Man ruled out of M5 murder hunt, lot of coincidences

#1
A man who was arrested on suspicion of murder after the discovery of a woman's bones near the M5 has been ruled out as a suspect.

The 37-year-old went to Cheadle Heath police station, in Stockport, earlier, but Avon and Somerset Police said he had been eliminated from the inquiry.

The remains of Melanie Hall were found in a bin bag next to the M5 near Bristol on Monday

'No real importance'

The man - who contacted Manchester Police at 0245 BST on Thursday - is being assessed at Stepping Hill Hospital in Stockport.

Full BBC news story here

Now far be it for me to cast any aspersions on someones character but murder walting, what on earth is that all about?

More worryingly, a local to the area is well know on here for shall we say "a well developed imagination"

37?
Stockport?
surely not Arrsepedia
taking a new direction?

edited to admit i cant add up and he is 38

Murder/Rape/'orrible Crime Walting is far more common than you might think possible. Usually sad attention seekers or the plain bonkers.

IIRC one of the reasons why Yorkshire Ripper enquiry was bogged down.

They want the fame and notoriety, but haven't got the balls (or should that be ball-peins) to carry out the deeds themselves. Sad attention seekers indeed.

When I was in plod in my probationary period, a guy walked in at front counter saying he needed to speak to an officer about something very personal, muggins here gets called down to deal wondering what'll this be all about.

The fella spent about an hour, possibly more, telling me how about 10 years before, he raped a 89 year old gran who lived over the road from him, and that she didn't like it, at first!! He claimed the old dear had died a few years after.

So there was I, young PC being sensitive to this confession, making pages and pages of notes thinking 'wow - time for me to shine and clear this high profile crime up', wondering if I had grounds to nick him (if & how there was a complainant/IP etc), speaking confidentially to control room and so on and so on.

At some point during the talk, matey-boy then rattles of a list of medication he took - turns out he was prescribed some pretty pokey pills and after contacting his doc I learnt how in the previous week he had been doing laps of the mental health clinic celebrating after winning the FA cup.

So there are plenty of 'characters' willing to cough to all sorts of things and get some attention. I was gutted - could've filled in half of my PDP with that if it was true!

(we did verify the gran didn't ever exist before anyone thinks we totally dismissed his claim without checking)

Must have been about 25 years ago they dug up a body in some marshy ground near Reading, announced it on the evening news.

A bloke ( Airline pilot if I remember ?) duely trotted into the Station, announced "I'll save you the bother, it was me" and proceeded to cough to the murder of his wife many years earlier, described how he had killed her and buried the body in the swamp etc. At the time he'd reported that she had run off and left him etc etc.

The body in the swamp turned out to be 2000 years old.....

Want wierd confessions, try the Brampton Werewolf-
IT HAS ALL the ingredients of what Sherlock Holmes would call "a three-pipe problem."
0ut of the snowbound lanes walked a man, covered in blood from his chin to his knees, who announced to police “I аm a werewolf."
At first detectives thought the fresh blood caking his raded cream jacket belonged to an animal. But tests established it as human. Yesterday, with the man refusing to reveal any information, officers were trying to account for all 6,000 residents of Brampton, near Carlisle, Cumbria.
Frogmen scoured lakes and the River Irthing which runs past the market town. Gardeners checked their sheds and families rang round sons, daughters, cousins and aunts.
So whose blood is it? "If only we knew", said James Shaw, owner of the Sands House Hotel, from whose car park the "werewolf was picked up last Tuesday. "The police are being very thorough and are checking every man, woman and child. They have been back to us five times."
The man, who lives near Brampton, has been questioned, but gives vague, enigmatic answers. Search parties have re-traced every footstep he is known to have made. Tracker dogs have combed woods and fields and people who spotted the strange, dishevelled figure have been interviewed at length.
Detective Chief Superintendent Stephen Reed said yesterday: "We are either looking for a body or someone who is seriously injured. The amount ot blood is consistent with one or the other. It is like a jigsaw puzzle you start from the wrong end. We have the centre piece and are now looking for bits to complete the picture."
Yesterday 30 uniformed officers and 12 detectives were cross-checking electoral rolls and picking their way over frozen fields near Hadrian's Wall. They are still searching for a black leather jacket which the man is believed to have discarded before his dramatic entrance into Bramplon.
On Friday a man was remanded in custody by Carlisle magistates, charged with burglary and assaulting a police officer.
All true. Eventually no corpse was found and the bloke is still in the area.
There was a large quantity of blood, allegedly too much to be his and him still be alive IIRC he wouldn't actually have a blood test to establish if it was his blood.
Met the bloke a few times in the years afterwards and he is an interesting character to say the least. Never resolved.

Was a long time ago, 15 years or so(?)
Was a huge kerfuffke about it for a few days while Plod searched for a body. After a while they couldn't get any sense out of him and couldn't find a corpse and let the matter quietly drop. All completely true though. Bloke was covered in human blood and claimed to be a werewolf
