DETECTIVES investigating the murder of a man whose dismembered body was found in a remote West Yorkshire lay-by more than eight years ago have been given more time to quiz a man and woman on suspicion of murder.
Parts of victim Leonard Fulbirg's skeleton were discovered in a lay-by in the picturesque village of Oxenhope, near Keighley, in March, 1997. He was identified only last year after advances in DNA technology.
West Yorkshire Police arrested a 39-year-old woman from Bierley, Bradford, and a 39-year-old man from the Batley Carr area over Mr Fulbirg's death and have been granted an extra 36 hours to question them by Bradford Magistrates' Court.
Mr Fulbirg, 49, disappeared on August 11, 1996, after telling his family he was meeting a friend at a McDonald's in Rooley Lane, Bradford. He was never seen again.
Police said his body had been dismembered and burnt before being dumped in the lay-by.
