Inquests find drugs and alcohol responsible for house deaths

Inquests find drugs and alcohol responsible for house deaths

Michael Owens

Inquests into the deaths of two men who were found in the same house in Burnham within a matter of weeks were held at Bucks Coroners Court in Beaconsfield yesterday.

Christopher Tooley, 47 of Boyn Valley Road in Maidenhead was found in the flat in Coulson Way on Tuesday, January 29.

Puneet Rahi, 37, of no fixed abode, was found at the same address on Friday, February 15.

Buckinghamshire coroner Richard Hulett heard Mr Rahi had been one of several people arrested in the house as part of the investigation into Mr Tooley's death.

Mr Hulett recorded a verdict of death by misadventure due to a combination of alcohol and drugs for both men.

Several items of paraphernalia used for intravenous drugs were found around the house.

Detective Constable Diane Rooney, of Thames Valley Police, said the neighbourhood team was doing 'a lot of work' at the house to stop people coming to the property to take drugs, and help them with their addictions.
