Police have released an artist’s impression of a mystery man who was found poisoned to death on the moors between Holmfirth and Greenfield.
His body was discovered close to Dovestone Reservoir just off the A635 Holmfirth Road not far from Greenfield last December.
Now police have dubbed Neil Dovestone after the reservoir on Saddleworth Moor and the fact that his identity remains unknown.
CCTV footage shows him walking through Manchester Piccadilly train station on December 11.
The man was wearing a brown heavy jacket, blue jumper, white long sleeve shirt, blue corduroy trousers and black slip-on shoes.
He is described as being white, slim, having a receding hairline with grey hair to the side and back and a large nose which may have been previously broken, and was clean-shaven.
When the man’s body was searched he had money and three train tickets.
One was from Ealing train station to Euston which was bought at 9.04am from the ticket office on Friday December 11, 2015 and the other tickets were returns from Euston to Piccadilly, bought at 9.50am the same day.
According to reports, a post-mortem examination revealed that he died from strychnine poisoning.
