I only saw the man a few times. I never saw the lady or any family.
I have lived here for 18 years. They were living at the house when I moved in. But they never had any visitors. I never saw anyone coming or going.
My friend and I always used to say, 'I wonder what happened to that couple'. They just disappeared. We thought they had emigrated.

What happened to William and Patricia Wycherley, who lived at the house in Mansfield where the remains were found is a mystery.

Police are also speaking with the family of Mr and Mrs Wycherley to try to find out if there is a link to the investigation.
The officer leading the investigation, DCI Rob Griffin, did say however that police could not confirm with 100% certainty who was found buried in the back garden of the property.
“Neither William nor Patricia was ever reported missing and we can find no evidence of either of them being alive or dead. The discovery in their former garden last week may be the reason why."
“We have yet to formally identify the remains, and so cannot say with 100% certainty who we have found, but it’s not great leap to imagine it might be the Wycherleys."
A couple called William and Patricia Wycherley previously lived in the house where the remains of two people have been found buried in the back garden, according to the Nottingham Post.
