The Somerton Man Case. The body of a man found on an Australian beach close to a major Atomic Testing ground, he was probably poisoned, a copy of the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam and an unbroken Code page found and associated to him. Set against a Cold War background in 1948, was this man a spy? We think so and this blog focuses on the evidence that was left behind and in some cases missed, the Code page, Dry Cleaning numbers, A Poem and a small, torn piece of paper bearing the words TAMAM SHUD.

Somerton Man: KGB search techniques could reveal a clue

This video clip is most interesting, it is an actual film of KGB officers searching Dmitri Polyakov, a Russian GRU General but also in the pay of the CIA for many years.

What caught my attention was the amount of time that seemed to spent on the hands. Those who are familiar with the Somerton Man case would know that when examined he had no marks except for some scratches found between his knuckles, could they have been caused by this type of search?

Comments very welcome!
