Investigation as insurance worker falls to his death

Investigation as insurance worker falls to his death An inquest was opened and adjourned yesterday following the death of an insurance worker in Colchester.

Terence Joseph Pimm, who most recently worked for Direct Line Insurance in Ipswich, died on the pavement following a fall from the seventh floor of a car park in Colchester on August 25.

According to a report in the Harwich and Manningtree Standard, Pimm died of multiple injuries with Essex Coroner Caroline Beasley-Murray commenting that the deceased had a history of mental health issues and had dealings with the police shortly before his death.

Essex Police has been asked to offer details of the contact they had with Mr Pimm and the circumstances prior to his death.

Pimm, known to friends as TJ, lived in Dovercourt with his parents. His sister Bekki told the publication that “for a long time he had mental health issues.”

Toxicology tests, meant to discover if there was alcohol or drugs in his system, have not yet been returned.
