Can you see the results of an inquest?

As inquests are public enquiries, it is possible to obtain a copy of the post-mortem report and any depositions taken at the inquest, including a copy of the verdict. These official reports are only available after the inquest has concluded.

Why would there be an inquest?

The law says that the Coroner must open an inquest into a death if there is reasonable cause to suspect that the death was due to anything other than natural causes. For inquests opened without a post mortem examination, the cause of death given by the reporting doctor is non-natural.
