7 days after being taken to  a place of safety   * by Essex Police, my son was dead.

As a mother struggling to know what was best for Matthew, I felt relief that he was finally in a place of safety and under professional care
I was advised not to visit for the first week and allow him to settle on the ward.

The next time I got see my son, he was a crime scene on a hospital trolley.
When I lent down to kiss him, I was told,

don't touch, he’s a crime scene

An Article2 Jury led Coroners Inquest in Jan 2015 could not conclude Suicide. The verdict was left OPEN.

A statement read out to the court said:

 Matthew Leahy had been subjected to a series of multiple failings and missed opportunities over a long period of time

Evidence has been destroyed. Papers falsified.

Staff not traceable.
Currently there is an ongoing Health and Safety Investigation

I know I‘ve not been given the full picture into what happened to my son on the day he died

He was found with four possible five needle wounds in his groin, GHB (the date rape drug) in his blood stream. Blood in his stomach and bruises consistent with finger grasp on his ankles.
Matthew had called home four days before he died begging to come home, saying

I’m in hell in here. Please help me. I'm being drugged and raped on the ward.

We told him to call the police. He did exactly that. Before the police arrived staff had medicated our son some more. The police deemed him of no capacity to be examined.

We have later discovered no mental capacity assesment was ever done. Police failed to take any swabs, they failed to seize any clothing.

I have been fighting for the last seven years, since Matthew died, for answers.

Human Rights have been breached.

Just recently The Parliamentary Health Service Ombudsman produced a report   and Sir Norman Lamb MP   has backed my call for an urgent Public Inquiry.

Sir Norman Lamb MP

Currently Government is denying this. There is so much delay and people continue to die

Inquest Group Supports

I have a petition running to have this case discussed in Parliament. It has already exceeded the 100000 to be considered for a debate in Parliament, but let’s keep the pressure on.

Please sign this petition too.


I am fighting large establishments with unlimited resources and a vested interest in stopping any public inquiry.

The Health Trust responsible for Matthews‘ and other deaths are Goliath to my David.

Please help me to fight for the Truth.
