On the first of December 1948, a body of a man was located along the seawall of Somerton Beach, just near Adelaide in South Australia.

At first, the police thought it was going to be a straightforward matter, but as the weeks and months went on, it became apparent that this case was anything but straightforward… To this day we don’t know who he is, we don’t know where he came from and we don’t know how he died.
