Manchester police chief Michael Todd is found dead at bottom of cliff

Here's a fishy little story, especially fishy because Todd was investigating CIA "rendition" flights. You may have seen them in your travel agent "Come to Sunny Gitmo for a 3 Year all-inclusive Waterboarding Holiday" anyway, apparently Todd had "personal problems" and "personal letters" to his family were found. Well, call me a conspiracy nut but I have this theory about suicides like this - they ain't fucking suicides! Just like Lee Harvey Oswald wasn't a lone gunman, just like 9/11 was an inside job and just like David Kelly's murder. Humanity is like a nice juicy red apple with a colony of evil worms living in the core.

His body was discovered at the bottom of a cliff in Llanberis, north Wales.

Manchester police chief Michael Todd is found dead

Suicide is said to be one line of inquiry police are investigating.

It is understood Mr Todd, 50, faced personal problems and personal letters addressed to his loved ones are believed to have been found.

However, Greater Manchester Police refused to comment on a BBC report that notes to Mr Todd's family were found on his body.

A police spokesman said Mr Todd went missing on Monday night while walking in Snowdonia.

Rescue teams found a body at Bwlch Glas, an exposed area on Snowdon.

Police said the body had not been formally identified, but they "believe" it is Mr Todd.

Deputy Chief Constable Dave Whatton said: "Yesterday our chief constable Michael Todd was off-duty walking in Snowdonia.

"Last night we became concerned for his welfare and as a result searches started to find him.

"These searches have continued today and unfortunately this afternoon a body has been found.

"I believe it is Michael but we have not been able to formally identify him at this time."
