no one knows his name

Who is he and why was his body found where it was? Six months and a lot of detail on, the British cops still don't know. In the morgue, they've given him a name: "Neil." And there was strychnine in his system. He was found on the moors in a very decorous position, this man of 65-75.

"Height 6ft 1in, white, slim build, receding grey hair, blue eyes, large nose which might have been broken"... and he appears to have traveled 200 miles to the spot that would be his last resting place.

No one has come forward to make a coherent tale of it all.

And the incoherence is beguiling.
