The racing bike that was recovered from the canal was not damaged. This leads those investigating the death to believe that the man wasn’t involved in a collision before he ended up in the canal.
An initial autopsy found nothing abnormal on the man’s body. He only had a few grazes on his legs. One possibility being considered is that he became unwell before he fell into the water. The man had no identity documents on him. He is believed to e around 70 years old.
