Missing Corrie McKeague’s mum fears his body was in a bin collected on the night he vanished after police revealed chilling new information from a waste management firm. Police investigating the RAF man’s disappearance have said the company now say a wheelie bin collected that night weighed 100kg, rather than the 11kg first thought.
As a result, police are now putting even more focus on searching a landfill site for the airman’s body. It has been revealed that Corrie was 5ft 10in and weighed around 14st (90 kilograms). Nearly six months after Corrie McKeague vanished, police have just started sifting the dump close to where his phone was last located. Specialist teams yesterday began scouring 8,000 tonnes of rubbish, lying 26ft deep, at the landfill site detectives identified as a “place of interest” a week after the RAF gunner disappeared.Corrie’s mum Nicola posted on Facebook: “With the weight of the bin that was lifted the night Corrie went missing has been incorrect and the true weight is over 100kg. This can really devastatingly only mean one thing. I can only pray that Corrie is found quickly and that we are able to get answers as to how this could have happened. Please can I ask everyone on here to try really hard not to speculate just now. Each second waiting to find Corrie is torture enough. This page was set up to find corrie. We still need to do this.”
