Serena Perry Inquest Looking Increasingly Complex

The inquest into the death of Serena Perry appears to be becoming increasingly complex, with Horizon Health, the SJPD, and the Perry family all looking to represent their interests in court.

Police Chief Bill Reid tells CHSJ News the SJPD is pursuing standing in the inquest now because a court has already granted Horizon health the ability to cross-examine and call witnesses. He says the police want the public and those effected by Perry's death to know they did their due diligence.

Questions have been raised about the amount of time it took hospital officials to notify police of Perry's death, as well as the handling of the crime scene itself.
