The death of a man whose body was found in the Three Brooks Local Nature Reserve on Tuesday 2nd July is “in no way suspicious” says a local police inspector.
In a piece written for the August edition of the Bradley Stoke Journal magazine, Inspector Bob Evely gives an assurance that the incident has no relevance for community safety.
Inspector Evely writes:
“As the Neighbourhood Inspector, I’d like to reassure everyone that the sad discovery of a man’s body in the Bradley Stoke Ponds area recently has in no way had an impact on the safety of the community as a whole.”
“Our enquiries have revealed that he was not a local man and was probably passing through our area on the way to somewhere else.”
“We continue to work with the Coroner’s Office to ensure that as many answers as possible can be provided to his next of kin around his travel and sad death, which was in no way suspicious.”
The man’s body was discovered at 10.30am on Tuesday 2nd July, near the “duck pond” behind houses in Juniper Way.
Police initially reported the death as “unexplained” but later the same day said they were not treating it as suspicious “at [that] stage”.
The case has now been passed to the Avon Coroner and an inquest is expected to be held in due course.
A full round up of the events of 2nd July will appear in the next edition of the Bradley Stoke Journal magazine, distributed to all homes in Bradley Stoke on the weekend of Saturday 3rd August.
