39 Bodies Discovered in Trailer in Essex, Driver Arrested for Murder

Truck Believed to Have Entered Country from Bulgaria on Saturday


The police have arrested a 25-year-old North Ireland man after thirty-nine bodies were discovered in a container in Essex, England.

The man is reported to have driven the truck from Bulgaria and entered the country on Saturday via Holyhead, Anglesey.

The truck was discovered at Waterglade Industrial Park in Eastern Avenue.

The victims were described only as 38 adults and a teenager. However, the identities of the victims were not immediately disclosed.

Ch Supt Andrew Mariner said “We have arrested the lorry driver in connection with the incident, who remains in police custody as our inquiries continue,”

Wrongful death and personal injury attorney Arin Khodaverdian, President and Managing Partner of Alpine Law Group, urges accidents victims and their families to immediately seek legal assistance. “Those who are affected by tragedy have rights, but they must act quickly in order to preserve those rights to the full extent of the law. Often, swift action by an experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.”

While Mr. Khodaverdian does not represent any of the parties involved in this incident, he has recovered over $100 million for thousands of injury victims and their families. “In one case, we were able to recover a 7-figure settlement within 11 business days of being hired by the family of a victim killed by a negligent driver. While this result is atypical and does not predict future outcomes, justice in this case help bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the family.”
