    Two men have been charged with the murder of 72 year old Falmouth man David Alderson, whose body was found in a disused copper mine in January, and who police initially thought had died in a cycling accident (?). He'd left home in his vehicle.

    Trewen Kevern, 21, from Ashfield Road, Falmouth will appear in court today. He's jointly charged with murder alongside Kevin Cooper, 33 from Redruth, who has already pleaded not guilty.

    A trial date of November 11th has been set.

    Article from when David's body was found Jan 18th:

    'Police believe he had an accident at Wheal Maid mine works near Carharrack and died at the scene....dressed in....cycling shoes.'

    Another earlier article about the investigation:

    'A 72-year-old cyclist whose body was found in a disused Cornish copper mine was murdered, police believe.....Devon and Cornwall Police initially thought the Falmouth man had fallen accidentally...'

    'They have now begun a murder inquiry and say they are looking for 33-year-old Kevin Cooper from Redruth.'

    '...although Mr Alderson was wearing cycling gear, police were unable to find his bike.'

    http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-cornwall-25947274

    This is the mine David was found in. The article at the link also reveals (in my opinion) that police thought someone had pinched David's bike, though they worded it subtly.
