Case

On May 12, 2020, a call came in to police about a car driving erratically on the A4136 road near Coleford in the Forest of Dean at around 10:30 pm. Police located the vehicle a short time later and spoke with a man and a woman, where police discovered two suitcases containing human remains. The car was then searched and both people were questioned and taken into custody. Days later, Gareeca Gordon from Birmingham was charged with murder, and Mahesh Sorathiya of Wolverhampton was charged with assisting an offender.

A week later, police announced that the woman's remains were identified as Phoenix Netts of Birmingham. It is speculated that Netts was killed between April 14 and May 12, 2020 by Gordon, and Sorathiya assisted her between April 25 and May 12, 2020.
