A man who disappeared 10 years ago was found dead in the freezer of an abandoned bar. Roy Bigg, 67, disappeared in 2012 and his body was recently discovered in an abandoned bar in Forest Gate, London.
His remains were found by horrified builders while he was working on the old Simpson Pub in October and he was identified through dental records . The building, formerly Simpson’s Wine Bar, located next to the Forest Gate Police Station, had been abandoned for many years.
London police are now asking people who knew Bigg to contact them. Detective Chief Inspector Kelly Allen, of the Met’s Crime Squad, said: “We believe Roy’s body may have been in the freezer for a number of years.
Talking to people who knew him will help us establish not only his lifestyle and habits, but also when he was last seen.
“If you knew Roy, please contact us: his date of birth was September 8, 1944, we believe he was around 70 years old when he died,” the entity’s authorities said.
“It does not matter if it has been a long time since you met him, or if you only met him briefly, any information can be of great importance to our investigations,” they added.
A Met Police spokesman added: “Detectives investigating after a man’s body was found in a freezer in a disused bar in Newham are asking anyone who knew him to come forward.
The remains of Roy Bigg were discovered in a freezer around 3:00 p.m. on Friday, October 15, 2021, but it is only now that he has been identified and the authorities are asking for help to investigate what happened to him.
“The freezer was situated in the basement of the building which was formerly Simpson’s Wine Bar on Romford Road, Forest Gate.
“The body was found by masons working on the premises. Roy disappeared in February 2012.”
A post-mortem examination found that the cause of death of the man found dead in the freezer was inconclusive and Roy’s remains were identified through his dental records.
