The mystery dead man found with only one clue His body was found just as the sun was rising over Beamish Street in Campsie, a mostly working-class suburb. The man, aged over 50 and "of Asian appearance", had died of an apparent suicide outside a unit block, authorities said. He had no wallet, phone or documents of any kind. The only clue to his life was an electronic transport card found in his pocket. The Sydney-wide Opal card is sometimes used by police to help identify deceased people. Opal cards are normally registered to a home or email address, and linked to a bank account. This one, however, was unregistered. Adding to the puzzle, the card had been topped up with cash in a location that did not have security cameras. What is known is that the man's trips always began or ended at a bus stop known as "Dan's Corner", not far from where his body was later found. His final bus journey, on 10 April, took him only about 250m (800 feet). It ended at a stop outside an Asian grocery store. Police made appeals in Chinese-language media in Sydney, but no-one came forward. A post-mortem revealed that he was most likely suffering from multiple myeloma, a type of blood cancer known to cause excruciating pain. The conclusion was based on the discovery of lesions in the man's leg bones. He had also been taking non-toxic levels of paracetamol. He was suspected of being an "unlawful non-citizen" - a term used to describe migrants without legal status in Australia. Police said they were still looking for clues to the dead man's identity. ----- More about the lives of Australia's "unlawful non-citizens" in the article. Sounds very lonely.
