THE BODY of a man found in the River Severn on September 25 has been formerly identified as missing man Pavel Zukowski, police have confirmed.
The 29-year-old went missing nine days earlier and was found by a member of the public at Shrawley near Worcester.
A post mortem was carried out yesterday (Tuesday) which identified the man as Pavel. An investigation into the circumstances which led to his death is still underway.
Det Insp Ed Slough said: “Our thoughts are with Pavel’s family at this difficult time and officers will continue to offer them support.
“We do not believe at this time that his death is suspicious however enquiries are still ongoing to determine what happened.”
