Corrie McKeague was buried in landfill as police conclude he was in

“As stated earlier, all this information has been held within this enquiry and previously reviewed. There is no new evidence that has come to light as a result of this meeting.”As the SIO for the investigation into Corrie’s disappearance, I am now completely satisfied that the data provided by Biffa can be relied upon, as can the 116kg recorded weight of the Greggs Bin collected on 24.9.16.”This investigation has found no other reasonable explanation for that unusually high bin weight, thus when this data is considered alongside the other evidence held within this enquiry it confirms and consolidates my view that the preferred outcome and finding of this investigation is that during the early hours of 24th Sept 2016 Corrie came to be in the bin that was collected by the Biffa lorry and was transported away from the Horseshoe area to Red Lodge transfer station.”Suffolk and Norfolk police spent 137 days looking for Corrie at the Milton tip and trawled through more than 7,000 tonnes of rubbish. In March this year they announced they announced his disappearance had been moved to the major investigation cold case team. Missing RAF airman Corrie McKeague was buried in landfill, police have ruled after concluding his body would have been in an “unusually heavy” bin.Officers confirmed his remains would have been in the landfill site in Cambridgeshire, as his family said they would now be holding a private memorial.Suffolk Police attended a meeting with Biffa Head Office, who confirmed the weight of the bin, which was picked up from outside Greggs in the Horseshoe area of Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk on September 24 2016 when Corrie went missing.  They believed he climbed into the waste bin and fell asleep and the data showed the bin weighed 116kg – much higher than bin collection weights from the same place normally.In a statement the force said: “We reviewed the data for 24th September in particular and I remain confident that the bin did weigh 116kg as previously stated.”We then went onto identify the weights of the Greggs bin which was collected each Saturday during the period of Jan 16 and Feb 17.”Our findings were that the weights of these bins were consistently low (mostly between 20-30KG) and it was extremely unusual for the Greggs bin collection on a Saturday to be anywhere near 100KG let alone over this figure.

His father Martin McKeague said on Facebook: “The police have confirmed the Biffa bin weight that suggests my son ended up in the Suffolk waste disposal system.”They also confirmed that there is no new evidence whatsoever. Whatever anyone has read in the newspapers to suggest otherwise is a lie.”My son is gone and the McKeague family in Scotland will be holding a private memorial for him in the near future. Thank you all again for standing up and standing by us.”
