Appeal launched to identify man found dead in a street in Coventry

AN APPEAL has been launched to find a man who was found dead in Coventry yesterday (Tuesday, March 16).

He was discovered collapsed in St Nicholas Street around 5am.

West Midlands Police officers attended with paramedics but he passed away.

So far police have not been able to identify him, despite extensive enquries.

He was black, aged in his 40s or 50s and was wearing navy jogging bottoms, black trainers and a black hoodie.

The keys and watch pictured, were found on the man.

His death is not currently being treated as suspicious.

Insp Chris Grandison from our force response unit, said: “We really need your help to identify this man as we’ve not been able to make contact with his next of kin and loved ones.

“We’re hoping someone within the local community will know who he is. We believe that he was possibly out jogging so you may have previously seen him in the area.

“If you have any information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, please get in touch.

“We’re desperately trying to establish this man’s identity so we can contact his family.”

Anyone with any information is urged to contact officers via live chat at west-midlands.police.uk or by calling 101.
