According to BBC, The Prodigy’s Keith Flint had unspecified amounts of cocaine, alcohol, and codeine in his system when he passed away. The singer died on March 4 as a result hanging, but Senior Coroner for Essex, Caroline Beasley-Murray has since concluded that there was not enough evidence to officially rule it as a suicide or an accident.
Beasley-Murray said the following:
“We will never quite know what was going on in his mind on that date.
I’ve considered suicide. To record that, I would have to have found that, on the balance of probabilities, Mr Flint formed the idea and took a deliberate action knowing it would result in his death.
Having regard to all the circumstances, I don’t find that there’s enough evidence for that.”
The coroner also added that there was not enough evidence to record Flint’s death as an accident where he may have been “larking around and it all went horribly wrong.”
This news comes after The Prodigy recently shared a message regarding mental health:
