Two men arrested on suspicion of murder as Wisbech park victim identified

TWO men were this morning arrested on suspicion of murder as police identified the body found in a Wisbech park on Saturday night.

The victim has been named as Erikas Ulinskas, 36, of Cocketts Drive, Wisbech and the two men were arrested by detectives at around 8am this morning.

The men, aged 27 and 22, were arrested in Wisbech and are currently being held in custody at March Police Station.

Detectives had scoured Holmes Park for clues as to the identity of the man, who was found dead there on Saturday night by a member of the public at around 9.10pm.

Police had earlier revealed that the victim had a scorpion tattoo on his upper right arm and a finger tip missing from a previous injury.

The circumstances of his death remain unclear, but his injuries are consistent with assault.

The victim had been described as white, 30 to 40, about 5’8”, weighing about 13 stones, with receding and very short dark hair and a moustache.

He was also wearing size eight brown leather trainers with two Velcro straps across the bridge of the shoe.

The victim had two small scars to his right chest area, a scar to the rear of his head and the tip of his little finger on the right hand is missing (all from previous injuries).

“Any information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, could be very important to this inquiry,” said Detective Chief Inspector Jim McCrorie.
