The body of a man found in woodland two years ago still hasn't been identified, despite worldwide enquiries.
His remains were discovered near Canonbie in Dumfries and Galloway, but little more is known about him.
The police have always thought he could be Italian, or have links to Europe, but inquiries across the continent have drawn a blank.
Detectives here though haven't given up hope of solving the mystery of who he is and why he died.

Police are investigating after a man indecently exposed himself to a 74-year-old woman in Dumfries.
The incident happened as she walked along a cycle path near the A75 overpass in the town, at around 10am on Friday 14th December.
She described the man as in his 20's, slim, wearing a navy blue hoody and tracksuit bottoms, which had red piping up the side.
The man left in the direction of Heathhall.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Dumfries and Galloway Police.
