A teenage boy who found a body in a garden well has described the moment he saw an "adult male" covered in tarpaulin as he cleared up outside of a house in an affluent area of Surrey.
Jack Duncan, 17, told the Croydon Advertiser he and Rory Mulholland, 21, had been asked to work in the garden on Friday and noticed something "covered in tarpaulin" on the top of the well.
“I didn't think it was a body, I didn't know what it was," Duncan told the newspaper. “Then I saw the shape of two legs, and then a backside, and I realised it was a body."
It was definitely a man. You could tell by the size of his thighs, he had builder’s legs. It was definitely an adult. It still had skin and hair, so couldn't have been there for very long.
