Findings and upcoming inquests


Inquest findings

Inquest findings (since 2004) as well as non-inquest public interest matters (since 2012) are available below.

Findings are published on this website when an inquest was held or a coroner otherwise orders they be published in the public interest.

A finding is the document handed down by a coroner at the end of an investigation into a death. If possible, the finding will include:

  • who the deceased person is
  • how the person died
  • when the person died
  • where the person died
  • what caused the person to die

If an inquest was held, the findings may include comments or recommendations made by the coroner relating to public health and safety, the administration of justice or ways to prevent similar deaths.


Content in these findings may be distressing to readers. First Nations peoples are warned that findings will contain the names of deceased persons.
