Police have named a 29-year-old homeless man, who died in a Norwich city centre subway last week, as former Thetford resident Sergiusz Meges.
Sergiusz, who had previous addresses in both Norwich and Thetford, had a Polish and Ukrainian background but had recently been homeless in the Norwich city centre area.
He was last seen in the city’s St Stephen’s subway at around 8.45pm last Tuesday (June 9). It is thought he was wearing several dark coloured tops, including a dark grey hooded top.
Detective Chief Inspector Tracey Little, from the Joint Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team, has renewed her appeal for witnesses.
She said: “We believe there are other significant witnesses who have not yet made contact with us. This includes a couple in their late 20s/early 30s who were leaving the subway at around 8.45pm on Tuesday 9 June, out of the St Stephen’s Road exit. They would have passed a woman heading into the subway in the opposite direction.
“In addition, we continue to appeal to the male teenager, possibly a college student, who passed Sergiusz in the subway at around 5am and later returned to buy flowers from the flower stall by the subway to leave inside.
“It is important to both the investigation and to Sergiusz’ family that we find out exactly what happened to him. Even if you believe your information may be insignificant, anything that helps us to piece together Sergiusz’ final movements could help us find out what caused his death.”
Police have isued a poster appealing for witnesses to come forward.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Major Investigation Team on 101.
