THE father of a chef whose mystery death “ripped his family apart” said he needs answers to come to terms with their loss.

Scott Torrens, 21, died at his home in Rhosddu on Saturday, November 2, after suffering a suspected seizure.

His family said he went to sleep and simply never woke up.

On the eve of an inquest into Scott’s death – due to take place today – Nigel Torrens said he had been unable to move on from his son’s death as he still does not know how or why he died.

Mr Torrens, 50, from Rhostyllen, said: “We still don’t know how Scott died.

“We haven’t been able to get any closure.

“It was such a shock when he died. He was a healthy lad who worked hard. There is nothing health wise or any conditions that we are aware of that would have cause Scott’s death.

“The not knowing has just made this harder.” Scott was renowned as a talented chef working at the Croes Howell Restaurant, near Llay.

He had also won Cheshire Young Chef of the Year.

Mr Torrens said he hopes today’s inquest hearing in Ruthin will give him and the family some of the answers they so desperately need.

“We just want some answers,” he said.

“Hopefully, we will be able to get these and it will allow us to get some closure on Scott’s death.”

Scott is the second child Mr Torrens has lost.

His older son Aaron died in a car crash in Rhosrobin in July 2009, aged 20.

Scott, who went to Ysgol Morgan Llwyd and later studied catering at Yale College, both in Wrexham, is also survived by his mother, Julie Jones, stepdad Robert Jones, brothers Kieron and Ieuan, sister Grace and niece Brooke.
