The ghastly details have been left oddly vague in the case of an unnamed, and allegedly 5-months pregnant, 23-year-old Pakistani woman who was burned to death in the streets of the British town West Bowling.
As the Telegraph and Argus reported: It was understood she had been on fire and she was pronounced dead at the scene a short time later. The investigation is being led by the Homicide and Major Enquiry Team of West Yorkshire Police.
A post-mortem examination was being carried last night by a Home Office pathologist to try to determine the exact cause of her death and it remained unclear whether it was being treated as suspicious.
If not outright suspicious, the death, described by neighbors as “shocking… because it’s a quiet neighborhood,” takes on an even more mysterious air considering the woman was, allegedly, “rarely seen.”
Said one neighbor: “We never saw her. You never saw her with her husband, never ever saw them together.”
Another resident, who did not want to be identified, said she had never seen the woman since she moved in.”
Which has be wondering, why has everything been kept so quiet — even the victim’s identity? Don’t the tabloids usually ruthlessly pursue these kinds of things… so why does this story just appear to be simmering?
