Unexplained death

Police investigating the death of 39-year-old Ted Renshaw on behalf of HM Coroner are appealing to the public for their help.

Mr Renshaw was located deceased on Sandymouth Beach, near Bude on Thursday 22 August at around 7.45am.

The death is not thought to be suspicious but is being treated as unexplained.

DC Richard Martin said: “Ted went missing from his home in Holsworthy on the morning of 19th August 2019 and his movements between 19th August and the 22nd August are not known. I am trying to piece together Ted’s last movements between these dates.

“He did not have his own transport so could well have used busses in the area.

“He was described as white with mousey/ginger hair which was short cut. He was possibly wearing Khaki trousers and a Barbour type Jacket and was thought to have been carrying a large holdall and a rucksack, both grey and black in colour.

“Ted may have been staying in guest houses or camping/sleeping outside in the area.

“Anyone with information can contact us via quoting the following enquiry number EN/012874/19.”
