Photo released following suspicious death of London Colney man
DETECTIVES investigating the unexplained death of a London Colney man, whose body was found on Saturday, have released a photo of him, in a bid to work out his last movements.
Daniel Spires, also known as Danny, from Cotlandswick, was found in a wooded area near Bradmore Green, Brookmans Park.
The 69-year-old’s body was found by a member of the public, at around 1.45pm. It is believed he may have died a number of months ago.
An initial post mortem has proved inconclusive.
Officers are now trying to piece together his last movements to try and establish what happened to him.
Detective Chief Inspector Mark Ross, from the Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit, said: “We are releasing a photo of Danny in the hopes it will help jog someone’s memory about where they might have seen him last. It is possible they know him by sight rather than by name, as he is a long-established Hertfordshire resident.
“It may also help someone remember some information about him which could be vital to our investigation.
