Tributes have been paid to Kamil Leszczynki, whose body was found in Carlton last Thursday (1 July).
His family have described the 33-year-old as ‘cheerful and affectionate’ and said he will be missed by friends and family.
Kamil Leszczynski, 33, of Knox Road, Wellingborough, was discovered close to a farm track in fields off Turvey Road between the villages of Carlton and Turvey.
Officers from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit have launched an investigation, and they are treating his death as murder.
Today, Mr Leszczynski’s family said: “Kamil was a wonderful person and a wonderful brother.
“He was a cheerful and affectionate man. He loved his sister, and was always caring and supportive of her.
“He will be missed by all of his family and friends.”
Detective Chief Inspector Rob Hall, who is leading the investigation, said: “Our thoughts are with the victim’s family and friends at this difficult time.
“We are working to establish his movements leading up to 1 July, and we are extremely keen to speak to anyone who knew Kamil, or saw in him in the days before.
“No matter how short your sighting or conversation was, I would encourage you to please get in touch.”
