The inquest into the death of a former paramedic from Rhyl has been opened and adjourned.
The body of 56 year-old Michael Capper was found on a building site near Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor last January – he had been missing for three and a half weeks.
Deputy coroner Nicola Jones told the hearing in Caernarfon on Wednesday, that Mr Capper, who also had known links with Porthmadog, was pronounced dead when he was found at a perimeter fence, next to a housing development in the Penrhosgarnedd area of the city.
His death was not treated as suspicious and a post-mortem examination had been carried out, but the findings had not been made public.
The inquest was adjourned until a later date.
