Detectives believe the body found at a recycling plant in Bristol, identified as that of Matthew Symonds, may have been transported 45 miles in a recycling bin from his home town of Swindon.
Wiltshire Police's senior investigating officer, Detective Chief Inspector Gareth Bevan, said the investigation was still at an early stage. "Police enquiries so far suggest the body was transported with commercial recycling waste collected in Swindon and therefore the focus of the investigation will be in that area going forward," he said.
