    It is sad to think what happens to missing persons in the area.
    I doubt sometimes whether a quiet and unagitated life would have suited me - yet I sometimes long for it.

    It's taken a while to get round to examining the bones: https://www.leamingtoncourier.co.uk/...d-week-2851954

    Not putting two and two together, but I understand that Nicola Payne's parents have been advised of the find.
    Of course it'll fit, you just need a bigger hammer.

    Yes, I've heard that. Apparently, the police have just told the family that 'remains have been found'.

    Not meaning to be flippant, but how horrible that poor person perished and never discovered. Could have been homeless or something.

    Looks like identification's going to difficult, as the remains are only a partial skeleton. It could just end up being an unsolved mystery.

    Who is Nicola Payne? something I must have missed.

    Nicola went missing 30-odd years ago; she's/her body's never turned up: https://www.coventrytelegraph.net/al...t/nicola-payne
