Police have named a 40-year-old man who was found lying on a bonfire in the
garden of his cottage.
David Paul Langdon was found on the bonfire in his garden in Wormelow,
Herefordshire, just before 8pm on Thursday.
Three people have been arrested in connection with his death and remain in
custody, West Mercia Police said.
Officers said Mr Langdon was missing since August 4.
Det Chief Insp Dave LLewellin said: ``By naming him now we hope that anyone who
knew him - or just recognised him - will be able to help us fill in the gaps as
to what has happened to him during the 10 days prior to his body being found.''
Officers said they were treating Mr Langdon's death as unexplained and are
awaiting the results of a post-mortem examination.
Forensic searches of the cottage and house-to-house inquiries in the area have
been carried out.
Police have also sealed off an address in the nearby village of Much Birch
where a forensic search has taken place.
