Detectives investigating the discovery of the body have issued pictures of a jacket and a two bracelets similar to those found in the area.
The black “dare2be” jacket and bracelets – one of which is thought to be a ‘Kara’ worn by Sikhs – were worn by the man before he died, along with a navy blue George at Asda T-shirt and dark-coloured tracksuit bottoms.
The man lay undiscovered for at least three years until a road worker madet he grim discovery at the side of the eastbound entry sliproad of junction four of the M54, near Telford in Shropshire.
A full DNA profile has been drawn up and officers believe he was between 5ft 7ins and 5ft 11ins, aged between 30 and his late 40s.
Det Ch Insp Neil Jamieson, who is leading the investigation, said the cause of death was still unknown.
We are keeping an open mind as to how the man came to be in such a location and how he died; however, I cannot rule out that he may have been subjected to a crime, and that is something the public can help me with.
The metal bracelets are obviously a line of inquiry and as such we have been in contact with our Sikh community locally to share this and again ask for any information as to who this man is.
It is essential that we do all we can to identify him and return him to his family and loved ones.

He urged anyone who thinks they may know who the man was to contact officers at the West Mercia Police and Warwickshire Police Major Investigation Unit based in Telford by dialling 101.
