A dog walker finds a body in a Peterborough park. It’s a homeless man known as “Chink”. Though he didn’t live on the streets, preferring to sofa-surf, he was part of a close community of rough sleeping men and women.
“He was polite, he was pleasant, he was never antisocial,” says a friend of Chink’s. In a poignant episode, Cambridgeshire Police learn that Chink didn’t die in the park – his body was moved there.
A little while later, remarkably clear and very telling CCTV footage reveals an undignified final journey via, of all things, a mobility scooter. There’s an arrest and many tears from the suspect who tells detectives, “I wish I wasn’t so self-involved.”
A man lies dead in a park in Peterborough and the positioning of his body raises intense suspicions, but rigor mortis has already set in and the trail of evidence is going cold. Who is the victim and how did he come to be dumped overnight in open ground? Cameras follow as detectives are called in to investigate as the case becomes the priority for Bedfordshire Police's Major Crime Unit.
