Open Verdict on Teenager’s Death in Crete

The death of 17-year-old Andre Young back in 2009 at Malia Resort, Crete is yet an open verdict, since there is not enough evidence to lead police authorities of Essex in a certain assumption about the circumstances leading to Andre’s death.

The Greek police provided the UK authorities with so little evidence about the death of the Uttlesford teenager spending his holiday in Crete that his mother was forced to fly to Malia and take pictures of the crime scene herself, hoping that the UK police authorities would be able to lead a more trustworthy investigation than the Greek ones.

The young man had been drinking with his friends in the town of Malia and was last seen between about 1:30am and 3:30am. He was later found by a Romanian farm worker on a building site quite far away from his hotel and main road.

The Greek post-mortem had shown that the teenager had died of head and neck injuries, allegedly after falling from a height, but no tox-screen had been conducted.

The mother of the dead Andre attended an inquest in Chelmsford on Tuesday November 1 and said that “Although there are still lots of unanswered questions about the circumstances leading to Andre’s death, we are trying to move on in a positive way”.

Andre Young was one of the younger brothers of Aston Villa soccer ace Luke Young.
