A sex offender bled to death after suffering gruesome injuries in an abandoned estate, an inquest heard. Reginald Alan Roach, 63, was found unconscious in an old Wales industrial area by a dog walker.
Roach was covered in blood as his genitals had been sliced off, which is thought to be his cause of death.
Police are not looking for anyone else in connection to the convicted sex offender’s death.
An inquest was today opened by Kate Sutherland, an acting senior coroner for north west Wales.
Mrs Sutherland gave Roach’s provisional cause of death as “shock and haemorrhaging due to incised wounds removing genitalia”, North Wales Live reported.
She adjourned the hearing to a later date as she was awaiting the results of further investigations.
Roach was due to appear in court about a week before his death but had failed to show.
The 63-year-old had faced a charge of failing to comply with notification requirements in relation to the sex offenders register at Caernarfon Police Station on September 13.
He had been expected to enter a plea that day.
