Detectives investigating the sudden death of a man in Preston are asking for the public’s help in identifying him.
Emergency services were called to The Guild in Fylde Road at 7.19am on Wednesday 9th February following reports a man had sadly been found deceased outdoors.
His death is not being treated as suspicious and a file will be passed onto HM Coroner in due course.
Officers have been working to identify the man so his next of kin can be informed. As yet those enquiries have proved unsuccessful.
He is described as white, 5ft 11ins tall, approximately 40 to 50-years-old, of a slim to average build with a slim face, with very short balding black/grey hair, a receding hairline, bushy grey and black eyebrows and a shaven beard with slight stubble to the chin.
He has a tattoo on his right forearm of a devil/demon with wings and on his left forearm he has a tattoo of a skull with purple detailing which has a black ponytail and a black goatee beard.
He also has scarring to his right shoulder, left knee and left ankle, which may be the result of surgery.
DS Lisa Hough, of Preston CID, said: “This man has died in very sad circumstances. Despite our best efforts we have been unable to identify him at this time or inform his next of kin. That is why we are now asking for the public’s help.”
“If you know who this man is or who his friends or associates were then I would ask that you please get in contact with police.”
