A family are in mourning after a 27-year-old man is believed to have died suddenly as he slept in his bed at home.
Emergency services were called at 5.15pm on Saturday (February 21) to an address in New Street, Aylesbury after Qasim Shah was found to be unresponsive in his bed, but sadly paramedics were unable to save him.
Town councillor Niknam Hussain is a friend of the family and yesterday he paid tribute to Qasim.
Mr Hussain said: “Qasim’s family are in shock and horror that he passed away at home in his sleep.
“They are distraught. This is a young man who was taken too soon.
“He was an active member of the local community and had friends in all walks of life. He was special to his family and special to his friends.”
Qasim was born at the Royal Bucks Hospital and attended school at Elmhurst and Quarrendon, living in Aylesbury his whole life.
He will be buried in a ceremony at Aylesbury Cemetery on the Tring Road tomorrow afternoon.
Police have confirmed the incident is being treated as an unexplained death at this stage and are awaiting post mortem results.
