Inquest to Begin in to the Death of Southampton Student


An inquest in to the death of a 20 year-old Southampton Solent student who was found dead on his bedroom floor last January is to begin today, Wednesday 12th May.

The body of Tom Hay was discovered by his mother at 1.45pm on January 19th. He had been out the night before in Portswood with friends, but had declined to drink, as he was the designated driver. He had returned in the early hours of the morning with a friend and gone to bed.

Police are not ruling the death suspicious, but the tragedy remains a mystery after post-mortem results of the body were inconclusive. The family are hoping for answers when Hampshire coroner Grahame Short examines the body.

Tom had hoped for a career in advertising and was described by his mother as a “healthy and gorgeous young man”.
