“NO BODY, no burial, no justice, no peace.” This was the cry from hundreds of demonstrators who marched through Birmingham to protest about the suspicious death of Kingsley Burrell, whose body has still not been buried almost 18 months after his death.

The 29-year-old father of two died on March 30, 2011, just days after being arrested by West Midlands Police. His family said he had dialled 999 asking for help after allegedly suffering intimidation from a gang while out with his five-year-old son.

When officers found him they detained him under the Mental Health Act and he was later admitted to the Mary Seacole Mental Health Unit.

He was soon transferred to Birmingham’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital, where he was pronounced dead four days later.

Burrell’s family has said he has no history of mental health problems and alleged Burrell also had unexplained physical injuries when he died.

On July 18 this year, Burrell’s body was finally officially released, but his family members were then ordered by the coroner to delay his funeral arrangements for more weeks.

They hope to bury him at the end of this month.
