A HOMELESS man who was originally from Barnsley but had lived on the streets of an East Yorkshire town died in unknown circumstances, an inquest concluded.
Leon Ziolkowski, 68, had been sleeping rough in Beverley, near Hull, until he was found dead in September.
Coroner Lorraine Harris delivered an open verdict at Hull Coroner’s Court, as there was no way to determine exactly what happened to Mr Ziolkowski - but no evidence of foul play, injury or suspicious circumstances.
We have been at the heart of our community, every week, since 1858. The town and its people have changed dramatically since then but the Chronicle has been a constant.
It’s our belief that news should be available to everyone regardless of their circumstance. But we need a little helping hand to do so.
Production Editor, Ashley Ball, said: "In an ever changing media world, it’s important that news is reported correctly and without any hidden agenda.
Your support allows us to keep holding decision-makers to account and report on everything that happens in the town, good or bad, fairly."
