AN INQUEST has opened into the death of a man who was found unresponsive in his home.

Benjamin John Lake, 39, was found unconscious by paramedics after emergency services were called to his flat in Poole.

Senior coroner for Dorset, Racheal Griffin, opened the inquest into his death at Bournemouth Town Hall on July 4.

Coroner’s officer, Matt Cave, told Dorset Coroner’s Court that Benjamin was single and unemployed at the time of his death.

On June 6 police and paramedics were called to Benjamin’s home address in Princess Road after reports of an unresponsive male.

His death was confirmed at the scene and police said there were no suspicious circumstances.

A postmortem conducted by Dr Stolte on June 13 found Benjamin’s provisional cause of death to be multiple drug intoxication.

Ms Griffin adjourned the inquest into his death until March 4, 2025 at 10am.

She also requested statements from Benjamin’s family, GP, police and alcohol, drug or mental health teams if he was known to them.
