Dear Sussex Police,
I believe in January 2010 Sussex Police were investigating deaths at Sussex Partnership Trust and one of those deaths was Susannah Anley.There was talk of a case under the Corporate Manslaughter Act.
It seems when John Blair, 40, of Elphinstone Road, Hastings, was also found hanging in his room at the same facility on October 19, police decided to look back at other deaths at the trust's facilities.
Then Police Sargent Richard Bexhell was also found hanged at SPT Woodlands Unit and Detective Chief Inspector Trevor Bowles in charge of the investigation said: “Sussex Police major crime branch are investigating circumstances relating to the deaths of four people.
I believe the Investigation was halted through lack of evidence therefore can I ask how Sussex Police could find no evidence against SPT,when SPT have now admitted liability in the case of Susannah Anley http://www.hastingsobserver.co.uk/news/l...
Will Sussex police now be re-opening inquiries on the other deaths too?
