The Coroner appointed Professor Anthony Risdon of Great Ormond Street Hospital despite objections from the
family of a conflict of interests after its paediatricians recommended a "Do Not Resuscitate", "withholding and withdrawing"
of treatment, against the parents wishes, without an order of the court.
Professor Risdon states "Date Taken 26 10 00" referring to the date the organs were taken. He adds that Sunaina's
eyes were "depressed".
He describes a "scab" on the arm but does not investigate it. He does not refer to the drug overdoses
or the medical file. He expressed an opinion before the post-mortem, that there was no need for a post mortem, "What
do you expect with Edwards?" He failed to carry out a vitreous test on eye jelly that would show the levels of drugs
at the time of death. He failed to do chromosome analysis. The report is described as "provisional" but it has
never been updated to date.
