Detectives Investigate Birmingham Car Park Death

Police are investigating the last moments of a man found dead in a car park in Birmingham.

The 39-year-old Sri Lankan was found collapsed in the Bordesley Street car park by a security guard at around 9.15am on February 28 after travelling up from London by coach the night before. 

Detective Sergeant Mick Perkins, from the West Midlands Police Homicide Team of Force CID, said: "Initially the man’s death was treated as natural causes, however a post mortem examination suggested the man had multiple injuries to his chest and pelvis but how he came by these injuries remains a mystery.

"The man got off a coach at the city’s main coach station in Digbeth and walked towards Bordesley Street at around 10.15pm on Friday 27 February. 

"We need to speak to anyone who may have seen him on this journey and can help us piece together his last movements or saw him in or near the Bordesley Street car park that night."

The man had been living in Southall, London, prior to travelling to the city and police do not know why he came here. 

Detectives have failed to find any relatives living in the UK. 

He is described as a Sri Lankan man, 39-years-old, around 5ft 9in tall, of slim build, with a dark beard and he was dressed in a black coat and blue jeans.
