We are again appealing for help to identify a man who sadly passed away of natural causes at Lincoln County Hospital following a collapse in McDonald’s restaurant in Boston on 11 April, 2018.
The man, who is believed to have been in his late 50's or 60's, locally known as Elliot but investigators have not been able to establish his surname or trace any family members.
We believe he may have a daughter living in Wrangle and Elliot may have originated from the Carlisle area. Elliot was a homeless man who regularly visited McDonald's night and day and often slept near
Aldi - both located in Queen Street, Boston. Elliot also visited the local betting shops. Elliot could often be seen wearing a black baseball cap, was a white man of a medium build, around
5ft 5inches tall, had dark but greying hair and wore reading glasses.
There is CCTV of Elliot in McDonald's it is not of a good quality, so we hope this e-fit image and photo of him at Hospital in life will help people to recognise him.
If anyone who recognises Elliot and knows his surname, or any details about him, are a number of ways to report:
