A MAN who police wanted to trace as part of their investigation into the death of a missing teenager has come forward.
But officers have ruled him out of the inquiry into how 17-year-old James Dollery died, it was revealed today.
James's body was found behind a taxi office in Waterloo, less than a quarter of a mile from his home at Sunnymead, on Tuesday afternoon.
The man had been seen on the waste ground at 12.10am on Tuesday.
He was seen poking the earth with an umbrella. He went away, but later returned.
A West Yorkshire Police spokeswoman said he had approached police yesterday and had no link with the inquiry.
James went missing in mid-November, but detectives believe he had been dead for just two weeks.
Officers are now trying to piece together his movements over the missing two months.
It also emerged yesterday that James had suffered a broken spine.
However, those injuries may be consistent with a fall from the 20ft-high banking overlooking the area where taxi staff made the grim discovery.
Further post-mortem results may give detectives more clues.
James's body was found behind Tandem Taxis on Wakefield Road at about 4.15pm on Tuesday.
A 22-year-old Huddersfield man arrested in connection with James's death on Thursday afternoon has been released on police bail pending further inquiries.
James's grieving mother Pauline, father Clive and sister Ella have appealed for help to get to the bottom of the mystery.
Anyone with information should phone police on 01484 436659.
