New bid to identify body found in Welwyn woodland
THIS is a computer generated image of a man whose body was found in woodland in Welwyn more than 16 years ago – and whose family police are still trying to locate.
The unidentified man, known only as the ‘Woodland Worker,’ was found in Puttockhill Wood, near Lockley’s Farm, on the morning of March 27, 1994.
But now officers from the Beds and Herts Cold Case Review Unit are making a fresh appeal for anyone who knew him to come forward.
Thought to be in his 50s when he died, the man is described as white, 5ft 6ins tall and of thin build.
He was bearded and had grey hair.
