Man found dead at caravan park named as Sean Boy Finney
THE man who died at a caravan park near Selby has been named as Sean Boy Finney.
Mr Finney was found unconscious in a caravan at The Ranch park in Cliffe, at just after 3am on Sunday, and was pronounced dead at the scene despite repeated efforts by paramedics and police officers to resuscitate him.
Detectives investigating Mr Finney’s death have described it as “sudden and unexplained”, and believe it may have been connected with a fight at the caravan park on Saturday night.
Detective Chief Inspector Maria Taylor, who is leading the investigation, said: “I understand that there was a large number of people at the caravan park on the evening of Saturday, November 30.
“If you were present and have not yet come forward, I urge you to contact the police straight away, as you may have vital information that could help my investigation. I am particularly keen to speak to anyone who may have witnessed the man being assaulted or noticed a disturbance and urge them to get in touch.”
A police spokesman yesterday (WEDS), confirmed that detectives investigating Mr Finney’s death did not believe a weapon had been involved in the attack, but the cause of death had not yet been confirmed.
He said a file was being prepared for the coroner, and an inquest into Mr Finney’s death would be opened at a later date.
Anyone with information should contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
