Reginald Alan Roach, 63, was found dead after having his genitals cut off. He had previously been added to the sex offenders register after exposing himself at a Travelodge

Police are not looking for anyone else after an elderly flasher bled to death after being found with his genitals sliced off.

Reginald Alan Roach was found unresponsive by a dog walker on Bryn Cegin industrial estate in Bangor, North Wales, on Sunday.

The 63-year-old had suffered severe “wounds” to his groin, with an inquest opened into his death today.

He had previously been forced to sign the sex offenders register after exposing himself at a Travelodge.

North Wales Police said it wanted to provide an update to “end unhelpful speculation” and to renew an appeal for witnesses.

A spokesperson said: “Following our statement earlier this week regarding the death of a man who was discovered collapsed at Parc Bryn Cegin, Llandegai, the Coroner today opened an investigation.

“Following a Home Office Post Mortem, and to end unhelpful speculation, we can confirm that we are not looking for anyone else in connection with the death of Reginald Alan Roach, but would renew our appeal for anyone who saw an elderly man, approximately 5’8” tall and wearing blue jeans with a grey hooded top in the area between 10am on Saturday, November 5th and 9am on Sunday, November 6th to please contact us on 101 quoting reference B168289.

“We will not be making further comment as the matter remains with the Local Coroner.”

Roach appeared in court on October 31, just days before he died, faced with a charge of failing to comply with requirements of the register.

He was supposed to go through notification proceedings at Caernarfon Police Station on September 13, 2022.

In August, Roach admitted to exposing himself at a Travelodge Hotel after asking staff to place a bet for him while he was naked from the waist down.

He had been placed at one of the chain’s hotels by a council.

He was given a 16-week suspended jail term and ordered to pay £150 compensation to the worker disgusted by his behaviour.

He also had to register as a sex offender.

In 2020 he admitted destroying a poppy memorial the day after Remembrance Sunday in 2019.

Kate Sutherland, acting senior coroner for north west Wales, opened the inquest in Caernarfon.

The hearing was told Roach was found unresponsive and died after sustaining severe “wounds” to his groin.

Dr. Brian Rodgers carried out a post-mortem examination on the deceased, who lived at the Ty Newydd bail hostel on Llandygai Road, Bangor.

Ms. Sutherland gave the provisional cause of death as “shock and hemorrhage due to incised wounds removing genitalia”.

The acting senior coroner adjourned the hearing to a later date pending the result of further investigations.
