VIDEO: Fresh Lead In Body On The Beach Mystery
6:02am 3rd June 2014
There is a fresh lead in the case of the Wadebridge man found dead on Perranporth.
Alan Jeal's body was discovered on the beach - naked and with a sock and earphones stuffed in his mouth.
Police thought he had caught the bus direct from Truro - but now new CCTV has emerged showing him in Newquay hours earlier.
The footage shows Alan getting off a bus at Newquay bus station at 8.16pm on 24th February.He walks around the town centre, before returning to the bus station at 9pm. He then cathes the 9.15pm bus to Perranporth.
Alan is also captured on CCTV in Perranporth between 10.25pm and 10.27pm.
Detective Chief Inspector Dave Thorne said: “Originally we believed Alan caught the bus from Truro to Perranporth on Monday evening, but now this latest CCTV shows Alan in Newquay before taking a bus to Perranporth.
“We are hoping this may jog the memory of someone who was in the area at the same time as Alan and they may recall seeing him.”Alan's brother Derek told Pirate FM: "We're three months into a major inquiry actually having more unanswered questions than answered ones. That's quite difficult to deal with - because we can't have a funeral. Friends will ring me up and say, 'What's happening?' and I can't tell them."
Anyone with any information is asked to call police on 101 quoting reference 381 of 1 March.
