Police appeal to trace movements of man found dead in Bishops Lydeard

Avon and Somerset Police are appealing for the public’s help to trace the movements of a man whose body was found in Bishops Lydeard on New Year’s Eve.

Kyle Hudson, 28, was found dead outside a property on Darby Way at approximately 10:20.

A forensic post-mortem examination has been carried out and Kyle’s death is not being treated as suspicious at this time.

Police are keen to speak to anyone who saw Kyle in the hours before his body was found as part of their on-going inquiry to establish exactly what happened.

Detective inspector, Angela Burtonwood, said:

“Kyle’s family are being fully supported and kept updated on the progress of our inquiry. Our thoughts continue to be with them during this difficult time.

We’re releasing a photograph of Kyle in the hope that someone recognises him and remembers seeing him early on 31 December.

Were you in Bishops Lydeard that morning? Did you see or speak to Kyle?

Kyle’s phone is also missing and is something we’d like to trace.

If you found a black iPhone 7 in the vicinity of Darby Way, or remember seeing one discarded please get in touch.”

Anyone with information is asked to call 101 and provide the call handler with the reference 5217296368.
