Inquest into man found on beach reconvenes

Reconvenes at 11am at Douglas courthouse

The inquest into the death of man whose decomposed body was found on an Island beach last year, will reconvene this morning. (Friday 14th).

The body of 57-year old Bruce John Robert Moon from Castletown was found south of White Beach near Niarbyl last August.

When the inquest opened in October 2016, the court heard Mr Moon's body may have been on the beach for several weeks before being found.

It had been impossible to establish a cause of death.

It was claimed Mr Moon had detached himself from friends and family members, who had not been aware of his whereabouts.

The inquest will reconvene at 11am in Douglas courthouse in front of Coroner of Inquests Jayne Hughes.
