John Dick Wiki – John Dick Biography
Police had hunted John Dick of Suffolk after he disappeared in November after being wanted in connection with a stabbing that resulted in a victim being seriously injured.
The remains of a wanted ex-Marine reported missing for ten months have been recovered from a building site.
He was 38 years old.
Father-of-two John had bought a train ticket to Harwich when he was last seen on November 30, and the last confirmed sighting was of him disembarking a train at Dovercourt station, Essex, that day.
The 13-year veteran had been classified as ‘high-risk’ by police after linking him to a severe assault following a stabbing in Thetford, Norfolk, the day before his disappearance.
His sister, Amy Hooper, said John had been ‘under an extraordinary amount of stress in the weeks leading up to November 30.
She said: ‘We’ve been living an absolute nightmare that has ended in the worst possible way.’
Skull And Remains Found
A skull was recovered from a building site near Harwich Port, Essex, and Essex Police confirmed it belonged to father-of-two John following extensive DNA testing.
Human bones were also recovered along the coastline near Bath side Bay and in marshland recently, prompting further police examination.
His heartbroken family has said they are ‘devastated’ by the discovery as they paid tribute to him on Tuesday.
Essex Police confirmed a file would be sent to coroners who will determine the overall cause of death in an inquest due to be held later this year.
John leaves behind his wife Lorna and two young children.
In a statement released by Essex Police, his family said: ‘He was a wonderful man who was funny, kind, generous and trusting and, from the stories that have been shared, it is clear that this has been seen far and wide by so many people.
‘Everyone that knew him is better for knowing him, and John will be forever missed.
‘He was so very loved as a daddy, husband, son, and brother, and our hearts are shattered at our loss.’
