NEARLY five years after his death, the family and friends of a young Wisbech man who died in police custody might soon learn the cause of his death.
An inquest into the death of Adam Bosson, 24, of Goddard Crescent opened today at Peterborough Town Hall and is expected to conclude tomorrow.
Mr Bosson was found dead in the cells at Peterborough Magistrates Court hours after being sentenced to a week in prison for non-payment of a £90 fine for drugs possession.
Many of his friends and family set up a Facebook tribute page following his death on February 20, 2008.
It was later linked with a tribute to Mr Bosson’s friend, Carl Parsons, 25, of Walsoken, who died in a car crash in Berkshire in September 2010.
