Ipswich: Police Identify Man After Remains Found
Suffolk Police have confirmed the identity of the man whose remains were found on wasteland in Valley Road in Ipswich.
Officers were called at around 11:30am on Monday 3rd October after a group of workmen reported discovering some skeletal remains.
Following forensic archaeologist and anthropologist tests the remains were confirmed as male. Work then began around missing people from the area.
One specific line of enquiry was identified and police can today confirm the remains are that of Walter Victor French who was 65-years-old when he was reported missing from his home address in Kensington Road in Ipswich on the 7th July 1986.
Detective Chief Inspector Neil Luckett said:
"A Post Mortem examination has taken place but we cannot confirm the cause of Walter’s death. The death is currently being treated as unexplained, however there are not thought to be any suspicious circumstances and a file will now be prepared for the coroner.
We continue to liaise with the family of Walter and appreciate their patience and assistance during this difficult time."
