The body of the Hungarian national was discovered at around 11am on a Saturday morning late last month, behind the parade of shops in Guildford Road, which includes Enzo’s wine bar and the former Blockbuster video shop.

Detectives are now trying to establish the circumstances that led to Mr Mihaly’s death, and are keen to speak with anyone who may have either seen him or talked to him.

He was last sighted alive on the evening of  Friday, July 25, in Horsell. Mr Mihaly, who was from Surbiton but worked locally, was drinking at The Cricketers pub in Horsell Birch for two hours from 5pm.

He was subsequently captured on CCTV at 7.20pm at the Co-op store in Horsell High Street.

When last seen, Mr Mihaly was wearing cream/beige shorts with a brown belt, a black T-shirt and grey trainers.

He is also thought to have been carrying a yellow-hooded top and a black-and-green rucksack.Detective Sergeant Adam Ramiz, investigating the death, explained that officers were out in the Guildford Road area of Woking last Friday evening to ask residents if they remembered seeing Mr Mihaly the week before.

He said: “We needed to ascertain how Mr Mihaly ended up in the location where he was found, and where he may have been in the hours between 7.20pm on Friday night and 11am the following morning.

“I am hoping that  anyone who may recognise the deceased – either from his photograph or from the description of what he was wearing – and who may have spotted him, will be able to help us piece together his last known movements.

“Please call Surrey Police on 101 if you have any information whatsoever.”

A post-mortem has been carried out on Mr Mihaly, but as yet a cause of death has not been established.

Further toxicology tests are due to take place and it may be some weeks before the results are known.

Anyone who may have any details that could help with the investigation is asked to call Surrey Police on 101 (quoting ref 45140062500) or by using the online reporting system at
