London plane fall man identified as Jose Matada
April 11, 2013, 17:36 GMT
A man who fell to his death in west London from the undercarriage of an aeroplane has been identified.
The body of 30-year-old Jose Matada was found in Portman Avenue, Mortlake, in September but his identity has remained a mystery until now.
Police originally thought he was Angolan due to the currency found on his body but have established he was in fact from Mozambique.
A Sim card found in his pocket was used to help establish his identity.
Detectives analysed the card found and rang the phone numbers that were stored on it.
Mr Matada's body was found soon after a flight from Luanda, Angola, flew over the residential area which is on the Heathrow flight path.
He was not a member of the crew or a passenger.
A post-mortem examination found Mr Matada died from multiple injuries. An inquest into his death has been opened and adjourned.
Officers are trying to get in touch with his next of kin
