TWO people - one from Dewsbury - are being quizzed by police about a seven-year-old murder.
Lennie Fulbirg, 49, disappeared in August 1996. His dismembered remains were found in a West Yorkshire lay-by close to the village of Oxenhope near Keighley in March 1997.
Advances in DNA meant police were only able to publicly confirm his identity earlier this week.
Police raided a house in the Thornhill area of Dewsbury on Wednesday and arrested a 38-year-old man on suspicion of murder.
A similar raid was carried out in the Bierley area of Bradford and a 38-year-old woman was detained, also on suspicion of murder.
Both are still being questioned at Bradford central police station.
Police yesterday successfully applied to Bradford Magistrates to continue holding them for a further 36 hours.
Mr Fulbirg, originally from Newcastle upon Tyne, had been married four times and had fathered up to 32 children with a number of women.
He was a thief with a number of convictions for dishonesty.
He also had a conviction for indecently assaulting an underage girl.
He disappeared on August 11, 1996, after telling his family he was meeting a friend at a McDonald's restaurant on Rooley Lane in Bradford. He was never seen again.
His body had been dismembered and burned before being dumped in the lay-by.
