Wednesday 1st August 2018:

The body of the man who was found dead in the Elm Hill/Copheap area of Warminster on the afternoon of Saturday 21st July 2018, has been identified as 33 year-old Daniel Alan Griffiths.

A spokesman from Salisbury Coroner's Court said Mr. Griffiths, who lived in the Warminster area, died of what seems to be self-inflicted stab wounds to the chest. The emergency services attended the scene and the time of death was confirmed by a paramedic as 3.45 p.m.

Wiltshire Police confirmed that a knife was found at the scene, and were keen to stress that crime had been ruled out. A spokeswoman for Wiltshire Police said "The death of Mr. Griffiths is not being treated as suspicious."

A post mortem has revealed 'penetrated stab trauma to the left hemi-thorax.' Further toxicology reports will be undertaken. An inquest, opened at Salisbury Coroner's Court by Assistant Coroner Ian Singleton on Thursday 26th July, was adjourned to a date to be arranged later.
