A young man died in a prison cell at Peterborough Magistrates’ Court after taking cocaine and drinking alcohol an inquest has ruled. Adam Bosson (24) of Goddard Crescent, Wisbech, died in a cell at the court on February 20, 2008, minutes after being checked on by staff.
At an inquest into his death held at Peterborough Town Hall today (Friday), a jury of five women and three men recorded a verdict of death by misadventure after hearing that a post mortem had found traces of alcohol and cocaine in Mr Bosson’s body.
Pathologist Dr Nat Cary, who carried out the post mortem said the cause of Mr Bosson’s death had been “a combined effect of cocaine and alcohol intoxication” which could have caused him to have a fatal seizure or a heart rhythm disturbance.
