A public inquest has been scheduled by the BC Coroners Service for the death of Bradley Gregory Martins Graham, beginning at 9:30 a.m. on May 21 at the Victoria Law Courts.
Graham died on March 6, 2016, at the Victoria General Hospital after being transferred from the Vancouver Island Regional Correctional Centre. The 33-year-old had been found unresponsive in his cell.
The Coroners Act permits the chief coroner to hold an inquest if the public has an interest in being informed of the circumstances surrounding a death and looks to gather facts surrounding why a death took place. The B.C. Coroners Service provides an independent service to the family, community, government agencies and other organizations, but is not a fault-finding agency.
Larry Marzinzik, the presiding coroner, and a jury will hear evidence from witnesses under oath to determine the facts surrounding this death, giving the jury the opportunity to make recommendations aimed at preventing deaths under similar circumstances. However, the jury will not make any findings of legal responsibility or express any conclusion of law.
