Inquest hears Southampton driving instructor hanged himself
10:10am Monday 14th October 2013 in News
Southampton Coroner’s Court heard that Mathew Barry’s body was found by police near a car park in Lyndhurst on August 1.
The police had been called by a member of the public, who had noticed that his car had been parked there for two days.
At the hearing, coroner Keith Wiseman was told that the 44-year-old’s family did not know why he had decided to kill himself.
Recording his verdict, Mr Wiseman said: “Sadly I have no alternative but to record a deliberation that Mr Barry took his own life deliberately, and I am sure the family are left in the air about how it occurred.”
