POLICE are not treating the death of a man whose body was found on an industrial estate in Ford as suspicious following a post-mortem.
The man has been identified as Ben Farr, 28, of Stonehouse Drive, St Leonards.
A post-mortem examination revealed he died from crushing injuries. His family have been informed.
Police were called shortly before 9am on Tuesday (April 22) to reports a body had been found at the Rudford Industrial Estate.
Detective Inspector Jim McKnight said: “It is likely that Ben’s body was brought to the site by lorry having been taken from a commercial refuse bin.
“The refuse bin could be from a number of locations but is likely to be from a coastal location in West Sussex.”
DI McKnight added: “His death is being treated as unexplained and the investigation is ongoing into the circumstances. We are appealing to anyone who may have seen or heard from Ben from April 15 to contact police with information as we are trying to build up a picture of his movements.
“Ben had links to St Leonards and Hastings and was also known to frequent the Brighton area.”
