The family of a university student whose body was found in her halls of residence after friends raised the alarm are hoping an inquest will provide them with answers regarding her sudden death.
Ceara Thacker, a first year philosophy student at the University of Liverpool, was found dead in May 2018. She was 19-year-old and originally from Bradford.
An inquest examining the events leading up to Ceara’s death is now to take place at Liverpool Coroner’s Court before Area Coroner Anita Bhardwaj.
Agencies including the University of Liverpool and Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust, which had contact with Ceara before her death, will be represented at the inquest.
Ceara started a philosophy degree at the University of Liverpool - her first choice university – in September 2017. She died on 11 May, 2018.
The inquest is due to start on Monday, 16 September, and is scheduled to last for six days.
