A MAN who took cocaine and cannabis and drank alcohol hanged himself following an argument, a coroner has heard.

Paul Caisley, 33, of Hercules Street, Portsmouth, was found by another tenant in his bedroom at around 1am on August 3 of this year.

Police and paramedics were called to the scene, where Mr Caisley was pronounced dead.

During an inquest, coroner David Horsley recorded a verdict of suicide. ‘I think he has taken his own life while he was depressed,’ Mr Horsley said.
