Thank you missbeetle  very kind as well as very clever. I thought they were  the same man but the playground man has a pointy head whilst the other one is flatter, there are a lot of similarities though.

Not trying to score points or anything but still think it's our man! Not that my opinion means a jot really! Nothing in this case is simple, is it!

I would say that possibly his head looks flatter on the top because of the picture quality and objects behind blending.

The glasses are the same - deeper at the nose and angled up towards the side of the face (they look larger again because of shadow and picture quality).

He's got a strong brow ridge; high cheekbones; distinctive shadow below bottom lip; square chin; smallish ears; smallish nose; same coloured skin; eyebrows show above glasses; glasses narrow black arms to sides; likes t shirts with front logos!

As I say, only IMO! I appreciate that Murat has 2 other look-alikes so inadvisable to be 100% positive! Would be good if someone could come up with a photo of Raj - tried googling his name and his firm in London but no luck yet. He is on LinkedIn if anyone has access to that (Rajinder Raj Singh Balu). His name suggests Raj is a Sikh (Singh) but of course he may not be practising (i.e. shaved head is unusual for Sikhs).

Have clarified though that Raj Balu definitely made a statement to the British police on 6 May 2007, which has not been released. One would assume that this was given to the PJ and therefore must have been withheld by them when the files were released. I guess (?) he was back in the UK for this first statement as he was scheduled to fly back on the 5 May.

Thanks missbeetle for the 2 photos together.

Mysterious bald men...

Post by missbeetle on 22.08.15 0:07

A couple of thoughts about Playground Man -

his manbag satchel and the jacket tied around his waist

suggests to me he is foreign - French Moroccan??

Portuguese, even?


Regarding the Sikh name of Mr Raj Balu Singh - he may not have adopted the turban

but he could well wear a steel bangle on his right wrist -

which may or may not have been photoshopped out...!

Possibly police...?

This can go into the mix, too :

The colleague of 'Baby Face' sounds dark and bald, too!

@missbeetle - interesting! Good to see references possibly to 'bald guy' collated in one thread. You'd have thought that The Mail reporters would have ruled out Raj Balu before checking whether 'playground man' was Jes Wilkins, which again does suggest that the man in the photos is not Balu. The reference in ROB's Rogatory to the PJ officer is a possibility but when you watch the news clips etc, all the portuguese searchers are GNR officers in uniform (do all the leg work) - did the PJ (equivalent to our detectives) actually conduct any searches? Bald guy seems to be almost leading some of the searches and it does come across that he is there in an official capacity. The GNR officers seem to be following his direction - would they do this if he were a tourist/local Juan? But then why would he be in the playground - seems unlikely that the photo was taken post 3 May, even if photoshopped? He does not look British - the man bag is popular in Spain/Portugal/France/Italy (don't know about more northern European countries). Very few Brits use them.

The PJ must know who he is.
OG must know who he is.
Hasn't Amaral stated that he is Raj Balu? (I don't believe he is; Amaral may or may not be misdirecting and if so, it will be for good reason).


If 'Bald Guy' is a protection specialist/officer of some kind and he was there prior to 3 May, OG and the PJ must know this.
