Blackburn man drowned, inquest heard

Lancashire Telegraph: DROWNED David Young DROWNED David Young

AN INQUEST has been opened into the death of a man was found in the River Ribble.

The body of David Young, whose disappearance prompted a massive search operation, was discovered on the bank of the river close to Avenham Park in Preston, by a walker last week.

The opening of the inquest yesterday at Blackburn Coroner’s office heard how the 28 year old, of no fixed address, was due to visit his sister on October 19 but never showed up.

Coroner Michael Singleton said that initial findings show that his cause of death is consistent with drowning.

The inquest is due to be reopened after toxicology and histology tests are carried out.

I also think this is all very suspicious. But for now davids family/friends need time to grieve, and lay him to rest, and these comments won't help that process. i too Hope justice is done, R.I.P Youngy
