A man believed to be from Angola mysteriously fell from the sky in the Mortlake neighborhood of West London on a Sunday morning. His contorted body struck fear in the hearts of all who witnessed his corpse. Children's eyes were covered to keep the horror from staining their vision for years to come.
He was initially believed to have been a murder victim, but a day later the theory behind his identity changed. Police noticed that a jet passing overhead was lowering its landing gear as it prepared to land at nearby Heathrow Airport. The man was found with only some Angolan currency in his possession, which has lead police to ponder the possibility that he fell out of a plane when its landing gear was lowered. Looking into the matter further, authorities discovered that a plane from Angola was beginning its descent in order to land in Heathrow around the same time when his body fell.
London authorities have contacted Angolan officials to try and identify the man, but there has been no luck in putting a name to his mangled face. Police have no clue why this stowaway was on that plane, nor do they know who he was running from, or running to. One resident of the area who witnessed his body, 41-year-old Catherine Lambert, expressed her sadness about the man's unfortunate death.
"You could see him, his body was contorted. It was a beautiful blue day, really sunny, but we had to keep the children inside. I didn't want the children to see, and to have to explain to them and put fear into them every time a plane goes over. I felt, what was he running away from? What made him think he could? And how will his family ever know? He's a lost soul now; his father and mother are probably waiting for him to make contact."
The only form of identification police were able to find on the man were the letters "G" and "Z" tattooed on his arm.
