Ipswich Skeleton Belonged to Man

Detectives investigating the discovery of a human skeleton at a building site at Ipswich have confirmed that it belonged to a man.

The skeletal remains were unearthed in Valley Road, Ipswich on Monday 3 October by some builders working on some new homes.
 
Officers excavating the site have discovered further remains, which are all believed to be from the same person. Clothing has also been found, including an item of footwear and outer clothing.
 
Detective Chief Inspector Neil Luckett said:
 
“I can confirm that the remains are male but enquiries are still ongoing to identify his age. We are in the process of piecing together information in order to ascertain the identity of the man and how he came to be here. His death is being treated as unexplained at this time.
I am still keen to hear from anyone who can provide any information about the site and its history and would ask them to contact the Major Investigation Team.”
 
If anyone has any information in relation to the site or how the remains came to be there they are asked to contact the Major Investigation Team at Suffolk Police headquarters on 01473 613500.
