A Lithuanian man hanged himself in Wisbech park after telling friends he was going to kill himself, an inquest heard.
Julius Dyglys (35), of Rose Fair Close, was found dead in Wisbech park on the morning of December 16.
Mr Dyglys had spoken to his ex-partner on the evening before he was found and had apparently told her he was going to hang himself. His sister, when contacted later by police, had also spoken to him and “didn’t appear shocked” when told of her brother’s death.
He was a known drug user and had gone to Trinity Surgery just two weeks before his death, wanting to quit drugs. He told his doctor he had previously taken an overdose of heroin and now wanted to stop using to show his partner he could change.
A post mortem found recreational levels of drugs in his system, including amphetamine and cathinones, some of which have been linked to suicidal tendencies.
Coroner William Morris concluded that Mr Dyglys killed himself.
