A fresh inquiry has been ordered into the death of Pte Geoff Gray at Deepcut barracks 16 years ago. Pte Geoff Gray was one of four recruits that died at the barracks under questionable circumstances. On the 17th December 2001, Pte Gray was found dead while on guard duty with two gunshot wounds to his head. The Army said he killed himself but, once again, an inquest returned an open verdict. Some aspects of his death seem mysterious, including reports that a figure was seen running away from the area and suggestions his body was moved shortly after his death. Frank Swann, independent ballistics expert Frank Swann, who investigated the deaths initially for the police and later the families, said it was “highly unlikely” Pte Gray killed himself. Mr Swann drew the same conclusions in regard to all four of the killings. In regard to Pte Sean Benton, who’s family have won a fresh inquiry due to take place in January, Mr Swann said said it was impossible for Pte Benton to have killed himself. He suggested he had been shot four times from a distance and only once from close range. Pte Benton’s mother Linda has said that she did not believe he had committed suicide. In 2011, Surrey Police were critisised for their handling of the investigations saying vital evidence had been disregarded in the inqury in to the death of Pte Cheryl James back in 1995.
