POLICE Scotland have finally identified the man whose body was found at an entertainment complex on Aberdeen’s beachfront a month ago.

He has been named as Andrius Juselis, a Lithuanian national in his 30s who was living in the city.

Police Scotland issued an artist’s impression of the face of the man and launched an international appeal for information last month in a bid to established his identity.

A force spokesman said today: “The father of one’s death is not being treated as suspicious.”

Mr Juselis’ body was discovered shortly after 10 pm on Sunday September 8th, within The Boardwalk, on Aberdeen’s Beach Esplanade. Constable John Urquhart, a member of the enquiry team, said: “This is a very sad set of circumstances and an upsetting time for his family in Lithuania who now need to come to terms with the loss of their loved one.

“They had become increasingly concerned when they had not heard from him.

“However, when they were made aware of the media coverage surrounding the discovery they contacted the Lithuanian Consulate who got in touch with us and we have sadly been able to confirm that the body was that of Andrius Juselis.”

He added: “I would like to offer my thanks to those who contacted us and came forward with possible names, and to the media in keeping this case in the public eye which has undoubtedly helped to solve this mystery.”
