Police Fail to Identify British Man who Lay Dead in Tent for Months
Police Fail to Identify British Man who Lay Dead in Tent for Months. A British man, after his death, presumably went unnoticed in a tent in Great Britain for a year.
The police are not sure who the man is, but a driving license has been found on the side of the road.
The body of the man was found last year on August 15 near the town of Weston-super-Mare, reports the BBC.
The police think it’s a man from Birmingham who was about 59 or 60 when he died. He would be called Peter Thomas Harrison and worked as a driver in the area where he was found.
The police did not manage to track down the relatives, and that is why the authorities are now approaching the media. It was challenging to identify the man because the body was in a far-reaching state of decomposition.
There were several documents in the tent, including a newspaper that was already one year old at the time.
“We would have preferred that his relatives had not come to his death in this way,” a police spokesman acknowledged. “This is a very tragic case of a man whose death is not reported.”
