The most important lesson for young men to learn is that psychotic bitches can destroy decent men's lives
and their traits may take many years to rear their ugly head. A lawyer on legal aid will soon tease those traits

The Personality Types of False Accusers and the Falsely Accused
Too many men have become the targets of false allegations. False allegations of domestic violence. False allegations of sexual assault. And false allegations of sexual abuse.
False allegations are lies and people who make false allegations are liars. A false allegation of abuse isn’t just any lie; it’s one of the most contemptible lies that exists. Even one victim of such a despicable lie is one victim too many.
Oftentimes, when a man finds himself the target of false allegations, he initially becomes paralyzed by shock and disbelief that a woman he once loved or still loves could perpetrate such a horrible lie upon him. The nightmare of false allegations is always compounded whenever children are involved.
What precipitates these kinds of false allegations?
Domestic violence literature holds that ending an abusive relationship is often the most dangerous time for the target of abuse. The classic stereotype is that of the alcoholic Neanderthal who beats his wife to death as she attempts to walk out the door after years of abuse.
For men, ending a relationship with an abusive woman is also often the most dangerous time.
Just like his female counterpart, when a man makes the agonizing decision to divorce an abusive wife, it may end in violence. Stories abound in the news of women killing their ex-husbands and their own children during divorce and custody battles. But women have another weapon at their disposal, which is just as lethal as any firearm or poison.
That weapon is the false allegation.
Many men, despite having been subjected to years of abuse, come a cropper when their ex makes a false allegation. How could someone you once loved and who supposedly loved you tell such horrible lies?
The simplest answer is that women who perpetrate false allegations are malicious and disturbed. Men also make false allegations and those that do are equally malicious and disturbed, but let’s face it, there are clear tactical advantages for women who fabricate false allegations.
Over the last 25 years, as the domestic violence and divorce industries have grown, a perverse system has developed in response to female initiated allegations of abuse in which the accuser is rewarded.
How are women rewarded for making false allegations?
They get attention. The person they hate is punished. They receive social approval. We all hate abusers and pedophiles, right? Look at that courageous woman who’s fighting to protect her child! Female false accusers may also receive free legal representation, welfare payments, free counseling and other support services and support from family, friends and neighbors — in other words, even more attention (Wakefield & Underwager, 1990).
Furthermore, there are very little, if any consequences for women who make false allegations in family court (Green & Schetky, 1988). Ultimately, the false accuser has far more to gain than she has to lose. However, I’m hopeful that we’ll soon be seeing more stories like that of Daryl Guinyard, the man who sued his ex-wife in civil court for making false sexual abuse allegations and was awarded $852,000 in punitive damages.
What happens to men when they’re falsely accused?
Many men experience a very rude awakening when they enter the justice system via false allegations. Perhaps the truth will prevail, but typically not without a considerable amount of collateral damage to themselves and their children.
When a man is accused of abusing a woman or child, any concept of due process and “innocent until proven guilty” flies out the window. Men are assumed guilty until proven innocent when a woman cries abuse or rape.
False allegations can turn a difficult divorce into full out nuclear war.
When a woman calls 911 and alleges violence, a man is often required to vacate the family home. If his wife follows up with an emergency protective order, he must then submit to prolonged alienation from his children. He becomes caught in both the criminal justice system and social service bureaucracies, which may result in jail time and/or court-ordered therapy while the real criminal, his lying wife, wins possession of both the children and the marital home.
Men who are falsely accused by their exes also face the threat of presumably well-intentioned, but zealous and biased mental health professionals and court evaluators who are quick to believe the accusations of the often highly emotional, female false accusers based on little to no evidence.
The falsely accused isn’t the only casualty of a court appointee’s or mental health evaluator’s rush to judgment. Both the accused and his children are hurt.
When the false allegations involve sexual abuse, children are subjected to a long process of interrogation, therapies and medical examinations, which can be invasive, confusing and traumatic. The falsely accused often suffers emotional and physical trauma, public humiliation, family breakdown and financial ruin. Furthermore, the relationship with his children may be irreparably damaged.
