A teenager, whose body was found in the water at Exmouth Marina on Saturday, has been named as Sergio Emanuel Sousa Nunes.
An inquest into the man’s death was yesterday opened and adjourned by coroner Dr Elizabeth Earland.
The 19-year-old man was believed to have been working in Exmouth.
Police said he was an ‘international person whose parents lived abroad’. Next of kin had been notified of the man’s death.
The unexplained death was not being treated as suspicious, said Devon and Cornwall police.
The man’s body was discovered close to a pontoon by Exmouth crime writer Graham Hurley and his son, Tom, who were on a mackerel fishing trip.
The pair said they were ‘shocked’ by the discovery.
“Our deepest sympathy to his family and friends,” said Mr Hurley.
The Exmouth RNLI inshore lifeboat was launched at 1.30pm on Saturday, October 17, to help Devon and Cornwall police.
Crew volunteers recovered the body from the water to the RNLI boathouse, where police and the coastguard were waiting.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact police on 101, quoting log 344 on October 17, 2015.
