For months, his identity was a mystery. Now police have discovered exactly who he is.
Police were baffled when no one came forward to report the young man missing after he was hit by a train on September 14 last year at East Camberwell railway station.
Police believe he was killed after he stepped out of an alcove and into the train's path.
The man had no identification in his wallet, which was empty except for a myki card. He was wearing a pair of Crocker-branded jeans, which police believed were from Sweden.
Police issued two public appeals for information last October and November after the man did not match any existing missing persons cases.
The case was reported in Sweden, and the man's family recently contacted police when they read the story in a local newspaper.
Police confirmed the identity of the 22-year-old Swedish national through DNA technology and his remains were repatriated, a spokesman said.
The man's death is not being treated as suspicious.
The spokesman said investigators wanted to thank the public and the media for their help in solving the case.
