POLICE are appealing for help to trace the next-of-kin of a 64-year-old man who was found dead in Lowestoft.

John Edward Piper was found at a property in Ipswich Road yesterday at around 7.20am and it is thought he died at some point over the weekend.

He was known to travel around for his work and previously lived at Aylsham Road, Norwich, until about two weeks ago.

At this stage there are no suspicious circumstances surrounding his death however police have not been able to trace his next-of-kin.

Officers believe he may have two children and that at least one of them may have links to the Gainsborough area of Lincolnshire.

Anyone with information should call coroner’s officer Steve Bignell on 01986 835167.
