Embargoed until 00.01Tuesday, January 24, 2023    Cold case investigators have released a new facial reconstruction image of a man whose body was found in woods more than 11 years ago – in a bid to identify him. The human remains were discovered in remains in woodland near Balmore Golf Club, East Dunbartonshire, on 16 October 2011. See SWNS story SWMRman.  There were no suspicious circumstances surrounding the death but despite previous appeals and extensive inquiries, police have been unable to establish his identity. It’s thought he could have been dead for up to six months before he was discovered. In a fresh bid to solve the case a new facial reconstruction and 3D images of the man's clothing has been released.

It’s a mystery that has remained unsolved for more than 11 years.

But investigators from the Cold Case Unit at Glasgow Caledonian University hope these new computer-generated images of how a man found dead in 2011 will reveal who he was.

The man was found dead near Balmore Golf Club, in East Dunbartonshire, on October 16, 2011.

Police think the man could have died six months before his body was found. He is believed to have been between 25 and 34.

There were no suspicious circumstances surrounding his death, but forensic analysis revealed he had suffered injuries that would likely have reduced his quality of life in the period before he died.

The man was white and European, with light hair and a small build. His body was found wearing light jeans, waterproof shoes, a blue Top Man T-shirt, and a blue zipped cardigan. A bag containing toiletries and chargers was found near his body.

Professor Lesley McMillan, co-director of the Cold Case Unit, said she hoped ‘someone will recognise his clothing or his belongings and help us establish who he is.’

Police Scotland are asking anyone who recognises the man to contact them.
