Detectives in Cambridgeshire are hoping that someone in occupational health
can help with a murder investigation.
The remains of an unidentified man were found in Upton, near Peterborough,
on 21 December last year. The man had been shot and repeatedly stabbed before
his body was dumped in a field north of the A47, where it was set on fire.
Two partially-burnt memos were found near the body, one of which appears to
be from ‘Armstrong’ and is addressed to ‘Talbot’. It appears to be an OH
appointment to which the patient was required to bring a urine sample and a
Detective Superintendent David Hankins, who is leading the murder enquiry,
said: "We believe the victim was between 30 and 45 years old, short,
stocky, with short dark hair and wore size eight or nine shoes. He has damage
to his two front teeth. He appears to be white, but DNA tests suggest he may
have been Asian or Middle-Eastern."
"Maybe someone will be able to tell us where the memo came from or who
Talbot or Armstrong are."
Anyone with information should contact Cambridgeshire Police on 01733 563232
or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
