■ Nine years on, nobody knows...

Who was he? By Bonny Burrows Nine years ago a man was found dead at Pakenham railway station, and to this day his identity remains a mystery. Cardinia CIU detectives are seeking public assistance to solve the nine-year mystery, and hopefully bring closure to his friends and families. On 14 August 2008 about 9.15pm the man was located deceased on the train tracks at Pakenham railway station. According to police, he was seen walking around the station for about 25 minutes before his death. Cardinia CIU Detective Senior Constable Mick Van Der Heyden said that despite their best efforts police remained stumped as to who the man was. It is also unknown where he was from or how he got to the railway station. “Numerous investigations were undertaken and as yet, the male is still unidentified,” Det Sen Const Van Der Heyden said. Police describe the man as being of Indian appearance and aged in his twenties or thirties at the time of his death. Det Sen Const Van Der Heyden said the deceased was of a thin build with black hair and a small black beard. “The male was wearing a blue and red jacket which has been identified as being discarded either in Pakenham or Doncaster in the months prior to the man’s death,” Det Sen Const Van Der Heyden said. “The jacket had a logo on the front chest which stated “Valley Statesman Rugby League.” Police hope that by releasing
