Coroner ordered forensic review following death of Mark Harris in Bury St Edmunds, inquest hears

By Newsdesk Bury

An inquest has heard that review by a forensic pathologist was ordered by a coroner because of family concerns about the death of a man in Bury St Edmunds.

The body of Mark Harris, 24, was discovered at his former partner's flat in College Mews on January 11, 2016.

Laura Manning had asked for emergency services to conduct a welfare check on Mr Harris because he had said that he wanted to end his own life.

An inquest at Suffolk Coroners Court in Ipswich heard that while a pathologist at the West Suffolk Hospital had concluded there were no suspicious circumstances, Mr Harris's family had asked for further information about what had happened.

That had led to Suffolk Area Coroner Jacqueline Devonish asking a forensic pathologist to review the case.

Earlier, the inquest had heard that police and an ambulance crew had not forced their way into Miss Manning's flat for more than three hours because controllers had not relayed information to them that she had given permission.

Mr Harris, who was found hanged, had been disagnosed with ADHD and was suffering from depression.
