Inquest into inmate’s death set for January

The sudden death of a 37-year-old Westgate inmate will be examined before a jury in an inquest set for January.

A drug overdose is suspected in the death of Kino Outerbridge, of Sandys, who collapsed in the prison on October 6, 2009.

Mr Outerbridge, who had been jailed that August for a variety offences, was pronounced dead at King Edward VII Memorial later that day.

Magistrate Juan Wolffe, setting an inquest for January 9, 2012, noted that an autopsy report suggested Mr Outerbridge’s death may have been caused by an injection of drugs, and said he wished to review Westgate’s policies relating to drug interdiction.

Lawyer Victoria Pearman, representing Mr Outerbridge’s family, said a number of prison inmates may have been witnesses.

Police Sergeant Lydon Raynor said a forensic pathologist may also give evidence. The inquest is expected to take one week.
