Cambridge students' twin tragedy
Saturday 16 October 2010
Two students at a Cambridge University college have died within days of each other.
George Starling, who was studying engineering at Peterhouse, was found by police at his student apartment in Fitzwilliam Street on 4 October, the university said.
Reports said the 19-year-old was a close friend of Mingwei Tan, who was killed four days earlier in a suspected hit-and-run incident. The 20-year-old medical student was found in the road with fatal injuries in Haverstock Hill, north London, early on 30 September.
The Cambridge News quoted Mr Starling's father, Lt-Col John Starling, as saying the pair were good friends. A few months ago, Mr Starling, from Uffington, near Swindon, found his mother's body after she died suddenly in her sleep, the newspaper said.
