Ipswich: First picture of tragic young dad who died in the street after night out
ipswich: These are the first pictures of young dad Donatas Kislauskas who died after collapsing in one of Ipswich’s busiest streets.
The 29-year-old, who lived in Wherstead Road, was discovered on the pavement in Queen Street at around 6.50am on Saturday.
Despite people passing the troubled young dad as they made their way home after nights out in the town centre, Mr Kislauskas was left in the freezing conditions.
When paramedics reached him his lips are understood to have turned blue and he was said to be lying in a pool of his own vomit.
Police today renewed appeals for help in piecing together Mr Kislauskas’s last movements in a bid to determine how he died.

It is understood the 29-year-old had been enjoying a night out in Ipswich and had been drunk prior to collapsing on the stretch of road from the Giles statue to the junction with St Nicholas Street.
Ipswich clergyman Rev Paul Daltry told The Star he had been saddened to learn people had walked passed Mr Kislauskas as he lay in the street without stopping to help.
He urged people to look out for their friends on nights out.
“I think that everyone needs to look after each other and to ensure that no friends are ever left alone when intoxicated,” he added.
