortem 'inconclusive'

A post mortem carried out on a 35-year-old man found dead on Argyle Street in Boston was 'inconclusive'. Police say they'll now have to wait for the results of forensic tests to establish the exact cause of death.

Two men and a woman were arrested in connection with the incident and have have been released on police bail, to return to Boston Police Station once the results of the tests are known.

Lincolnshire Police say they're not in a position to name the deceased as he has not yet been formally identified and relatives have yet to be informed.


Mansfield couple 'never reported missing'

A murder inquiry has been launched by detectives who discovered the remains of two bodies in the back garden of a house in Mansfield.

Today they said they're confident that they've found William and Patricia Wycherley, who were last seen in 1998, and that they have been killed. The couple were never reported missing and were found last week after a tip-off. David Hirst reports.

Police say it's proving difficult to determine how reclusive elderly couple William and Patricia Wycherley died because their bodies had been buried for so long.

Detectives today launched a murder inquiry a week after they discovered human remains in the back garden of a house at Blenheim Close in Forest Town, Mansfield.

But they say they are confident the remains are those of Mr and Mrs Wycherley. The couple moved to the address in the quiet cul-de-sac in 1987, but vanished 12 years later.

Police say the couple were never reported missing, and police only went to the house following an anonymous tip off.

BREAKING: Police launch double murder enquiry

Police have just confirmed that they are now investigating a double murder following the discovery a week ago of the remains of an elderly couple at Forest Green in Mansfield.

William and Patricia Wycherley disappeared in 1998. Last week police excavated the back garden of their home in Blenheim Close and discovered the skeletal remains of the couple.
