BBC News published this video item, entitled “20-year search for identity of mutilated boy’s body in London river – BBC News” – below is their description.

In 2001 Aidan Minter found the body of a young boy in London’s River Thames. He had been mutilated and, without an identification, the police called him Adam.

Clues led detectives to Nigeria to look for the identity of the boy but a worldwide search failed to discover who he was.

20 years later police are launching a fresh appeal for information, hoping they will be able to find out who Adam was.
