A second man has been charged by detectives investigating the murder of Sam Price-Purcell.

“The investigation will continue until all those involved in the Sam’s murder and disposal of his remains are put before the courts.” Acting Detective Inspector David Nicoll of the Homicide Group said.

“Police would like to thank members of the public who have assisted in this investigation. It would not have been solved without them coming forward and speaking with police.”
