Police computerised sketch of the dead man

Despite a number of public appeals and enquiries police still don’t know the identity of a man found dead in Linton Park reserve, Rotorua on Monday (5 May).

A computerised sketch of the man has now been created in the hope someone will recognise him and help police to locate his family.

It is important to stress that the composite is a ‘likeness’ so someone who is similar but doesn’t fit the image 100% shouldn’t be ruled out. The man does have a distinguishing mark on his left cheek, which is darker than his skin colour and possibly a birthmark. Although only small, it may be something that would be memorable to a family member or friend.

Detective Sergeant Tony Colby: “It is highly unusual to find ourselves in this situation. The location where he was found would suggest he was local or familiar with the area, but the more time passes without anyone coming forward the more we have to consider that maybe he is from out of town.

“Not every parent is in contact with their adult children on a day-to-day basis but I’m sure every parent would want to know if something happened to their son or daughter, so we are asking everyone to spread the word so that we can do the right thing by this man and his family.”
