A new appeal has been made to find out the identity of a body found on Exmoor 15 years ago.
The live appeal from the BBC Crimewatch Roadshow has revealed new evidence about the man who was found on the moor.
Police say they believe establishing his identity is key to working out what happened to him.
In March 2002 an Exmoor park ranger found bags containing human remains on moorland off a lane near the village of Winsford.
A police investigation and national appeals - including a reconstruction on Crimewatch that year - failed to help identify the man.
Police say there is evidence he suffered a violent assault before his death sometime between late 1999 and 2000.
Their analysis of satellite photographs suggests the body could have been kept elsewhere for long time before it was buried on Exmoor after May 2001.
The remains were found wrapped in plastic bags and bedding with a number of distinctive items found nearby.
Among them were a pair of Adidas shorts and a 22-carat gold pendant carrying an inscription from the Quran.
A clay head reconstruction of the man was produced in 2002 along with other 3D reconstruction of his body which both give an idea of what he could have looked like.
Police also have a full DNA profile to help solve the case. These are the key questions and evidence they are asking the public to consider:
- Do you know of someone who went missing inexplicably in late 1999/2000?
- Do you have any information on how this man died or how his remains came to be on Exmoor?
- Did you see any suspicious activity on Exmoor around May 2001?
He was in his mid-twenties to mid-thirties
Pigmented skin tone and caucasian bone structure suggest heritage most likely to be North African or Asian sub-continent but could also be Middle Eastern or eastern Mediterranean
He may have only lived in UK for a few years prior to 1999/2000
He may have spent time in southern England in an area between Plymouth and Bude in the west and Poole and Bristol in the east
He was found with a gold pendant with an inscription from verse 255 of the Quran – called The Throne Verse/The Chair
Police believe the pendant was made in Pakistan and is commonly worn in the Gujarat area of India
