The family of Matthew Symonds from Swindon have paid tribute to the 'kind and polite' man as investigation into his death continue.
Mr Symonds was found dead at a waste facility in Avonmouth on 1st August after his body was transported with commercial recycling waste from the centre of Swindon.
His grandmother, Susan Symonds and aunt Rachel Symonds, have paid the following tribute to Matthew:
“The whole family are shocked and saddened by the sudden death of Matthew in such circumstances.
We remain distressed about the way it happened – it is a tragedy and appears to have been a terrible accident. He will never be forgotten.
Despite his hard life and upbringing he was a good lad who was kind and polite. He loved to talk and would continue until in the end you had to tell him to be quiet.
The loss of his mum had a massive impact on him. As an only child he was devoted to his mum Madeline who sadly died in September last year. Due to the post mortem and police investigation, it has not been possible to make any funeral arrangements yet.”
