The identity has now been released of the local man whose body was found on the foreshore of Penarth Head on May 5th .
He has been named as Thomas Cynon Davies aged 36 whom police have confirmed was a resident of Penarth.
The naked body of Mr Davies was found on the foreshore in the afternoon of May 5th but the cause of death has yet to be established .
Police, paramedics and Penarth coastguard officers were called to the scene but were not able to remove the body until a police photographer had completed the task of taking pictures at the location – half-way down the beach between the cliffs and the waterline – and forensic experts had examined the body in situ.
The Vale of Glamorgan Coroner has opened an inquest which has now been adjourned until July.
