A St Albans man died after poisoning himself with carbon monoxide at home.
Police discovered the body of Ralph Parrett on March 14 after receiving phonecalls from concerned neighbours who had not seen him in a while.
Officers forced entry into the 54 year old’s property in Radlett Road, Frogmore, and found a note saying that he wanted to end his life.
When they eventually found his body they realised he had been there for quite some time.
A pathologist found there was well above the lethal limit of carbon monoxide in his body with levels of the gas at 69 per cent.
