In July 1994, the body a man was fished out of the North Sea, near the German Island of Heligoland. Dressed smartly and with a complete absence of identifying information, the body was simply named ”The Gentleman”. Nearly thirty years later the body is still unnamed and unclaimed. And with injuries that suggested foul play, his killers have got away with murder. From the team that brought you The Mysterious Case of Fred the Head, join us as we take a deep dive into one of Europe’s coldest cases, and try to piece together what might have happened. Uncovering new clues, new possibilities and, just maybe, the truth.
