Mystery woman with ‘distinct tattoos’ found dead on Cornwall beach identified

A mystery woman with 'distinct tattoos' found dead on a Cornwall beach has been identified, police confirmed today.

The body of the female, aged in her late 20s to early 30s, was discovered by dog walkers yesterday morning after concerns for her welfare were raised.

Police are treating her death as unexplained, reports Cornwall Live.

Emergency services attended the scene at Parranporth beach and a cordon was put in place at around 7am.

Her identification comes hours after police appealed for help from the public in a bid to establish who she was.

They described her as having distinctive tattoos, including a large Celtic-type tattoo on her right thigh and a date in Roman numerals on her ankle.

Devon and Cornwall Police believe the woman is not from the UK and are currently in the process of informing her next-of-kin.

A spokesperson for the force said: "Police have identified a woman whose body was found on Perranporth beach yesterday (Monday 15 April).

"The woman is not believed to be a UK national and officers are in the process of informing her next-of-kin.

"The death is currently being treated as unexplained.

"No further details will be released until the next-of-kin have been informed."
