You asked: Why might a death be subject to an inquest?

An inquest will be held if the cause of death is still in doubt after a post-mortem examination, or if the death wasn’t from natural causes. Sometimes a coroner holds an inquest even if the death was from natural causes (for example if the person was in custody when they died).
