It's a week since 41 year old Tinh Van Tran's body was discovered near the Whitehall golf course.

Detectives say his death is still a mystery - they don't know how he died or how what he was doing in the area.

DCI Ceri Hughes said: "We have managed to source a picture of Tinh Van Tran and it is important for our investigation that people are able to put a face to a name.

"This will hopefully help us to identify the man's family who we believe are in Vietnam, and we hope they will be able to tell us what he was doing here in south Wales.

"We are still appealing for anybody who may have known him or who thinks they saw him to come forward.

"Tinh Van Tran was discovered fully clothed - a coat had been carefully placed over his top half.

"There was no effort to conceal his body which had been laid just off the road. We do not believe he died at that location, and think that those who put him there wanted him to be found.

"I would like to make a direct appeal for those involved to come forward".
