Two arrested on suspicion of murder after human remains found near Bournemouth beach

Two people have been arrested on suspicion of murder following the discovery of partial human remains in Bournemouth, Dorset Police have confirmed.

Police said the victim has been identified as a 49-year-old man from Bournemouth. His family has been informed.

A woman, 38, and a 48-year-old man, both from the area, have been arrested, a week after the remains were discovered by a member of the public near the Manor Steps Zig Zag, off Boscombe Overcliff Drive.

“This remains a very complex investigation and we have worked tirelessly since the initial discovery and report to progress our inquiries,” police said.

“Foremost, our thoughts are with the victim’s family. We will continue to do all we can to establish the circumstances of the death.

“Now that we have been able to identify the victim following scientific analysis, I am in a position to be more specific about my appeal.”

Detectives have said that anyone who saw suspicious activity around the Manor Steps Zig Zag between 31 July and 26 August should come forward, and that any information or images should be uploaded to the major incident public portal.

“A number of cordons have been put in place across the Boscombe area and I would like to thank the public for their assistance while officers conduct their detailed enquiries,” he said.

“Officers can be approached by members of the public with any information or concerns.”

The wider cordon around the area of the Manor Steps Zig Zag has been removed.
