Kamil Leszczynski lived in Wellingborough.

The 33-year-old had lived in Wellingborough for ten years and searches were being carried out in the town on Thursday.

A roadblock was also carried out in Turvey Road that day, near where Kamil had been found a week earlier.

This evening a Bedfordshire Police spokesman said the man arrested on suspicion of murder had been bailed pending further enquiries.
