A HAMPSHIRE man was found dead in his home six days after he was last seen, an inquest heard.

Southampton Coroner’s Court heard how Thomas Heber-Percy’s body was found after he hadn’t contacted his family in Singapore for several days.

His sister-in-law was only able to gain access to the Chandler’s Ford home on February 14 this year when she found his body.

The inquest heard that the 46-year-old from Tomkins Close had been fighting depression for many years.

Central Hampshire coroner Grahame Short determined that he died of suicide.
