Detectives investigating the murder of a man kidnapped from Stamford Hill in London, and whose remains were later found in a Northamptonshire field, are appealing for help and information.

The body of Polish national Andrzej Kulesza, aged 27, was found in near Rothersthorpe village, close to Junction 15A of the M1, on Monday 25 April this year.

A post-mortem examination was conducted but failed to establish a cause of death.

Andrzej had been reported missing to Tottenham police after being last seen leaving his home in Stamford Hill N16 at about 8am on Saturday 18 September last year.

He went out to buy milk and bread at the local shop but never returned home.

Detectives believe he was kidnapped.

Shortly afterwards the victim's girlfriend began receiving ransom demands.

She paid a quantity of cash but Andrzej was not returned and all telephone calls ended on Tuesday 21 September. The victim's girlfriend then alerted police.

On Monday 25 April, a woman walking her dog found bones in the field near Rothersthorpe.

Anyone who can assist should call the incident room on 020 8358 0200; if you wish to remain anonymous please call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

A 22-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of kidnap and murder on 9 June.
