An artist’s impression of a mystery man who was found dead in a field on the outskirts of Canterbury has been released by Kent Police as part of an appeal to help identify him.
The man’s body was discovered by a member of the public on land close to Hollow Lane, near the A2 crossover, on the morning of February 3.
His cause of death has now been confirmed by a post-mortem as natural causes.
Enquiries have been carried out to ensure he has not been reported missing elsewhere in the UK and forensic testing has also been completed, however officers have not yet been able to identify him.
A new, more detailed, artist’s reconstruction has been put together of the man’s face.
Detective Sergeant Gary Stamp said: “We would like to thank everyone who has been in touch with information about this case already.
“A forensic artist has digitally re-constructed how the man might have looked when alive and we are hoping that this detailed image might be recognisable to those who knew him.”
The man is described as white and in his mid-50s to late-60s. He had short white hair and a short white beard. He was of a slim to thin build and was between 5ft 5in and 5ft 6in tall.
Found with him was a small black suitcase, described as a ‘cabin case’, which contained toiletries and clothes, a book – ‘Clinical Theology: A Theological and Psychological Basis to Clinical Pastoral Care’ by Frank Lake, abridged by Martin H. Yeomans - and an unregistered Oyster card.
Anyone who recognises the man in the image, or has information they think would be useful, is asked to contact Kent Police on 101 quoting SI/ZY/1363/17.
