Independent investigation published on care given to Norfolk schizophrenic

An independent investigation into the care given to a paranoid schizophrenic who killed and decapitated his friend is being released today.

Garnet Hooper, 54, was detained indefinitely in a secure hospital after he pleaded guilty to the manslaughter of Mr Rayner in 2006, on the grounds of diminished responsibility.

At the time of the incident the patient was under the care of Norfolk and Waveney Mental Health Trust (NWMH).

NHS East of England commissioned an independent investigation which is being published today.
