AN investigation has been launched into the death of a nightclub doorman who was found at a house in Penryn.

John Cotterill, originally from Constantine, worked at Club International in Falmouth. He also worked as a maintenance man at the club during the day.

Club owner Gil West said: “He will be greatly missed – there wasn’t anything he couldn’t turn his hand to.

“He was popular with the customers, everyone knew him and we have already had comments about his loss and what a nice bloke he was.”

Tributes flooded in on the Facebook page of his brother Ben Cotterill included one from David Kitts, who wrote: “So full of life. Going to miss you mate you will always be a part of us at the club, it’s like losing one of my own boys, god bless you mate x – will never forget you.”

It was believed Mr Cotterill had three children.

Police were called to a property in Jacks Close just after 3pm on February 14, following a report of a sudden death.

A police spokesman said: “A man in his thirties was found deceased. The death isn’t being treated as suspicious.”

The Cornwall coroner confirmed an investigation was launched into the death of John Cotterill on February 20.
