Missing man found dead

A missing man was discovered dead in an abandoned pub’s FREEZER 10 years after his disappearance.

Roy Bigg, 67, went missing in 2012, and his corpse was recovered last year at a rundown tavern in Forest Gate, East London.

Police have identified the man as Roy Bigg


In October, terrified builders discovered his remains while excavating inside the former Simpson Pub, and he was identified using dental records.


The structure, once Simpson’s Wine Bar and located near to Forest Gate Police Station, had remained vacant for many years.

Police are now asking anyone who knew Mr Bigg before he went missing to contact them.

“We suspect Roy’s corpse may have been in the freezer for a number of years,” Detective Chief Inspector Kelly Allen of the Met’s Specialist Crime Command stated.

“Speaking with people who knew him will assist us in determining not only his lifestyle and habits, but also when he was last seen.

“If you knew Roy, please contact us; his birthday was September 8, 1944, and we believe he was around 70 years old when he died.

“It doesn’t matter if you’ve known him for a long time or if you only knew him briefly; any information you can provide might be extremely helpful to our investigations.


“We’ve issued a photograph of Roy in the hopes that anyone who knows him would come forward and speak with us.

“If you don’t want to speak to police directly, please contact Crimestoppers anonymously, but whatever you do, please call.”

A spokeswoman for the Met Police added: “Detectives are appealing anybody who knows the guy whose corpse was discovered in a freezer at a derelict bar in Newham to come forward.

“Roy Bigg’s remains were discovered in a freezer on Friday, October 15, 2021, about 15:00hrs.

“The freezer was located in the basement of the former Simpson’s Wine Bar on Romford Road in Forest Gate.

Builders working on the site discovered the body. Roy vanished in February 2012.


“A post-mortem investigation revealed that the cause of death was ambiguous, and Roy’s remains were identified using his dental records.”
