He had gone out on the night of 30 March 1996 to go to a nightclub and was found in the ditch in Milton, near Cambridge the following day by a dog walker.

His murder was initially connected to the occult because there had been a full moon on the night that he was murdered. It was said that his body was arranged after his death and that he used to dabble in the occult himself.

His post-mortem showed that he drowned. The police said that although the post-mortem stated that he drowned, they didn't know how he came to be in the ditch.
