He earned his nickname “The Gentleman” after he was found in a wool tie, long-sleeved blue shirt, British-made shoes and French-made trousers.

His body, which was found in the water off the coast of Helgoland, was weighed down with cast-iron shoes.

Investigators in the 1990s believed he was 45 to 50 when he died and it was initially suggested that he was of British origin.

German police have been at a loss in their search for more about the man, but criminologists and forensic scientists at Perth’s Murdoch University have now made significant progress.

By adopting the “you are what you eat” principle, scientists were able to perform an isotope ratio analysis of The Gentleman’s bones.

Differences in soil, climate, and human activity around the world alter the isotopic composition of food, water, and even dust in the isotopic composition of human tissue.

The data collected revealed the man likely spent most of his life in Australia, reports The Guardian.

New tests also created a DNA profile of the man, who is believed to have been 45 to 50 years old when he died.

Brendan Chapman, a director of Murdoch University’s cold case review team, said it was a remarkable revelation.

He said, “What are the chances that out of this small collection of universities working on this case, one is from the country where the man is from?”

Researchers hope his DNA will reveal more about who he was and if he has any living relatives.

Details of his case were released as part of Missing Person Week, with authorities urging Australians to turn up for tests to help solve some of the country’s cold cases.
