PRESS RELEASE – The North Sea Case 01/02/2022.
On 11th July 1994, a male body was found by a Police boat in the North Sea, West of the Island Helgoland. It was brought to the city of Wilhelmshaven in Germany, where an investigation started to identify him and where he was later buried.
The body showed injuries on the head and upper body, and there was evidence of having been weighted down, suggesting there is a possibility of intentional harm. There are also many indications that the man has a close relationship with Great Britain.
Prior attempts to identify him were unsuccessful. However, the case remains open, and we are now appealing for information so that the man can be named, loved ones can be informed, and potential perpetrator(s) can be brought to justice.
Full details of the case, including pictures and artist impressions, can be found here.
