Jury fails to determine who is reponsible for death of senior policeman

The Coroner's jury tasked with deciding whether there was criminal negligence in the death of Senior Superintendent Dathan Henry reached an open verdict today.

The unanimous verdict means they suspect foul play but they are unable to determine who should be held responsible for his death.

The ruling also means further investigations should take place to come to a conclusion regarding who is responsible for Henry’s death.

Henry died at the Kingston Public Hospital in 2012 after a brief illness.

Following a probe by the Major Investigations Taskforce, the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions ruled that a coroner's inquest be held.

A pathologist report used as evidence at the inquiry revealed that a chemical used in rat poison was found in Henry's system.
