THE cause of Aaron Fiveash’s death remains unknown a week after his body was found on a Hampshire beach, an inquest heard.

Pathologist Dr Basil Purdue, who carried out a post-mortem on the 36-year-old last week, recorded that the cause of death was “unascertained” and required further medical examination.

Coroner’s officer Andrew Lord, who read evidence to Bournemouth Coroner’s Court yesterday, confirmed Mr Fiveash, of Southbourne Road, went missing from his parents’ home in Hengistbury Head on January 6.

“He was believed to be naked,” said Mr Lord.

“His parents house is close to the River Stour.

“His body was located on the shoreline in Southsea on the morning of January 29.”

On Wednesday Mr Fiveash’s parents voiced their thanks to everyone who had helped in the search, including his former colleagues at John Reid and Sons in Christchurch.

According to his family he had been suffering panic attacks prior to his disappearance.

Deputy Dorset Coroner Brendan Allen adjourned the inquest until May 1 for further investigations to be carried out.
