Family call for fresh inquest into death of business analyst who fell to his death
17 January 2013
The family of a 48-year-old business analyst who plunged to his death in Euston has called for a fresh inquest into his death after months of scandal at St Pancras Coroner’s Court.
Richard Chang fell from the fifth floor of Abbey National’s Triton Square offices in July 2004. The coroner, Dr Andrew Reid, recorded a verdict of “suicide” after a post mortem by pathologist Dr Freddy Patel gave the cause of death as “consistent with a fall from height”.
The family has never accepted the official findings and is now redoubling its efforts to have the case reheard after Dr Reid was suspended then resigned from office last month and Dr Patel was struck off the medical register.
Mr Chang’s younger sister, Jacqueline Chang, said: “Obviously when someone dies the way my brother did and we raise those questions, everyone thinks we are making it up.
