3 years(ish) ago a cyclist on a group ride in Scotland went missing.he was aged 70ish.
I have just had a phone call to tell me his body has been found.
He had been murdered and buried.
2 men in their 20s have been arrested.
So........does anyone remember this.
Just to explain.......
I was a friend of this guys BiL so its a bit tenuous.

Never mind the tenuous connection it’s a horrifying event. Do you know what the motive might have been ?

They only found the buried body this week, maybe today.
I have no idea how they came to arrest the 2 men.
I am waiting on information.

Yes I remember the original story, the original appeals for sightings. Hopefully now they’ve recovered his remains the forensic anthropologists can get to work to secure convictions.

There is an article on the BBC website - and in other places

sounds like they arrested 2 men in December - so presumably something happened that pointed to them and things have moved forward from there

sympathy to any relatives

I don't think there is any public information that he was murdered - it could be that he was killed by a vehicle whilst cycling and the driver/drivers friends buried the body. This makes no difference to the deceased but might do to his friends and family and certainly does (rightly or wrongly) in law.

Very true Milkfloat.
We (family and friends) may be assuming too much.
Time will hopefully tell us more.
 
Oldwheels........I must try and find this "mundane" thread you speak of ^_^
His age is given as 63 and no mention of a group ride. He had taken a train to Fort William and was cycling towards home overnight.
Probably not a good idea to comment or speculate too much at this stage.
