Bradford body finally discovered

April 16th 2011

A body discovered in a tent near Bradford city centre could have been there for almost a year, according to local police.

The tent’s camouflage and the fact that it was set back from the road resulted in the body remaining undiscovered, officers explained. The deceased is believed to have been a rough sleeper. Following a post-mortem, police said that they are not treating the death as suspicious, but are appealing for information from members of the public.

Det Insp Mark Long said: "Our initial investigations suggest that these are the remains of a rough sleeper, however, we are still working to confirm an identity.

"Having spoken with the pathologist, it is believed that the death could have happened as far back as last summer. We need people’s help to bring together the circumstances which have resulted in this discovery and to work out exactly who this person is. I would, therefore, ask that they cast their minds back to last summer and consider whether there is anything they can remember which could assist us further in our enquiries."

If you have any information that might aid police investigation, please contact West Yorkshire Police on 0845 6060 606.
