A horrific package was dropped with police on the 20th of July. That of a decapitated corpse that had been beaten so badly that it was capable of being folded into a large cardboard box covered in tape.
Approximately 1230pm, an unmarked van sped down St Leonard street, Edinburgh before breaking and dropping the package on the pavement in front of Police Scotland offices before speeding off, much to the shock of onlookers. The same onlookers promptly alerted officers after bloodstains were spotted on the package.
So far, attempts to trace the van have been unsuccessful and police pathologists are working on identifying the corpse.
The police request that any member of the public with information regarding this matter please contact them and assure that all details will be kept confidential.
More as this unfolds.
