Police investigating a body found in a well in Surrey have established that the victim was bound up before being place in the well by a third party around two years ago.
Detective Chief Inspector Cliff Lyons, who leads the investigation, revealed:
Our enquiries continue to try and establish the identity of this male. These enquiries have included reviewing missing person reports but this process may take some time.
I would like to thank the public for their positive response to our appeals so far and specifically those in the local community who have been supportive throughout the disruption caused by police and media in their neighbourhood.
Given the complex nature of this investigation, it is likely that forensic work at the property will continue for a further month as we attempt to secure all available evidence.
