Kent Police detectives are taking the unusual step of releasing a computer generated image of a man who was found dead in a field on the outskirts of Canterbury.


The man’s body was discovered by a member of the public on land close to Hollow Lane, near the A2 crossover, on the morning of Friday 3 February, 2017.

His cause of death is awaiting test results; however it is being treated as non-suspicious.


Despite lengthy enquiries, officers have not yet been able to identify the man and are hoping the public can help.

The man is described as white and in his mid-50s to late-60s. He had short white hair and a short white beard. He was of a slim to thin build and was between 5ft 5in and 5ft 6in tall.

Found with him was a small black suitcase, described as a ‘cabin case’, which contained toiletries and clothes, a book – ‘Clinical Theology: A Theological and Psychological Basis to Clinical Pastoral Care’ by Frank Lake, abridged by Martin H. Yeomans - and an unregistered Oyster card.

Detective Sergeant Gary Stamp said: `As part of our enquiries we are publishing a computer generated image of the man, shown left, as he would have looked prior to his death.

`If anyone recognises the man from the image, or has any information that they think would be useful, Kent Police would very much like to hear from them. Please contact Kent Police on 101 quoting reference number SI/ZY/1363/17.
