    Looks more like Adisham Road. He's in the field on thee left looking towards the woods on the right. Newby here :)

    Do police release photographs asking people to identify individuals they think are witness to a crime these days?

    Personally I think he's centre stage in their list of prime suspects.

    Seen in a relevant location to the crime could point towards an area he has been sleeping rough.
    Story referencing police running into Woods 3 miles from scene today could have been as a result of a tip he may have shifted to that location.
    Police would only say there were no other incidents in the vicinity when asked what that was in relation to.

    Not usually.
    But they might if they thought somebody is in danger.
    It's possible he had contact with the murderer, maybe hitched a lift with him, maybe he was in the park when the crime occurred and saw everything.
    It's possible that the people who discovered her body described a man with a similar appearance being present at the time.
    He's not a suspect unless Kent police say he is a suspect.

    It might be significant depending on his direction of travel and mode of travel, spinney lane runs out of footpath near Cooting Rd. It would be unusual to travel along the verge by foot, certainly do-able but might be considered strange.

    What would the opportunities be for hitch hiking on that road?

    Dash cam, of course - makes total sense if he's walking up Pond Lane and has to step onto the grass verge to let a car past. Seems like the most obvious explanation. If he's in the location we're guessing at (junction of Pond Lane / Spinney Lane), the light behind him looks a little pinky / orangey which makes me think it's likely either early morning or evening but hard to tell.

    I wouldn't imagine any to be honest, what I noticed days ago is the gap leading directly into a field on Spinney Lane and also Pond Lane could be used to travel back... take your pick kind of thing. A person could easily use such routes as shortcuts from the area where JJ was found. You can see now why LE mapped out the perimeter as it were.

    Maybe the perp was heading back to the train station?

    I also thought it could be early morning or evening, would go for morning rather than evening.

    Think there could be good opportunities along the B2046.

    He's been ID'd and apparently Kent Police says it is no longer appealing for information in relation to him at this time. This according to a news site....

    and...

    JMO But I'm not convinced he's anything to do with it. Why would he return the following day when its all over the news and the area is crawling with police?

    Wonder whether this mean they have found him and are questioning him or have found him and realise he was not involved?

    He might not have been returning,he could have been hiding overnight somewhere and trying to leave the area the next day.

    I think it might be open to interpretation that one... time will tell.

    Glad to hear he has been identified quickly but a shame that photo had to be splashed across the news - if this young man is innocent then I expect the police make full statements as such to clear up the matter.

    Does seem odd that a perpetrator would be in the vicinity the following day but I guess it does happen.

    Police haven't said their usual "helping with enquiries" or "has been eliminated from enquiries" statement yet about this person so I guess that is in progress.

    Take your point and I had considered that but it would seem an awful long time to hang around in such close proximity to the scene of the crime. Doesn't add up to me at all.
