How did Michael get into the drain?

The Observer - - NEWS OPINION YOUR SAY -

THERE is prob­a­bly no greater pain imag­in­able than of a par­ent los­ing a child, even if grown up.

Michael Cere­muga’s body was found deep in­side a drain un­der Glad­stone Be­naraby Rd in May this year.

Mr Cere­muga was a known drug user, but ac­cord­ing to his fam­ily, was turn­ing the cor­ner when he died.

His dis­traught fa­ther has turned to The Ob­server in the hope that some­one may know some­thing that will help him to un­der­stand how his son’s body came to be where it was.

He says he can’t imag­ine Michael crawl­ing that far up a rel­a­tively small open­ing and it’s easy to un­der­stand why he feels that way.

Los­ing a loved son is hard enough, but in such tragic cir­cum­stances with­out any clo­sure would be tor­ture.

The case is now in the hands of the coro­ner af­ter the tox­i­col­ogy re­port was released.

The re­port was not able to de­ter­mine the cause of death and the po­lice say there is no ev­i­dence of any­one else be­ing in­volved.

Maybe there wasn’t any­one else in­volved, or maybe no ev­i­dence is just that, no ev­i­dence.

Some­body must know some­thing and for the sake of a griev­ing fam­ily, I urge you to come for­ward with any in­for­ma­tion, no mat­ter how in­signif­i­cant or triv­ial it may seem.

Re­gard­less of how Mr Cere­muga died or why, his fam­ily de­serve to know so they can some­how try to find a way to deal with their loss.
