The body of a 31-year-old man found in a rural village on the fringes of Bristol could have lain there for several days before it was discovered on Christmas Eve, police believe.
Detectives investigating the murder of Mohammed Abdurezek, who was found with multiple stab wounds in a wooded area in Siston, near Warmley, believe the killers dumped his body after he died.
Police have now launched a fresh appeal in a bid to trace Mohammed's movements in the days leading up to his murder.
Detective Chief Inspector James Riccio, from Avon and Somerset police's Major Crime Investigation Team, said Mohammed is believed to have been in Bristol since the beginning of December.


DCI James Riccio, pictured, says tracing Mohammed's steps before he was killed are key to solving the murder
He had also spent time in the city previously since moving to the UK and has links to Swansea and Newcastle.
Mohammed was found with no ID, mobile phone or personal belongings, but police believe he owned an old Nokia phone.
They are scouring CCTV to trace the vehicle which could have been used to move the body to Siston, asking anybody who has seen a suspicious vehicle to come forward.
Detectives urged anyone who knew or recently saw Mohammed, who also used the nickname Maratu, to come forward in a bid to trace his movements.
He has links to the Easton, Stapleton and St Paul's areas of Bristol, DCI Riccio said.
"We're confident that he didn't die here," he told the Bristol Post at the scene where the body was found.
DCI Riccio said: "Mohammed's body was found on Christmas Eve by local dog walkers, we don't think he died here."
"Perhaps people with local knowledge, or previous knowledge of this location, have used that to deposit the body here.
"We strongly believe people out there in the local community will know why Mohammed was killed and secondly, who did this, and I would urge those people to come forward."
He also urged people who witnessed or heard of any disturbance to report it to police.
Detectives are currently searching private CCTV from homeowners in the area for clues to find his killers.
Gibbs Lane, which is not lit by street lighting, is about 600 yards long with a dozen houses along it.
DCI Riccio added: "If you have seen Mohammed over the last two or three weeks, please come forward, we need to know where he's been living, who his friends are and where he's potentially been working.
"They are key lines of enquiry to try and unpick where he's been and from that, try and understand why someone would stab him."
Mohammed moved to Bristol from Ethiopia about 10 years ago, DCI Riccio said.
Anybody with information should call the Major Crime Investigation Team on 101 and give the call handler the reference number 5216 284 767, or use the inquiry name Operation Neptune.
