A Coroner’s inquest will be held into the tragic death of Broome man Josh Warneke, it’s been confirmed. The West Australian understands although no dates for an inquest have been listed, Mr Warneke’s mother Ingrid Bishop was recently informed by the Coroner’s office that an inquest will be held into her son’s death. Ms Bishop told The West she was pleased with the news. “The announcement is incredible news for us and is obviously welcome,” Ms Bishop said on Thursday. “Albeit, it’s another lengthy process for the family but at least it’s progress.” Mr Warneke’s body was found on the outskirts of Broome on February 26, 2010, after he spent a night out with friends and decided to walk home to the Roebuck Estate. Witnesses have previously told police they saw him about 2.45am walking near the intersection of Old Broome Road and Short Street. A taxi driver found his body on the side of the road less than 10 minutes later. He had suffered a serious head injury. The case has already led to one man — Gene Gibson — being wrongfully convicted over the killing. A scathing Corruption and Crime Commission investigation found the original police inquiry was botched by officers who failed to follow proper procedures. Police sent their investigation files to the State Coroner more than two years ago.
