DETECIVES are still trying to unravel the unexplained death of a 30-year-old in the streets of London’s East End nearly a month ago.
They have renewed their appeal today for witnesses who may know or why Slovak migrant Jozef Alexy met his death at Cleveland Way, off Mile End Road, at 3am on November 9.
He was found collapsed on the pavement. An ambulance crew tried reviving him, but he died in the street before they could get him to the Royal London Hospital nearby. A post mortem carried out the next day was inconclusive.
An inquest opened at Poplar Coroner’s Court on November 12 and was adjourned to December 15.
