Police hoping for identification a year after his body was found
A year after a man was found dead at Nine Elms pier, police have released an efit of the man and are appealing to the public to help identify him.
On 25 May 2010, a white man, aged approx 25-35, was found dead at Nine Elms pier. Police officers from Wandsworth's missing persons unit have tried to identify him but so far have failed to find out who he was.They have now produced an efit to see if anyone has information as they would like to locate and inform his next of kin.
The man is described as a white, of a medium build and approx 5' 10" tall. He had close cropped receding brown hair and blue eyes. At the time of his death he was wearing a grey nylon zip up hooded jacket with the motif 'CAT' on the left breast. He was wearing black combat style trousers with a yellow caterpillar logo on the left middle leg pocket.
In addition, he was wearing a black leather belt with a silver coloured Levi buckle, green Entrek walking boots and black socks. Under his hooded top he wore a black collared T-shirt with a small white Adidas emblem on the breast.
Police found on his body a small matchbox sized Sony radio and a pair of black and silver Panasonic earphones, two cigarette lighters and a black sharpie marker pen.
Police Constable Laurie Waye, from Wandsworth's Missing Persons Unit, said: "We are hoping to hear from anyone who thinks they might have known this man. You may know someone who carried these items or who wore these clothes who is no longer around anymore. Someone, somewhere, must be suffering not knowing what happened to their loved one. If you think that you know who this man is, no matter how much information you have, you may help us piece together his story and finally let his next of kin know what happened to him."