Fighting to prove his innocence can take years and become a financial expense many men simply can’t afford.
Just as false accusers rarely receive consequences for perverting and obstructing justice, court evaluators and mental health professionals who wrongly determine that abuse has occurred through their own incompetence and biases are rarely held accountable. The people who suffer the most negative consequences are the falsely accused and the children. This isn’t justice; it’s a mockery of justice.
What do we know about women who make false allegations?
Wakefield and Underwager (1990) determined that false accusers are much more likely to have a personality disorder such as histrionic, borderline, passive-aggressive, or paranoid. False accusers appear to be highly defensive and rigid, to have poor insight and a tendency to deny personal shortcomings. They tend to be extremely concerned about and sensitive to how others perceive them. False accusers tend to confuse feelings with facts. A woman may “feel” abused or may “feel” the children are being abused, when, objectively speaking, no abuse has actually occurred (Zepezauer, 1994).
Wakefield and Underwager (1990) found that:
[False accusers] are likely to misperceive the behavior of others and to react to stressful situations in maladaptive ways. Depending upon the specific personality disorder, they are characterized by instability of mood, impulsivity, inappropriate emotional overreactions, a need for approval and attention, and difficulties handling anger and conflict.
False accusers also have an obsessive hatred of and anger toward their ex-partner, so much so that their hatred and anger become a driving force in their lives. False accusers are individuals who hate their exes more than they love their children. Their hatred and anger trumps the needs and much ballyhooed best interests of their children.
What do we know about men who become the targets of false allegations of abuse?
They tend to be your average nice guy who has a more nurturing and passive personality. These men are unlikely to be socially aggressive or competitive and tend to lack insight into their personal relationships, which may explain why so many of these men are thrown for a loop when their ex throws them under the bus — even when she’s made threats throughout their marriage to call 911 and have him arrested (Wakefield & Underwager, 1990).
Additionally, these men, because of their sensitive and caring natures, may be more vulnerable to relationships with needy and manipulative women. Once in a relationship with a high-conflict (HCP) and/or abusive personality disordered woman (APDI), they may behave somewhat passively as they continue to naively hope that everything will magically work out in the end.
What are the identifiable characteristics of false allegation cases?
Ross and Blush (1987; 1990) have found certain patterns that characterize false allegation cases. For instance:
The allegations start after separation and legal action commences.
There’s a history of family dysfunction with high-conflict and other hidden underlying issues.
Again, the female accuser is often a histrionic or borderline personality.
The female accuser takes an angry, defensive and justifying stance.
The accused male parent is generally nurturing, passive and lacks “macho” characteristics.
In alleged sexual molestation cases, the child is typically a female under the age of 8.
The allegations surface via the custodial parent who is typically the mother.
The mother takes the child to an “expert” who corroborates the abuse and identifies the father as the culprit.
The court reacts to the expert information by terminating or limiting visitation.
Ross and Blush also determined there are primarily three types of false accusers: the histrionic, the justified vindicator and the borderline.
The histrionic personality appears anxious and presents herself as the victim of her ex. She describes herself as physically and/or psychologically abused by her ex and worries that the children are also in danger of being victimized from him. She projects or superimposes her feelings, fears and distortions onto the children. She seems to have “unusual and inappropriate” sexual concerns about the children and may regularly examine the children’s genitals and take them for frequent medical examinations.
The justified vindicator initially presents as assertive and organized with a justifiable argument supported by “facts, figures and opinions supporting her evidence.” She comes across as outraged and worried about her ex’s behavior. However, as most high-conflict types do, she becomes resistant, hostile and passive-aggressive or overtly aggressive upon cross-examination of her claims. She’s likely to try to discredit any evaluator or law enforcement official that questions her assertions and may threaten to sue or file an ethics complaint.
The borderline personality has intense and chaotic interpersonal relationships and is prone to intense valuation and devaluation. They will attempt to punish others who they believe have abandoned or hurt them. False allegations are a highly effective way of doing this.
