Lincolnshire Police made the appeal after the man’s body was found on the morning of February 1, in the field next to Ropsley Road.

They now need to understand how he came to be at that location, and believe that there may be people who have information about the circumstances of his death who they have not spoken with.

A police spokesman said: “We are proactively confirming his identity as 47-year-old Lithuanian national, Audrius Kubilus, and sharing his image to help people recognise him.

"We know that this image is not very crisp, but it is the only one we have access to, and should still be clear enough for him to be recognised by those who know him.

“His next of kin have been informed.”

It is believed he was of no fixed address, and at present, they have no further information about which part of the country he may have spent time in.

The spokesman added: “We are appealing for anyone who knows him and can give us an insight into his life to come forwards. This would include employers, colleagues, friends and acquaintances.

“We would also like to thank everyone who has so far come forward with information; the help from our communities has been a huge benefit to our investigation.”

The force had appealed internationally to try and identify the man and put out their messages in Polish, Latvian, Lithuanian and Russian.
