The family of a 17-year-old soldier found shot dead at Deepcut barracks have made fresh claims they believe he was murdered.
Pte Geoff Gray’s mother also voiced doubts a second inquest due to begin in Surrey would bring any answers. Diane Gray said witnesses asked for by the family would not appear.
Four young soldiers died at Deepcut between 1995 and 2002. Pte Gray was found with two gunshot wounds to his head in 2001.
A first inquest in 2002 into the death of the soldier from Seaham, County Durham, who lived in Hackney, London, from the age of five, ended with an open verdict.
A new hearing is taking place at Woking Coroner’s Court after the family won the right to apply for a new hearing, arguing fresh evidence had come to light.
