    Case History

    Remains were found in an old makeshift camp in the woods. Believed to be a vagrant that lived at that location. There are suggestions that the male may be eastern European. It is possible that he may have suffered from a medical condition that would have led to neck pain and ear ache, and he may have walked with a limp. Volunteers found the unidentified body two years ago while clearing litter from the woods on Petersham Common between Star and Garter Hill. They came across a human leg bone with a shoe and sock still attached. More human remains were found nearby in a sleeping bag.
