Man's death in aged care home referred to Coroner

POLICE will refer the death of a 92-year-old man at the Grafton Aged Care Home in South Grafton on Wednesday night to the Coroner for further investigation.

Media outlets said staff at the facility called police when the man was found dead in his bed about 10.30pm with minor facial injuries which would not be explained.

Inspector Murray Gillett from Grafton police confirmed that no one had been charged over the death and the matter was being referred to the Coroner.

The Daily Examiner left a message for the manager of the Grafton Aged Care Home but the call was not returned.

Prime7 said on Thursday night that staff at the facility were devastated by the circumstances of the death.