In my practice, I coach many men through the divorce process. Prior to pulling the pin and telling their abusive wives that the marriage is over, I help my clients create a safe exit strategy. I use the phrase “pulling the pin” deliberately, because divorcing an abusive, high-conflict and possibly personality disordered woman is often very much like handling a live grenade.
I warn every single male client who is about to divorce or break-up with an abusive partner that he may be at risk for becoming the target of false allegations.
Many men can’t comprehend how or why their partner or ex could fabricate such a lie. Even when their wives have threatened to call 911 during the relationship to intimidate and control them, they still have a difficult time believing that it could happen to them. Men whose wives or girlfriends have threatened to call the cops during their relationship to intimidate or control them are especially at risk should they decide to separate.
Counseling is not a consequence.
False allegations, even if they’re later disproved, rarely result in a completely happy ending for the accused and the children. Family court and law officials must begin implementing serious consequences — beyond the anemic “consequence” of outpatient counseling — for both women and men who make false allegations. Perhaps if women who are inclined to make false allegations knew there would be real life consequences such as jail time, fines and loss of custody, they wouldn’t be as likely to see making false allegations as a viable option.
Enough is enough.

|Wife plotted with secret lover to kill her airman husband so she could claim his life insurance
Nathan Paet and his murdering wife Michelle. There are men across the world unaware they are married to
evil bitches like this one who will stop at nothing to push them into an early grave either through
murder or using the family courts to psychologically torture them to get hold of the family silver.
Freemasons running those courts, disguised as judges, only to happy to help the poor wee wifey's push those men into
early graves. We have PERSONAL experience of how that operates.
FULL ARTICLE HERE
When war veteran Nathan Paet was shot dead outside his home, a smiley face emoticon sent from his wife’s phone led police to the killer.
As a military wife, Michelle Paet was used to her husband working late at a Las Vegas Air Force base. Staff Sergeant Nathan was devoted to her and their four children and worked the graveyard shift to make extra money.
One ordinary evening, Nathan kissed his kids goodbye and headed to his car to go to work. Meanwhile, Michelle sent a text message on her mobile phone. Minutes later, the sound of gunfire filled the night air.
When Nathan staggered back into the house, he was riddled with bullets. He collapsed to the floor in a pool of blood, as his horrified family looked on. Tragically, Nathan couldn’t be saved.
The war veteran had been gunned down in cold blood. It stunned his loved ones and they wanted justice. Would the answer lie in the text message Michelle sent as her husband walked out the door?
In 2010, Michelle and Nathan Paet were living in Las Vegas with their four children aged between two and nine. They’d been high-school sweethearts who’d fallen in love while growing up on the small island of Guam in the Pacific Ocean.
Nathan joined the US Air Force and had loyally served his country. He’d fought in the Iraq War, and was working as a supply technician at the Nellis Air Base in Las Vegas. He was proud to wear his uniform and worked hard to make a better life for his family.
Michelle and Nathan, both 28, had only been married four years – but Michelle’s heart had already strayed. She’d started dating a man she worked with at a telemarketing company. Suddenly, life with Nathan wasn’t enough for her.
Michelle’s lover was Michael Rodriguez, 36, and for six months they had a passionate affair. Michael had convictions for forgery, and that air of danger excited Michelle. Together, they came up with a dark plan.
The perfect set-up
Michelle wanted to be with Michael, but she wasn’t willing to walk away from her marriage with nothing. She knew she’d be in line for $400,000 (£303,000) from the military in the event of Nathan’s death – plus there was a life insurance policy worth $250,000 (£190,000). Michelle needed Nathan dead.
Nathan didn’t have a clue that his wife was being unfaithful – or plotting his murder. He continued to work unsociable night shifts to pay the bills and ferried his children to and from school. Nathan’s late working hours gave Michelle and Michael the perfect set-up to carry out their evil plan.
On the night of 1 December 2010, Nathan got ready to go to work. He dressed in his camouflage uniform, as always, and prepared for the night shift.
Outside, Michael pulled up in his black Cadillac and lay in wait. His phone received a message – it was from Michelle.
