The decomposing body of Michael Polding, 63, was found in his Brighton, UK, flat six months ago and police now want to speak with Pillay/Pisano who it has been revealed was living with the victim and was calling himself Polding's carer, even though the older man was not medically in need of care.
Pillay/Pisano had served eight months of a fifteen month sentence for extortion in 2001 when he escaped from Rangipo Prison. He somehow found his way to the UK. His sexuality has not been addressed publicly by the UK investigation team.
Sussex police have released information on the victim and alleged killer on a website (see link below). It is possible they will extend their formal enquiries to New Zealand and South Africa.
