The father of Edir Frederico da Costa, known as Edson, who died after being restrained by police has said the family has been left with many unanswered questions.
Mr da Costa said: “Edir’s death at such a young age devastated us as a family and undoubtedly resulted in his mother’s passing a few weeks later.
“We have been left with many unanswered questions....” he added.Oh, I'm not so sure about that.
Edson, 25, died in hospital six days after being stopped in a car by police in Tollgate Road, Beckton, on June 15 last year.
The investigation found that before or during the stop, he had tried to swallow bags found to contain crack cocaine and heroin.The only real 'unanswered question' is why didn't they catch him sooner.
