London police are appealing for the public’s help to identify the person responsible for the death of a man whose body was found in a freezer in an empty pub after he had been missing for almost a decade. In a statement released on Friday, the Metropolitan Police Service said Roy Biggs’ body was discovered in October 2021 in the basement of a building that was once a wine bar. It was believed to have been in the freezer for several years before being found by construction workers working on the site. He was identified through his dental records.
The Metropolitan Police believe Mr Bigg was 70 when he died. An autopsy revealed that the cause of death was unclear. Despite previous efforts, police are still searching for the person responsible for Roy Bigg’s murder.
“It has now been more than two years since Roy was found. Although our investigations and previous media appeals have provided us with information about Roy’s life, we still need your help to find out who is responsible,” Detective Chief Inspector Kelly Allen said in a statement.

Authorities said Mr. Bigg disappeared in February 2012. They want to know where Mr Bigg was between 2012 and 2021, when there were no confirmed sightings of the man they believe was murdered. Officials are offering up to 20,000 pounds, or more than $24,000, for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of anyone responsible for Mr Bigg’s murder.
“Anything you can tell us can be invaluable in helping us understand what happened,” the Metropolitan Police said. “An autopsy determined the cause of death was inconclusive and Roy’s remains were identified through his dental records,” the statement continued.
