Police appeal for help after man's body found in River Soar, in Leicester
Police have appealed for help in tracing the final movements of a man whose body was found in the River Soar in Leicester.
Paul Shepherd's body was spotted in a stretch of the water near Frog Island by a member of the public on Saturday, October 20.
Police are now trying to piece together the 33-year-old's movements.
The force released a photograph of Mr Shepherd, who lived in Groby, and urged people to contact them if they had any information about his movements prior to his death.
A post mortem examination has been carried out and found no obvious signs of injury.
Detective Constable David Tunnicliffe said: "Since Mr Shepherd's body was found we have been carrying out various inquiries to retrace his steps, including looking at his mobile phone records, speaking to family members and friends and looking at CCTV in the area.
"We have found that the last time Mr Shepherd used his mobile phone was on Saturday, October 6, and later that night he withdrew a small amount of cash from a cash point in Narborough Road.
"We are urging members of the public to look at the picture of Mr Shepherd.
"Do you know him? Do you know where he was in the days leading up to his body being found? Did you see him near the river or in the Leicester area?
"Any information you have could help us so please get in touch so we can piece together the events that led up to his death."
