Man charged over head in bag find
A man has been charged with murder over the human head that was found in a shopping bag in the UK on New Years Eve. The intact head was found along with other bones and decomposing body parts in Hawthornvale, England.
Police have arrested and charged a 54-year-old man over the discovery of a human head and bones in a shopping bag.
He is accused of attempting to defeat the ends of justice and is expected to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court.
The badly decomposed head from an adult woman was found alongside bones in a blue Ikea bag in Newhaven, Edinburgh, on 31 December.
The remains are believed to be from the same person, who may have died between a few months and several years ago.
