GH/UK - Mystery remains: Open verdict in death of Charmain Speirs
Essex woman's death in Ghana hotel remains mystery after inquest
The mystery surrounding the death of a British woman at a hotel in Ghana will hang over her husband “for the rest of his life”, her mother has said, after a coroner recorded an open conclusion at her inquest.
Charmain Speirs, 41, who was reportedly pregnant at the time, was found lifeless in the bath of a hotel room in the city of Koforidua in March 2015, two days after her husband Eric Adusah had returned to the UK, the inquest in Chelmsford heard.
Adusah, a Christian preacher from Ghana, was arrested on suspicion of her murder by local police but the case was dropped due to insufficient evidence. An initial postmortem in Ghana gave the medical cause of death as a heroin overdose and a second postmortem eight months later in the UK found no evidence of assault.
