Jamie Dack's Body found by firefighters in the early hours of Sunday in an industrial bin in a Southampton industrial estate.

A murdered man who may have been moved through a city centre in a wheelie bin before being set alight has been named by police as officers continue to question four people.

Jamie Dack, 22, was found by firefighters in the early hours of Sunday in an industrial bin in Empress Road industrial estate in Southampton as they tackled the blaze.

Officers are now working on the theory that Mr Dack was killed at a house in Southampton and then wheeled along roads in the wheelie bin before being dumped in the industrial bin.

Those arrested, three men aged 31, 28 and 25 and a 20-year-old woman, are continuing to be quizzed after their time in custody was extended until midnight tonight.

Superintendent Julian Snowball, from Greater Manchester Police, said the area was slightly off the beaten track but near a public footpath in an area of wasteland where old fires had been lit.

He said it was a place where people would sometimes go to drink or sleep rough.

The officer said a post mortem would be held to establish the cause of death. Read More
