Inquest opened into death of millionaire

THE INQUEST of a Brampton millionaire who was found dead at his home, was opened yesterday in Lincoln.

Successful businessman Jonathan Wraith was found dead at his home estate at Bellwood Grange Farm on Sunday 27th December 2009.

He has been described as ‘a kind man who loved socialising and shooting.’

The 35-year-old father of two owned and ran the Brampton and Thonock Park Shoot, close to Torksey.

The shooting range is very popular amongst the rich and affluent and had previously been visited by the Zara Phillips, the daughter of Princess Anne.

Mr Wraith had focussed on running the shooting business since selling a portable accomodation firm which he ran with his father in 2007 for £30million.

His father David Wraith is a former chairman of Scunthorpe United Football Club and one-time director of car leasing firm Godfrey Davis.

The inquest opened yesterday (Wednesday) at Lincoln Cathedral Centre.
