Flasher’s genitals were cut off and he bled to death. On a deserted industrial park, a convicted sexual offender bled to death after having his genitalia severed.
Two weeks after missing a court date for violating a sex offenders order, Reginald Alan Roach, 63, was discovered in a pool of blood by a dog walker on the Bryn Cegin industrial estate in Bangor, North Wales, on Sunday. He had already been found guilty earlier this year of dazzling employees by exposing himself to the waist in a Travelodge lobby.
An inquest heard today that Roach was discovered “unresponsive” and died from injuries to his private areas.
On Monday, North Wales Police said they were looking into the death because it was “unexplained.” Police are looking into his death, but they don’t believe anyone else was involved. The hearing into Roach’s death began today in Caernarfon with remarks by Kate Sutherland, acting senior coroner for north-western Wales.
A post-mortem examination was performed on the deceased, who resided at the Ty Newydd, bail hostel on Llandygai Road in Bangor. Mrs. Sutherland listed “shock and hemorrhaging caused to incised incisions removing genitalia” as the preliminary cause of death.
On October 31, just a week before he passed away, Roach was scheduled to appear in court at Llandudno Magistrates Court on a charge of failing to follow notification rules relating to the sex offenders register at Caernarfon Police Station on September 13, 2022.
That day, he was supposed to enter a plea. In August, Roach acknowledged exposing himself at a Travelodge Hotel after he ‘bizarrely’ requested assistance from workers in Gwynedd while he was completely naked from the waist down.
In August, a court heard that he was staying in a Travelodge in Gwynedd provided by the municipality, but he went into a public space while completely naked from the waist down. According to Roach’s defense attorney, the incident was not motivated by sexual desire because the defendant had a serious brain injury when he was younger.
According to the prosecution, he made a hotel employee “deeply uncomfortable” by shifting his hips to draw attention to his lower body. The defendant acknowledged becoming a “nuisance” and apologized to the workers.
He confessed to exposing himself when he appeared in jail before a district judge at Llandudno court. Roach was given a 16-week suspended prison sentence and ordered to give the hotel employee who was “disgusted by his behavior” £150 in compensation.
He acknowledged burning a memorial to poppies the day following Remembrance Sunday in 2019 in 2020.
In 2019, after Roach enjoyed himself in his cell and urinated in the police station shower, the department was hit with a £300 clean-up fee.
In order to wait for the outcome of additional investigations, the hearing was postponed by the acting senior coroner.
