A police investigation into the discovery of former paratrooper Christopher Alder's body in a mortuary in Hull and the later exhumation of Grace Kamara from his grave has concluded that there will be no proscutions over the mix-up.
The South Yorkshire Police investigation team presented a detailed and extensive investigation report to the Crown Prosecution Service to seek formal advice relating to a number of mortuary staff to establish if they had committed criminal offences relative to the circumstances of the case.
After careful consideration of all the circumstances and the evidence available, the Crown Prosecution Service have concluded that there is no realistic prospect of a conviction for either misconduct in a public office, or the prevention of the lawful burial of a body.
Mr Alder died while in custody at Hull's Queens Gardens Police Station. His body was discovered at the morgue at Hull Royal Infirmary in 2011 - more than a decade after his family thought they had buried him.
An investigation is underway at Hull Royal Infirmary, where Lucy Holmes was told she had bruised her leg after falling. It was badly broken.
“For patient confidentiality reasons, we are unable to comment on the specific details of Miss Holmes’ treatment. We understand the family is in contact with our Patient Advice and Liaison Team and we will be happy to discuss their concerns and respond to them directly in due course.”
