What do you mean by that Ronek? Or is it just another sweeping generalisation?

It doesnt mention the nationality of the people arrested, dont think it really matters a murder is a murder regardless of where they come from.

My thoughts are with his parents, Christmas is a terrible time of year to lose someone.

Yes our thoughts should be with the family and not trying to apportion blame to one nationality or another.

true it just states on the news about the male and female arrested in connection with the body being found as i have just watched the lunchtime bulletin on itvlocal:yorkshire on interweb... maybe more will be known on the evening slot at 6pm ....

We don,t yet know if the guy was murdered , although its looking this way...If he was murdered , we don,t why , and i suspect as in Previous cases of Polish deaths in the UK that the fact he was Polish had nothing to do with his death...
The only fact that is really important is that a young man has met his death long before his time, and his girlfriend and family have lost someone they love....
I am sure we will get the usual anti British yapping from some on this forum ,which i am sure my Polish friends on here will despise as much as i do.....England is not full of thugs hunting down Polish workers , but it does have thugs , who don,t much care where you come from.....A stranger in town is seen as a vunerable target to these thugs , and they don,t much care if you come from another town or another country....I am English , but i have no love for the scum in my country of birth or any other... Lets just be sad that this happened and not use it to start a verbal war between the anti Brits , and the anti Poles....

People are murdered every single day in Poland. Anyway, it is too early to speculate. He might have simply been very drunk and fallen in. The police are legally required to treat all such deaths as suspicious from the outset but tend to downscale their activities later on.

The body , who we are assuming is Tobiasz , was found by the side of the canal , its possible he did fall in , and died after getting out , but we are all just guessing , we must wait and see what the Police say....The fact that two people have been arrested suggests to me that the Police think it wasn,t an accident...

wildrover Edited by: wildrover    Dec 20, 2007, 05:18am /  #
The latest news , is that the body has been identified as the missing Polish man....A 25 year old man has been charged with murder.....A woman arrested earlier has been released......I am so sad for his girlfriend , and family....

The person arrested has an English name (Daniel Sykes), is aged 25 and lived in the same neighbourhood. They didn't give any other details, except that Tobiasz had travelled by taxi to three cashpoints that night and withdrawn 40 pounds each time.

What a dreadful Christmas present for the families concerned!

This link, to the local police website has quite a bit on the story. Poor guy...

My HEART goes out to the victim and his family. WHAT A LOST !

As a resident in the area and having walked past where Tobiasz minski's body was without knowing, I feel very sad that another human being can have caused his death, they not only have destructed Tobiasz minski' family's future but the future of their own family.
It is not known what happened, just that a young man is arrested and charged with his murder.
It does seem to be known that heavy drinking was involved and Tobiasz minski came back to Slaithwaite in a taxi, not near his home, so why?
Perhaps Students should look at the drinking that they do and then maybe they should moderate and then will be able to look after themselves better. Students wherever they are from suffer from this problem.
As a parent of sons, my heart goes out to his Mother but also to the Mother of the young man who is on remand for the murder of him.
This is nothing to do with Nationality but foolish young adults.
