Cus­tody death: still wait­ing re­sult

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

THE In­de­pen­dent Po­lice Com­plaints Com­mis­sion says it is still wait­ing for the post-mortem ex­am­i­na­tion re­sults on a man who died in po­lice cus­tody in Uxbridge.

Richard Brian Free­man, 57, was found col­lapsed at the po­lice sta­tion in War­wick Place on the morn­ing of Tues­day, June 24, and died shortly af­ter­wards.

Of­fi­cers had ar­rested him in Peachey Lane, Cow­ley, the pre­vi­ous af­ter­noon at about 3.30pm, on sus­pi­cion of caus­ing dam­age to a car.

West London coro­ner’s of­fice said a post-mortem ex­am­i­na­tion was car­ried out on Mr Free­man, of St Christo­pher’s Road, Cow­ley, on Wed­nes­day, June 25, the day after he died.

The re­sults have yet to be recorded in the case file, said a spokesman.

De­lays can be as a re­sult of the need for fur­ther pathol­ogy tests.

An IPCC Spokesman said: “The pathol­o­gist’s re­port will de­ter­mine whether there are any fur­ther lines of en­quiry.”
