Hanged man's intentions "unclear"

First published in News

A 39-year-old man sent two text messages to a former girlfriend the day before hanging himself at Bramble Hall Farm in Pembroke, an inquest has heard.

Alan Michael Jones, an unemployed father of four, of no fixed abode, was found dead on August 12th.

The inquest heard Mr Jones sent his former partner two text messages on August 11th, which had concerned her and she replied but did not hear anything back.

A post mortem examination found mephedrone, amphetamine and MDMA in Mr Jones’ body, which suggested recreational use and was not thought to have contributed to his death.

A post-mortem report concluded it was not possible to determine whether Mr Jones was under the effects of the drugs at the time of his death and the cause of death was hanging.

Pembrokeshire Coroner Mark Layton recorded a narrative verdict and said that while Mr Jones had used a ligature “the question of intention remains unclear”.
