Police identify man found dead in Ocean Height

Post mortem inconclusive

The Royal Gibraltar Police (RGP) said a post mortem carried out yesterday on the body found at Ocean Heights last Monday had proved inconclusive.

The development came as they released a photograph of the dead man and named him as Michael Edward Fenton, born on July 22nd, 1965.

Mr Fenton was born in Gibraltar but had spent most of his life in Australia. He had returned to the Rock toward the end of last year.

The post mortem was carried out at St Bernard’s Hospital by Doctor Peter Jerreat, a Home Office pathologist.

“The results of the post mortem at this stage are inconclusive and [we] await further medical analysis in the UK,” the RGP said in a statement.

The RGP is continuing with its investigation into the death of Mr Fenton, which is still being treated as suspicious. Police have appealed for anyone who may have known him to contact them at New Mole House police station on 75465 or 72500. Officers also want to speak to anyone who may have seen him between September 19th and September 26th this year.
