Police still don't know who a man found dead in the grounds of an empty building three months ago was.

They are reissuing an e-fit of the man in the hope that someone who knew him will recognise him ahead of an inquest into his death next week.

The body was found at 6 Morland Road, Addiscombe at around 3pm on May 8. The death is being treated as non-suspicious.

The man was black, of medium build and around 6ft tall. He had short black and grey hair and a full black and grey beard.

He was wearing a black sweater, brown shirt, blue jeans with a brown belt and black boots. He also had a green t-shirt with him.

His clothes were clean and police don't think he had been sleeping rough. A small black bag was found nearby.

Croydon CID Detective Chief Inspector Sian Thomas urged anyone with information to come forward to help police trace the man's family or next of kin. They hope someone from Addiscombe or surrounding areas might recognise him.

She said that he had no identification with him but Croydon CID have reason to believe he was renting accommodation and had recently lost his job, probably in Croydon or South London.

She said: "An inquest into his death is due to take place next week and it would be terribly sad if we were unable to establish who this man was."

Police are particularly interested in any landlords who had a tenant matching the description who may have gone missing around that time or who had not paid the rent.

Anyone with information should call Croydon Missing Persons Unit on 020 8649 0016 or 101. All calls with be treated in confidence.
