A 51 year old man described by family members as very caring has died from asphyxiation, a coroner ruled last week.
Kevin Simpson, of Theobald Street in Radlett, died on December 18 last year.
At a recent inquest Herts Coroner Edward Thomas said that Kevin, a coach driver, had been seen by family about an hour before his death, which occurred in a shed.
Paramedics were called to the property, but it was not possible to revive him. A police statement to the Coroner confirmed there was no sign of third party involvement.
Mr Thomas said that medical records showed “nothing significant” and that a post mortem report showed no signs of natural disease.
