A man who was found dead earlier this month has still not been identified – and police are appealing for the public’s help in solving the mystery.

Leicestershire Police say that despite “exhaustive efforts” they have not been able to work out who he is.

The man’s body was found in Braunstone Lane East in Leicester at around 10.30pm on 11 July.

He was pronounced dead at the scene and officers are not treating the death as suspicious.

Police have released an artist’s impression of the man, along with a photograph of a distinctive tattoo, in the hope it will help identify him.

The man, who is believed to have been aged between 25 and 40, is described as white, 5ft 8ins tall, of a slim build, with dark brown hair.

He had a tattoo on his left upper arm, as well as a large vertical scar running from his chest to his abdomen.

The man’s left ear had been pierced, but he was not wearing an earring when his body was found.

When police made the discovery he was wearing a green printed t-shirt, grey Ellesse jogging bottoms, a light grey sweatshirt with Brookhaven written across the chest and a grey hooded jumper.

The man was also wearing a blue baseball cap and khaki coloured trainers with an orange trim.

There was paint on his clothes, face, arms and legs.

Detective Constable Steve Winterton said: “We have carried out extensive enquiries to try and identify this man, but so far, have not been successful.

“We appreciate that this is not the best way to potentially find out about the death of a loved one or friend, and we are sorry for any undue distress it may cause.

“But we need the public’s help to help us identify this man.”

Anyone who recognises the man is asked to contact Leicestershire Police and quote incident 18*325451.
