Father of two boys killed in hit-and-run driver is found dead

The father of two boys killed in a hit and run has been found dead in a hotel room in Corfu.

Corey Platt-May, aged six, and two-year-old Casper, were hit by a drug-driver in Coventry in February and tragically died from their injuries.

Their father, Reece, who previously told how his and his wife’s lives had been destroyed by the loss, has now been found dead in Greece.

Casper and Corey died after they were knocked down by a suspected drink-driver as they joined their mother and cousins on the trip to the local park in Coventry

A spokesman for West Midlands Police said: ‘Mr Platt-May was found dead in a hotel room in Corfu, Greece during the early hours of Thursday 17 May.

‘His death is not being treated as suspicious. His family has been notified and the matter will be passed to the coroner. Our condolences go to the family who have asked for the media to respect their privacy at this difficult time.’

Two-year-old Casper Platt-May and his brother Corey, six, were out on a half-term trip to the park with their mother, Louise, when they were hit by a car driven by career criminal Robert Brown, who had downed a cocktail of drugs including cocaine. 

The boy’s mother, Louise Platt-May, was pushing Casper’s push-along Mini car when it was demolished by Brown’s vehicle.
