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.
