Three months on detectives are today renewing their appeal for information into the death of 64 year old Alan Jeal from Wadebridge.
His body was discovered by a member of the public while out walking his dog on Tuesday 25th February. Multiple injuries were found on his body which officers say are inconsistent with drowning and cannot be easily explained.
Police have revealed that when Alan’s body was discovered, a sock was found in his mouth.
Alan's brother Derek Jeal says uncertainties surrounding Alan's death are making it difficult for the family to find closure. He is urging anyone who may have seen or spoken to him on the night of his death to come forward.
Detectives are now renewing their appeal to trace the three people seen on CCTV at a Truro bus stop with Alan Jeal, as well as anyone who saw him in Perranporth.
The images show a man matching Alan Jeal’s description talking to someone at a bus stop at 6.45pm on Monday 24 February at Lemon Quay bus station, Truro.
Two other people were also waiting for the bus, destined for Perranporth, at the same time.
Anyone with any information is asked to call police on 101.