"He’s rushing to get out of the door. LOL," it read.
Michelle knew what was coming to her husband as soon as he stepped outside, but she did nothing to stop it.
Nathan said goodbye to his family and walked out to the garage. Lurking in the shadows, Michael shot him five times in the back. Incredibly, Nathan found the strength to stumble back into the house where he collapsed in front of his wife and children.
Michelle pretended to be hysterical as Nathan was rushed to hospital and acted distraught when she was told her husband was dead. Then, a few hours later, she sent a smiley face text message to her lover.
The investigation was swift and Michelle quickly crumbled when questioned. She admitted she was having an affair with Michael and they’d plotted together to ‘get rid’ of Nathan for the insurance money. They’d been planning it for two months.
Michael wasn’t so willing to confess. He told police that he was having sex with another woman in a Las Vegas hotel at the time of the shooting, but the woman, an ex porn star, said she’d been offered money by Michael to give him an alibi. He had told her he was about to come into a large amount of cash.
Both Michelle and Michael were charged with Nathan’s murder.
In September 2015, Michael Rodriquez pleaded guilty in a deal to avoid the death sentence. He received life in prison without the chance to appeal or parole.
A month later, at a Las Vegas court, Michelle pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit murder and to first-degree murder with use of a deadly weapon, in order to avoid the death penalty.
Michelle broke down as she faced Nathan’s parents.
"I’m sorry," she wept. "I love you guys and I love my kids, and I hope that this is closure for you."
She still maintained that she’d been persuaded by Michael to go through with the killing and the whole plan had spun out of control. Her cruel text messages suggested otherwise.
In March this year, Michelle appeared in court for sentencing and Nathan’s mother had the chance to speak out. Carmelita Paet is now legal guardian of the four children.
"As a woman of faith, I forgive you because your soul clearly needs forgiveness," she said to Michelle. But went on to describe the ongoing impact of Nathan’s death on the traumatised children.
Despite extensive therapy, they jump at loud noises and still fear their mum could harm them like she hurt their dad. She urged the judge for life without parole.
Michelle wiped away tears. "I was emotionally vulnerable," she said. "I made a huge mistake and a really bad choice and I’m truly sorry."
The judge called the killing ‘incomprehensible’ an‘unfathomable’ and was in disbelief that Michelle had continued to sleep next to her husband at night, knowing he was facing a needless death. The judge couldn’t believe that she’d been powerless to stop the plot.
"You were much more involved than you’re willing to admit," he said. Michelle, now 33, was sentenced to life in prison without the chance of parole.
Michelle threw away years of devotion for a man she’d known just six months.
Four children lost their parents, and a war veteran died simply because Michelle saw dollar signs when she looked at her husband – not the teenage boy who’d loved her since high school, and the father of her children.

LEGAL AID CHIEF ARRESTED WITH RENT BOY IN SHOPPING CENTRE TOILET
We know of one law firm whose boss was in charge of a local council and used every arm of that council

that funding were in part homosexuals with a massive axe to grind against heterosexual men and their families.
One who enjoyed the company of rent boys while another lawyer topped himself after being investigated for massive
legal aid fraud by claiming fathers were abusing their children.
Holyrood is crammed full of feminists and freemasons determined to strip fathers of all their rights
while stealing their homes and bank accounts and then putting their children into homes where their paedo
friends can access now vulnerable chuldren.
A LAW designed to protect women from domestic violence should be relaxed in order to shore up the rights of unmarried fathers following a break-up, a charity has claimed.
Families Need Fathers Scotland is urging MSPs to consider changing the Family Law (Scotland) Act during a rare Holyrood review next week because they say it encourages mothers to make false claims of abuse when there is hostile break up to a relationship.
The charity, which promotes positive relationships between separated fathers and their children, claims Section 24 of the law provides a perverse incentive which creates conflict between unmarried parents.
This section requires courts to pay regard to domestic abuse, when considering parental rights and responsibilities.
