Jurors in the inquest of Amarnih Lewis-Daniel have returned a narrative verdict, saying it is unclear whether she intended to take her own life.

But they chose not to make any comment on a series of missed opportunities in the weeks before her death to intervene over her deteriorating mental health.

They also made no comment on whether a years-long wait for a gender clinic appointment had contributed to her worsening mental state.

Amarnih, a 24-year-old trans woman, was found dead in a car park at the foot of Highview House in Chadwell Heath, where she lived, on March 17, 2021.

The jury heard evidence that she was born male but began identifying as female from a very young age as she grew up in Walthamstow.

At the time of her death she had been on the waiting list for the Tavistock gender clinic for two-and-a-half years.

Amarnih’s probation officer testified that she complained constantly of the long wait and her eagerness to fully transition.

In the meantime, the court heard she had begun taking unprescribed hormones.

Jurors recorded Amarnih’s gender on their Record of Inquest form as female.

Asked to describe the circumstances of her death, jurors wrote: “Amarnih fell from the seventh floor window of her flat, [at] Highview House, Hatch Grove, Romford, on the 17 March 2021.”

The building is actually off of Whalebone Lane in Chadwell Heath, Dagenham, slightly over the border from Romford.

The jury’s narrative conclusion was: “Amarnih took the action that led to her falling from her seventh floor window. The evidence does not fully disclose whether she intended the outcome to be fatal.”

The court had heard how on March 17, the fire brigade was called to a blaze inside Amarnih’s flat, which she is believed to have started herself.

Her body was found in the car park underneath her lounge window. She had suffered severe head injuries, consistent with a fall from height.

Jurors were sent out to make a decision on Wednesday and, after continuing deliberations on Thursday morning, they returned a unanimous narrative conclusion.
