The body of Lee Balkwell has been reburied this morning, after being exhumed for a post-mortem examination.
Detective Inspector Janine Farrell, of the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate, said:
A man's body has been exhumed from a cemetery in Essex as part of a new investigation into his death. The body of Lee Balkwell was found trapped under a cement mixer in Upminster in July 2002.
The original police investigation found his death was accidental. But, last year, the Independent Police Complaints Commission found the inquiry was "seriously flawed".