In their submission to the review, Families Need Fathers Scotland (FNF) said: "We have heard from many solicitors that Section 24 is the equivalent of putting a button in front of a mother who wishes to exclude the father from her life and that of their children, and asking if she'd like to press it".
While the Act itself gave unmarried fathers better recognition, this clause, which amended the earlier Children (Scotland) Act, has become vulnerable to "casual and opportunistic" abuse, FNF Scotland said.
"It is a fundamental weakness of the act that the legislators of the time viewed the proposals disproportionately through the prism of domestic abuse," the charity said.
"Our experience is that the overall impact of the Act has been to assist a mother who wishes to control or stop the relationship between a non-resident father and their children."
Ian Maxwell, FNF national development manager for Scotland, said the law was out of touch with the Scottish Government's policies on parenting which recognise the importance of two parents in the upbringing of a child.
"We do not condone or excuse abusive behaviour on the part of separated fathers. But we see the other side - fathers who have never been violent and who have been fully involved with their kids before separation being excluded from their lives, by allegations which are not borne out," he said.
"By the time that is addressed it can be six months or more before they can re-establish contact during which time the relationship gets damaged in a way which is not in the interests of the child."
FNF is calling for a change of culture modelled on 'shared care' arrangements in countries such as Australia and Sweden, where arrangements start from a presumption that parents split care equally after separation.
However a submission from Scottish Women's Aid (SWA) to the committee claims the current law is failing to protect women who have left abusive relationships, when ex-partners try to use the children to harass them.
This is more because of the way courts are implementing the law than the act itself, the charity said.
"Evidence abounds, from women from children and young people, from service providers and from solicitors practising family law, that the intention of the act has not been met and that the system continues to put children, young people and their mothers at significant risk," SWA said.
The Justice Committee does not often carry out post-legislative review of existing legislation, but the Family Law Act and the Children Act have been the regular target of petitions to Holyrood calling for changes to protect the rights of unmarried fathers.
Elaine Sutherland, professor of child and family law at the University of Stirling, has written to the committee arguing the repeated petitions are a sign of disquiet in some areas about the current state of the law. She said:"It is worth remembering that an obstructive mother may be motivated by reasons that attract some sympathy, including the fear of resumed or continuing domestic violence.
"However her opposition may have a less commendable cause, like her own resentment arising out of her relationship - or lack thereof - with the child's father."
Elaine Murray MSP, deputy convener of the justice committee, said members were taking advantage of a brief gap in its schedule to carry out post-legislative scrutiny of the family law act.
"There is a perception among some committee members that it is not working as well as it could be," she said.
"It could be useful to give some guidance to the next parliament."
She added: "Where there has been domestic abuse in a family relationship it can be very damaging to any children, and some people will try to get at an ex partner through the children. But if there is evidence that people are being unjustly accused of domestic violence and abusive behaviour then that should be looked at."
The Scottish Parliament's Justice Committee is to discuss the Family Law Act on Tuesday.

Huge rise in domestic violence claims after legal aid clampdown: Figures reveal assault allegations have doubled since ministers axed funding for divorce cases
*Allegations of domestic violence have rocketed over the past two years
*MPs claim rise is a result of government changes to the legal aid system
*Campaigners believe cuts have encouraged separating couples to make false or exaggerated claims of violence in order to avoid divorce costs
*Midlands saw a 92 per cent increase in allegations between 2012 and 2014
Allegations of domestic violence have rocketed over the past two years as a result of government changes to the legal aid system, MPs claimed last night.
New figures reveal that the number of claims of assault in the home have nearly doubled in some areas since Ministers removed all taxpayer funding for divorce cases – except in cases involving verbal or physical abuse.
Campaigners believe the reform introduced in 2013 has encouraged separating couples to make false or exaggerated claims of violence against a partner in order to avoid paying for the cost of a divorce, prompting miscarriages of justice that lead to parents being unfairly estranged from their children.
According to figures released by the Ministry of Justice under Freedom of Information rules, the number of non-molestation orders issued by the courts to protect people from harassment, intimidation or violence has increased by 21 per cent, from 4,925 to 6,101, between 2012 and 2014 in England and Wales.
