Man found dead in Oman hotel room, inquest hears

By Thomas Parkes | Stone | News | Published:

The death of a man found in a hotel room in Oman will be examined at an inquest later this year.

Cannock Coroner's Court

Christopher Why, from Stone, was found in a room at the Radisson Blu hotel on January 19.

An inquest was opened by the South Staffordshire coroner Andrew Haigh last week at Cannock Coroner's Court.

But it was adjourned due to a lack of information from authorities in the country.

The coroner has listed the cause of Mr Why's death as self harm.

A provisional date for the full inquest has been set for November 7 at Cannock Coroners' Court.
