Mystery Of Tamam Shud Case An Unidentified Man

The Tamam Shud case was known as the Mystery of the Somerton Man. At 6:30 am on 1 December 1948, an unidentified man was found dead in Somerton Beach, located in Adelaide, Australia. It is named after months later found a scrap of paper in the fob pocket of the man’s trouser with the word Persian phrase “Tamam Shud” written on it. The words were translated “finished” or “ended” based on excerpts found in The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam.

Tamam Shud Case
From the book which the page had been torn was located, inside back cover, the Detectives were able to read in indentations from handwriting, a local telephone number, another unidentified number and a text that resembled an encrypted message.

The number belonged to a local nurse named Jessica Thomson. After interviewed by a detective, she claimed not to recognize Somerton man but did tell police that she had once owned a copy of the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam. The code, the missing labels and the air of mystery surrounding the dead man raised the possibility his death was espionage-related, and he himself may even have been a spy.

Whoever Somerton man was, he either wanted to remain anonymous or somebody had stripped the body of any form of identification. The trouble for the police was that was it. Aside from this small assortment of items, the body was entirely and utterly anonymous. No wallet, passport or identification documents. Strangest of all, the labels in his clothing had been deliberately removed.

There were no marks on the body or signs of a struggle and the autopsy revealed that he had not died of a heart attack or other natural causes. However, the sign of damage to his organs suspects he had died as the result of hemorrhaging caused by poison.

There has been persistent speculation that the dead man was a spy, due to the circumstances and historical context of his death. In addition, United States, the FBI was unable to match the dead man's fingerprint with prints taken from files of domestic criminals. Although governments around the world have tried to identify the man his identity has remained a mystery.
