33 year old Stephen Swanton disappeared from the family home on 17th September 2015. He was found dead in the Manchester Ship Canal on 16th December 2015.
An Inquest into his death was held at South Manchester Coroner’s Court in Stockport earlier this month. Mr Swanton’s cause of death was recorded as drowning. Mr Swanton’s mother has spoken with the press following the open conclusion reached by the Coroner as she feels that there are still too many unanswered questions surrounding his last days.
Mrs Swanton concerns arose from the findings of the post-mortem examination which revealed that Mr Swanton had a number of injuries including broken nose, missing teeth and a neck injury as well as having a cocktail of drugs in his system.
