DUBAI – Dubai Police has released a digitally recreated image of a man whose decomposed body was found floating off the coast of Dubai.
Police are hoping the 3D image will help in identifying the deceased. Anyone with information about the deceased is advised to call 901.
According to police, the man was believed to be of Asian origin, and aged between 35 and 45. His remains were found a month ago.
Police considered it a “challenging case” after most of his body was completely decomposed, leaving no DNA or fingerprints to help authorities identify him.
“The remains were severely decomposed due to climatic conditions and corpse erosion as a result of its direct exposure to marine organisms,” said Brigadier Ahmed Matar Al Muhairi, Deputy Director of Dubai Police General Department of Forensics and Criminology.
