Hanged Hailsham man identified

A MAN FOUND hanged dead in his Hailsham home has been identified following a Sussex Police investigation.

John Michael Oswin, aged 48, was sadly found dead at his residence in Archery Walk during the evening of January 22.

Mr Oswin’s family, who do not live in Sussex, have been informed about his death.

Police are not treating the death as suspicious and the matter is now being dealt with by the coroner’s officer.

A postmortem examination was held on January 24 and an inquest will be opened and formally adjourned in due course.

Police had referred the death to the Independent Police Complaints Commission as a matter of standard procedure.

This was in relation to Mr Oswin being interviewed by local officers in connection with an enquiry which has not been disclosed by Sussex Police.

However the Independent Police Complaints Commission after carrying out an initial review, have stated the undisclosed issue will not be investigated.
