THE body of a man killed at North Acton rail station a month ago has still not been identified.
Police and ambulance crews were called to the station at 1.30pm on Saturday June 26 after the man fell on to the line, possibly from a bridge on Victoria Road which runs above the tracks.
But, he was pronounced dead at the scene and despite fingerprint checks and scouring files at the Missing Persons Bureau, officers are no closer to discovering his identity.
An e-fit image has now been released in the hope someone will know the man who is believed to be aged 35-40.
He is described as white with short, dark, receding hair, facial stubble and brown eyes.
The man was of a slim build with a number of tattoos of dragons on his chest and left shoulder and tribal designs on both upper arms.
There is also an image of a dark red bird on his right shoulder and he was wearing a dark blue jacket, khaki trousers and black canvas shoes.
BTP coroner’s liaison officer Gary Mathias said: "We’ve made extensive enquiries to establish his identity but unfortunately we have so far been unable to do so.
"It's very unusual that we would release an e-fit image of someone in these circumstances but it's very important we contact his family and those close to him to let them know what has happened.
"Our specialist forensic artist created an e-fit of him and we are releasing it in the hope that someone may recognise him, even if they don't know him well, and come forward to us with information that could help us identify him.
"This man may be someone’s son, brother or father. If you know someone matching the e-fit or description we are keen to hear from you so we can identify him and inform his family as soon as possible."
Inquiries surrounding the circumstances of his death are continuing although the incident is not being treated as suspicious.
Anyone with any information should call British Transport Police free on 0800 40 50 40 quoting background incident 261 of 26/06/2010.
