Tony Burry, 31, was found lying face down on his bed in the Canvey home he shared with his mother and her partner.
He had been collected from Chelmsford Prison on Wednesday, June 8 - the day before he died...No, he didn't work there!
On the day of his death Mr Burry, who was prescribed methadone during his time in prison, went upstairs to his bedroom at about 5.30pm.
He spoke to a neighbour out of the window, who said he looked unwell.
Just 30 minutes later Mr Burry was found by a friend who had arrived at the house to visit him.
CPR was performed but he was pronounced dead.
Cigarettes, two used syringes and other drugs paraphernalia were found in the room. A post-mortem examination found the cause of death to be intoxication by heroin and cocaine...*wipes away tears* Oh, it's like the death of Little Nell, isn't it?
Coroner Caroline Beasley-Murray, who gave her condolences to the family on the “loss of Tony in these tragic circumstances”, recorded his death as an accident.There really needs to be a cause of death that covers these circumstances far more accurately...
