Thirty-nine found dead in what appears to be human trafficking gone wrong in southeast England. Sources are reporting the finding of 38 adults and 1 teenager in a tractor-trailer. A 25-year-old man from Northern Ireland identified as the truck driver has been detained by Essex police. It is not determined if the truck driver is involved with the murder, but he will remain in custody at this time. It is also believed that the trailer may have come from Bulgaria passing through Ireland and entered through one of the busiest ports in England. Deputy Chief Constable Pippa Mills said the movement of the trailer is a key part of the investigations that’s ongoing at this time and will be a lengthy one.
