My family is calling for an inquest into Jeremy Stephens death under the Coroners Act.

Under section 17 of the Coroner’s Act, a coroner, with the approval of the chief coroner, shall hold an inquest where, after conducting an investigation, the chief coroner is of the opinion that an inquest is necessary to

(a) ascertain the identity of the deceased and determine how, when, where and by what means he or she died;
(b) inform the public of the circumstances surrounding a death;
(c) bring dangerous practices or conditions to light and facilitate the making of recommendations to avoid preventable deaths; or
(d) educate the public about dangerous practices or conditions to avoid preventable deaths. 2006, c.29, s 17.
