12:00pm Thursday 7th February 2013 in News
THREE people have been charged with drug offences following the death of a man in his Bournemouth flat.
Scott Gowing-Wilks was found dead in an apartment at the Lansdowne on May 21 last year.
An inquest into the 20-year-old’s death was opened that month and heard that a post mortem examination was carried out but no cause of death could be ascertained. Toxicology tests were due to be carried out and a full inquest will be heard later this year.
Following his death police arrested five Bournemouth men on suspicion of the illegal supply of drugs.
This week Dorset Police confirmed that two 26-year-old Bournemouth men have been charged with supply of class A drugs and bailed to appear at Bournemouth Magistrates’ Court on Thursday February 21.
A 28-year-old Bournemouth man has been charged with possession of class B drugs and has been bailed to return to the same court on Tuesday February 26.
A fourth man, John Guy Courtenay Kershaw, 22, appeared in court in December after being found with three-and-a-half grams of MDMA and some cannabis following the discovery of Mr Gowing-Wilks body.
Bournemouth University student Kershaw, now of Cardigan Road in Bournemouth, was fined £80 by Bournemouth Magistrates after admitting possession of the class A and class B drugs.
