Police admit they are baffled how a Wadebridge man's body was found naked on a Cornish beach.

An investigation into what happened to Alan Jeal at Perranporth is being wound down.

Detectives say they will follow up any fresh leads - but they want to release the 64 year old's body so the family can hold a funeral.

They have been faced with a string of unanswered questions, including why he had a sock and headphone stuffed in his mouth.

Alan's body was covered with injuries police have never been able to explain either.

That is despite an appeal for information on Crimewatch.

Police still want to talk to people at a bus stop who spoke to Alan on Monday 24th February at Lemon Quay bus station in Truro.

It is thought that happened just before he boarded a bus, starting a journey that would end on the beach at Perranporth.
