Alton: Tribute To Man Who Died After Alleged Assault

The family of a father-of-two who died after he was believed to have been assaulted in a flat have described him as a "much-loved young man''.

Adam Cadman suffered serious injuries while in the property in Lansdowne Court, Anstey Road, Alton, Hampshire, on Tuesday.

The 32-year-old was taken by ambulance to the North Hampshire Hospital in Basingstoke in a life-threatening condition and he was pronounced dead on the evening of the following day.

His family said in a statement released through Hampshire police: "Adam will be greatly missed by all of his family and friends.

He was a much loved young man who was both a loving son to his family and a loving father to his two young sons.

"What has happened to Adam is a tragedy that we wouldn't wish on anyone. We would like to thank everyone for their thoughts and condolences but would now appreciate the opportunity to grieve in private.''

A Hampshire police spokesman said: "Officers are continuing to carry out numerous enquiries into the circumstances surrounding his death.''

A 38-year-old woman and a 34-year-old man, both from Farnborough, have been arrested on suspicion of murder and are still being questioned after magistrates extended their custody time by 36 hours.
