    UK - David Lytton, South Pennines, 'Neil Dovestone', 65-75, Dec'15

    Bizarre story. Hoping this man can be identified, the area must of meant something to him.

    Hopefully a map of the rough area where he was found https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/...843746ff271c0e

    Map that shows just how far he had travelled https://www.google.co.uk/maps/dir/Ea...46ff271c0e!3e0

    UK - Mystery man found dead on Pennines peak

    Baffled police probe mystery death of well-dressed pensioner who travelled
    200 miles from London to lie down and die on Moors murder mountain


    Detectives stumped by the death of a pensioner who lay down on the Moors murder mountain have released CCTV footage in a bid for answers.

    Mystery surrounds the death of the smartly-dressed pensioner who took the train from London to Manchester and climbed a large hill in atrocious weather.

    The man - thought to be around 70 - was wearing slip on shoes and had £130 in cash in his pockets and three train tickets he purchased the day before.

    Despite numerous appeals, police have been unable to identify the man, whose death is not being treated as suspicious.

    Footage taken from December 11 shows the man walking through Manchester Piccadilly Station.

    The Levothyroxine Sodium (standard treatment for hypothyroid conditions) may well be the key to identifying him, assuming it was indeed his own medication.

    The NHS pulls hypothyroid patients in for annual bloodtests and, having established the correct dose, then allows the patient to order 6 prescriptions, each for 2 months supply. So in the very near future there is an elderly hypothyroid male patient from London or the south east who will either not turn up for his annual bloodtest or will not make any further prescription requests. I'd have thought that talking to GPs practices in the area, showing his photo and details of the likely doseage, may produce a result.

    It would also be worth circulating his photo and dose information to pharmacies in the region as this guy will have to have been a regular user of dispensing services.

    snip

    Hey wait, I take levothyroxine -- perhaps it's me! (Sorry! This really is an excellent idea by MTL.)

    The lay-by where the man's body was found by a walker on Saturday, December 12

    JS80440685.jpg dovestone-man-2JPG.jpg

    At 9.07am he bought a ticket to Euston Station where he was seen going to booth three and paying £81 cash for a return to Manchester Piccadilly. It departed at 10am and arrived in Manchester at 12.07pm.

    Once at Piccadilly he appeared to be in no hurry, spending about 50 minutes in various shops at the station - including Boots and M&S - buying food.
    He then spent four and half minutes at the information counter, although enquires have not established why he spent so long there or what he was asking about.

    Then he went to the taxi rank at Piccadilly’s 'rear' entrance near Fairfield Street before coming back into the station and heading out of the station through the front entrance.
