Coroner’s inquest into death of Ebony Aaron Wood begins today

The two-day inquest will determine the facts surrounding the 36-year-old’s death

The B.C. Coroners Service is holding a public inquest into the death of Ebony Aaron Wood beginning today (Nov. 14) at 9:30 a.m. at Quesnel Court Services on Barlow Ave.

Wood, 36, was in a car accident Nov. 5. RCMP attended the scene and Wood was taken into custody and put in the back of a police car, a press release said.

Wood complained of chest and shoulder pain, and was transferred to an ambulance to be taken to the hospital. Enroute, Wood left the back of the ambulance, falling to the road and suffering a head injury.

He died Nov. 7.

As Wood was in police custody, an inquest into his death is mandatory under the Coroners Act.

Presiding coroner Donita Kuzma and a jury will hear from witnesses this week (Nov. 14-15) to determine the facts surrounding Wood’s death.

More to come.
