Open verdict on man found dead in flat
5:00am Friday 4th October 2013 in News
IT will never be known whether a Southampton man killed himself or died in an accident.
A coroner recorded an open decison into the death of Kishore Trivedi.
The 53-year-old was discovered by a cleaner at his studio flat in Malmesbury Road, Southampton, on June 24, shortly after he was due to be evicted.
Southampton Coroners Court was told that Mr Trivedi had been a heavy drinker and was separated from his wife.
A note was found near his body referring to his wife and how he would better off out of the world because he had made a mess of things, the hearing heard.
Dr Vipul Foria, in his evidence, said that the cause of death had been unusually low blood sugar and that it was possible that there had been an overdose of insulin, although this could not be detected in tests.
But Southampton Coroner said there was not enough proof to suggest he had taken his own life or that it was accidental and therefore recorded an open determination.
