Hanged remand prisoner felt he had ‘demons in his blood’

Posted on 13th March 2017

FAMILY of a remand prisoner who died six days after entering a jail have said they want answers.

Daryl Hargrave, 22, was the second man to die at HMP Winchester in a single week in July, 2015.

He had been remanded to the prison after being arrested following a stabbing in Gosport.
Lawyers acting for his family said he was found dead at 3.11pm on July 19 – 11 minutes after he was supposed to have been observed in his cell. Solicitors said the scheduled observation was missed.

His inquest is due to take place in Winchester from Monday, and his family hope they will learn more of his death.

Clair Hilder, Civil Liberties Senior Associate, is representing the family at the inquest.
