It's her partner they have arrested, isn't it? The police are currently digging in the garden of their house.

I must admit when I heard they had arrested a man I did wonder if it was her partner.

Very sad case. I hope they find out what happened soon.

Her body - it seems - has been found in her own garden. I wonder why the authorities didn't check the garden for ground disturbance in the first place.

Didn't her partner front an appeal for Helen to get in touch with the police?

The fact that it's her partner is so predictable and yet it should be just a plot from a thriller but it's so often real life. Am I wrong in thinking women are always going to be vulnerable because they are usually smaller, lighter? Not all women but a substantial number. It makes me feel sick.

Just a reminder that the case is sub judice, so we shouldn't be speculating on the guilt of the person accused.

But this article sheds light on why the body wasn't found earlier - the police drained the septic tank very early on in the investigation, but it turns out that there was a hidden underground cesspit they weren't aware of until a neighbour alerted them:
