Police have spent three days at the property and were back overnight to gather more evidence.

Mr Goodwin had been missing for 10 days and it’s thought his body may have been dumped at the property only hours before it was discovered.

Relatives say Mr Goodwin had fallen in with the wrong crowd and some months ago he reportedly had his fingers chopped off with a machete over a debt he owed.
