Possible serial killer in Manchester, UK.
Despite denial from the police, it’s more than possible that a serial killer is stalking North-West. Professor Craig Jackson from Birmingham university was the first to contact police bosses, bringing to attention that it is “extremely unlikely such an alarming number of bodies found in the canals is the result of accidents or suicides”. 62 bodies in the past 7 years is certainly as cause for concern. All bodies found were male, usually aged 20-40 and it seems the majority of them went missing under the same circumstances: They went to a pub or concert with a group of friends, got separated and were only seen again when their body turned up a few days later in one of Manchester’s many canals. Additionally, canals are known for being popular dump sites for many serial killers, as evidence is washed away quickly. Despite mounting evidence police still seem to be ignoring the possibility completely.
The most recent death was that of a middle aged man. His body was found 3 days ago (05/02/15) in a canal. One of the deaths was of Chris Brahney, 22, from Timperley, who was found dead in the Manchester Ship Canal 10 days after going missing from a Stone Roses concert in Heaton Park in June 2012. He had become separated from his friends following the gig, sparking a massive manhunt across the region. At an inquest into Chris’s death, deputy coroner Joanne Kearsley recorded an open verdict and admitted she simply couldn’t say how he had ended up in the water. In another death, Manchester University student Souvik Pal, 18, was found dead in the Bridgewater Canal three weeks after he had been ejected from a New Year’s Eve party at the Warehouse Project dance night in Trafford Park.
He had been seen walking away from the venue with a mystery man.
