South Wales Police plea over death of Tinh Van Tran

Mystery surrounds the death of a Vietnamese man whose body was found near a Cynon Valley golf club, as an appeal is launched to find his family.

Tinh Van Tran, 41, was discovered fully clothed, lying on his back and covered with a coat by a member of the public a week ago near Whitehall Golf Club.

Detectives believe he died elsewhere and his body was dumped.

South Wales Police are investigating possible links Mr Tinh had with criminal gangs or drugs.

His family is believed to be in Vietnam.

Det Ch Insp Ceri Hughes said as well as tracing the family, police wanted to find anyone who might know about his death.
