A DRUG user died of an overdose after mixing heroin with alcohol, an inquest heard.
But Southampton Coroner’s Court heard how the 37-yearold never woke up and died six days later on June 19, of this year.
A post-mortem found Mr Walsh, originally from the Republic of Ireland, had an alcohol blood reading that was equal to four times the drink-driving limit as well as traces of heroin.
