‘Murder’ victim found in woods wrapped in plastic is missing chef
A 'murder' victim whose body was found wrapped in plastic in woodland is believed to be a missing chef.
Hiran Chauhan, 24, from Seedley in Salford, didn't return home from work following a shift at El Capo restaurant last week.
He finished work at around 10.30pm on Tuesday, July 2 and began making his way home with a friend.
They both visited the McDonald's in Piccadilly Gardens then travelled home on a tram, first at Market Street and then another tram at St Peter's Square.
CCTV footage shows Hiran got off the tram at Cornbrook at 11.08pm.
He would normally then catch a tram towards Salford and get off at Langworthy.
Further footage shows Hiran got off the tram at Langworthy at 11.31pm, but Hiran never returned home to the room he rents in a house share.
A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder.
In a statement GMP said: "While formal identification is yet to take place, police believe this to be the body of 24-year-old Hiram Chuahan who was reported missing on Thursday 4 July 2019. His family have been informed."
Hiran was found wrapped in plastic at about 8am yesterday in undergrowth amongst trees off Eccles Old Road.
The grim discovery was made by school children using the wood as a cut through.
Police have issued an appeal for video footage captured in the area as they try to identify the killer.
In a statement GMP said: "A man aged 32 from the Salford area has been arrested on suspicion of murder and remains in custody for questioning.
"Shortly before 8.10am on Tuesday 9 July 2019, police were called to a wooded area close to Eccles Old Road, where it meets the junction of Brentwood, to reports that a body had been found.
"The body was found wrapped in what is thought to be plastic and a murder investigation was launched."
