The post-mortem was carried out at East Ham mortuary on Thursday February 7.
It revealed that Mr Stott had died of natural causes.
A local business woman, whose building backs onto the area in which the body was found, said: "There was a lot of fuss going on outside so I went out to see what had happened.
"The police had cordoned off the area to the back of our car park and all they would say was that an incident had taken place.
"I did hear later that they had found a body but we were never officially told anything.
"I also heard that the body had been there for a while maybe as long as two weeks."
It is unclear why Neil Stott's body ended up on the industrial estate, which is not far from his home.
The investigation is still ongoing.