But in some areas the rise was even higher – there was a 92 per cent increase in the Midlands over the past two years.
Family campaigners fear this has happened because solicitors in certain areas have been encouraging clients to make
claims of abuse.
Separately, police say there has been a 31 per cent increase in the number of domestic abuse-related crimes recorded in England and Wales between 2013 and 2015 – from 269,700 in the year to August 2013, to 353,100 in the year to March 2015. Forces say they are on the verge of being ‘overwhelmed’ by the ‘staggering’ increases.

High Court Judge: Don't always believe claims of domestic violence
Family courts hold the most drastic powers of any tribunal (and that's from a judge)
Last night, Tory MP Andrew Bridgen claimed that the legal aid changes had led to people – usually men – being falsely accused of abuse.
He said: ‘It is obvious that making domestic abuse the gateway for legal aid has caused an explosion in the number of allegations of domestic abuse, many of which may be baseless and made simply to secure legal aid.
‘Domestic violence, of which both men and women are victims, must be taken seriously, but the rise in the number of non-molestation orders is alarming.’
The legal aid changes, designed to cut the £2 billion annual legal aid bill in England and Wales by £350 million a year, were controversial at the time.
The measure was defeated 14 times in the House of Lords before it was finally passed, amid concerns that the changes would deny justice to the poorest in society.
The Ministry of Justice said: ‘We have seen no concrete evidence that our legal aid arrangements have caused any increase in applications for such orders.’
David Gale, of Kids For Cash UK, a family justice campaign group, said: ‘The indications are that a number of large law firms have encouraged false claims of domestic violence for the purposes of fraudulently securing legal aid.
‘It’s time now for the police to be instructed to properly investigate evidenced cases of perjury in the family court.’
|Wife 'killed husband then kept him wrapped in plastic for 18 YEARS' – body was only found after she died
Notice they call the murdering bitch Mrs. if it was the man they would ONLY use
his surname and typical when the mass media report a murder carried out by a women
FULL ARTICLE HERE
A wife is believed to have killed her husband, wrapped his body in plastic in their garden and kept it secret for 18 years.
The mystery skeleton found in plastic sheets in a quiet village have been identified as missing husband John Sabine last seen in 1997.
His body was found last month just three weeks after his own wife Leigh Ann Sabine died aged 74 from cancer.
Detectives investigating the grim discovery say his wife is the 'main suspect' in their probe.
Mrs Sabine had carried on living in the same apartment block in Beddau, near Pontypridd, South Wales, since her husband was last seen in 1997.
His body was found in plastic wrapping in the street called Trem-Y-Cwm three weeks after her death.
Detective Chief Inspector Gareth Morgan said: 'This is an extraordinary set of circumstances and we are working tirelessly to put together the pieces of what is a complex investigation.'
Police say John Sabine, understood to have been a local fireman would now have been 85 years of age.
Mr Sabine was never reported as a missing person despite not being seen for 18 years - and was still listed on the electoral register as living at the same house.
Police later revealed the couple had 'estranged children' who did not list Mr Sabine as being missing.
A spokesman said: 'Their estranged children have been located and informed. Mr Sabine was not reporteed as being missing. The circumstances of where the body was concealed is part of the ongoing investigation.'
A police spokesman said: 'He is believed to have moved to Trem-Y-Cwm with his wife Leigh Ann Sabine in February 1997.
'DNA evidence has confirmed the identity of Mr Sabine, who was last seen in 1997.
'Mrs Sabine passed away on 30th October 2015 and is currently the main suspect in this investigation.'
A post-mortem examination established John Sabine had injuries consistent with an assault.
Neighbours are believed to have found the human remains in grounds at the apartment block.
DCI Morgan said: 'We would appreciate hearing from anyone who knew John and Leigh Sabine and who may have socialised with them or met them back in 1996-1997.
'We would also appeal directly to the community in and around Trem-Y-Cwm to contact us with any information they may have in relation to the plastic wrapping that Mr Sabine was concealed in.'
