THE Coroner’s Office is appealing for help in identifying a man who collapsed and died in Boscombe on Saturday, March 29.

Andy Lord, coroner's officer, said after the man collapsed behind the Primark store he told a passer-by his name was Christopher, he was 63-years-old and lived locally.

However, despite extensive enquiries, he has not been formally identified and nobody has reported him missing.

He is described as being of average height and build with short greying hair, a grey goatee beard and moustache and has tattoos on both arms. At the time of his death he was wearing a black and grey All Terrain anorak, black jumper, blue jeans and black trainers.

Mr Lord added: “I am sure that somebody locally will know this gentleman and am keen to hear from anyone who may think they know who he is. Anyone with information can contact me via Dorset Police on 101 quoting incident number 29:291.”

Such a shame no body has reported this gentleman missing. Shows the sad state of our society that people still sadly pass as unknown. We haven't progressed much at all in the last 100 years.
Hope someone comes forward who knows him.

It's so sad that a person can drop dead, and not be missed by anybody. I do hope somebody can help identify this gentleman. Who ever you are, may you rest in peace.

You can't show a picture of a dead man in the newspaper - whatever next? The description should be enough for someone to recognise him.

I would suggest asking in all the local shops, as a volunteer in one of the charity shops we get regular customers that pop in. Usually just for a chat and to see a friendly face as a lot of people are lonely. This is so very sad....R.I.P Christopher xx
