Irene 2022

A Mandatory SAR for 'Irene' was published in October 2022 and written by independent author David Mellor.

Irene passed away at 71 years old at the home she shared with her husband. The post-mortem identified Irene has sustained extensive bruising and substantial injuries, only some of which could be caused by falling. The pathologist deemed the physical injuries were very likely to have been caused by physical assaults. Irene's husband could provide no explanation for her injuries other than her falls or when he prevented her from falling. Irene's husband has since died. 


Review themes include:

  • Domestic abuse in older adults
  • Needs of the family/main care giver
