UK Newspapers, Always A Hoot

From the London Times:
Police found elderly woman's body, bound with duct tape, in her London bedroom and are treating death as suspicious.
Suspicious? Ya gotta love the way British newspapers use language. Is there some alternative explanation? Did they think maybe she engaged in some kinky sex and her lover had a mental pause, stepping out for some fish and chips and neglecting to release her?

It's a funny old world, even amid tragedy.
