MISSING PERSON: Can you help identify this man?


**UPDATE 23/01/2013: After months of tireless investigation, detectives have identified the man as a Swedish national and repatriated his remains. Family members contacted police in Lulea, in northern Sweden, after reading the story in a local newspaper. The death is not being treated as suspicious.**

Investigators confirmed the man’s identity using DNA technology.

Victorian Police are requesting assistance to identify a man who was fatally hit by a train at East Camberwell Station on the 14th September 2012.

Extensive inquiries made by Melbourne investigators to date both interstate and internationally have failed to yield any clues as to whom the unidentified man be.

As Police are no closer to establishing his identity, and with no-one coming forward to report him missing, Police now believe this young man may have been an international traveller.

Futher information which suggests he may not have been local to Melbourne was that he appeared unfamiliar with the Myki Card system and was wearing a pair of jeans labelled “Crocker”, which are believed to be from Sweden.

According to Senior Constable Leah Bound, it was believed the male stepped out of an alcove into the path of an incoming train.  His death has not been treated as suspicious.

He was found to be carrying the following items:

• An unregistered Myki card
• A black wallet containing a piece of paper with a number of eight digit combinations written on it.  No identification was contained inside.
• A black, pocket-sized note book with the front pages torn out
• A blue pen
• A Post-It note with train times and speeds.

He was also wearing an athletic brand t-shirt, with an athletic brand jumper, an additional black and yellow jumper and a black hooded jumper with a white stripe.
