5:48pm 7th August 2013

Attempts are being made to trace the family of a homeless man who died in Dorchester.

58 year old Thomas Crookall's death on the 2nd August is not being treated as suspicious.

Thomas was born in Wigan and its thought he had two brothers who he hadn't seen for 30 years - but the Coroner has no information of where they live.

Coroner's Officer Gill Thorpe said:

"Thomas was born in Wigan in Lancastershire but lived in Dorset for some time with no fixed abode, mainly in the Poole area.

"I need to find Thomas' next of kin so that I can finalise my enquiries on behalf of the coroner.

"I'd be grateful if any of his family could contact me as soon as possible on 01305 224780."
