'Irish Accent' Key To British Police Appeal Over Dead Kayaker UPDATED

21st October 2015

#Kayaking - Update: Police have now identified the deceased kayaker as Morgan Savage, 40, from Dublin, according to TheJournal.ie.

A possible 'Irish accent' is the only clue to the identity of a kayaker whose body was found on the Isle of Wight last month, as The Irish Times reports.

Hampshire Police have released an e-fit of the man they describe as "well built" with blue eyes and dark hair, who was last seen on 8 September at Brighton Canoes in Newhaven, Sussex where he rented an inflatable kayak later recovered from the sea.

Staff at the canoe shop "thought he sounded Irish", according to another employee, which so far is the only indication as to his possible identity. The man's death remains unexplained.