Police confirmed the body was lying above ground but was wrapped in plastic sheeting.
Neighbour Violet Scott, 75, said: 'It is a complete mystery but I cannot believe the body has been there for all these years.'
Ms Scott added: 'Leigh was a very talkative and outgoing woman but it is hard to comprehend what has happened.
'I didn't know her husband but I know he was a fireman and we all thought he died a dozen or so years ago.
'It could be that she kept his body in her home and then decided to move it when she knew her own end was close.
'It was found on ground between two of the flats next to her home. I can't believe it has been there for all these years.
'Leigh could be very straightforward but it is difficult to think she could have killed someone. She had another man living for for a few years but he left - I don't know what happened to him.
'I asked Leigh if she would ever go back to New Zealand. But she told me: 'No - I could never leave here.'
Police confirmed Mrs Sabine died of cancer and her death was not being investigated by the coroner. Her funeral has already taken place.
A local hairdresser, who asked not to be named, told MailOnline: 'We couldn't believe the police announcement.
'We all knew her. She would come in here and even used to bring us presents at Christmas. We called her "Mad Leigh" because she had her funny ways.
'She had a heart of gold though. She is the last person you would expect to be accused of something like this.
'We knew she had had a husband, and that they were separated. We thought that he had gone away.
'We found out she was ill and sent her a message to the hospital she was at telling her we were all thinking of her. The next day we were told she had died.'
Another neighbour added: 'I've never been into her home or had her to visit me but I saw her in the street and said hello. She was always saying "hello darling", like some people talk.
'I knew that she had come here from Australia or New Zealand. I didn't know her husband as I moved in after he was gone.'
Local resident Sharon Rowlands, 42, added: 'It is terrible to think what has gone on - without any of us knowing. We had no idea there was a dead body there until police arrived.'
| Lottery winner attacked by jealous girlfriend speaks out about 'taboo' of domestic violence against men
Matt Myles, 28, was assaulted by fitness trainer Carla Chamberlain, 24, after he received a Snapchat message from another woman

A lottery winner attacked by his jealous girlfriend after receiving a Snapchat message from another woman spoke about the "taboo" of domestic violence against men.
Matt Myles, 28, was assaulted by fitness trainer Carla Chamberlain, 24, who hit him in the face and grabbed his testicles after a boxing day night out last year.
She was found guilty of two counts of common assault by beating and one count of criminal damage by Hereford Magistrates' Court last month.
Mr Myles told the Mail Online : "The lottery win was the most amazing thing that ever happened to me but ironically it also led to the worst thing that ever happened in my life – suffering domestic abuse at the hands of the woman I loved.
"Domestic violence against men is still very much taboo or perceived as a joke but it’s no laughing matter for the victim."
Mr Myles, who is 6ft tall compared to Miss Chamberlain’s 5ft 7in, said the attack had left him feeling "vulnerable" and "knocked my confidence"
After scooping £1million in the Euromillions in April last year, Mr Myles went on a celebratory round-the-world trip where he says he 'slept with 87 women'.
On his return, he got back together with his former partner Chamberlain.
The couple decided to "make another go" of the relationship but trouble flared following a night out.
On their way back to Mr Myles's home, Chamberlain saw he had received a Snapchat message from another woman.
She raged "various expletives" and said "she would get her own back" by hitting him in the face and scratching his neck.
Mr Myles said: ‘Carla said, “Why the **** are you getting pictures from her? I bet she sends you more than that.”
"She’d just had huge, acrylic glittery nails done and she scratched my face.
"I told her to get off and then she punched me in the face.’
The lottery winner is now in a new relationship with air hostess Tasha Dodds.
Figures show a third of domestic violence victims are male.(Bullshit stats not taking into account
the deranged psychopaths that womens aid never recognise)
Mark Brooks, chairman of the ManKind Initiative which helps these victims, said: "Domestic abuse against men remains one of Britain’s last great taboos.
"Many men won’t get help because they fear they won’t be believed or they’ll be laughed at. In reality when they do come forward they are taken seriously."
