A cycle shop manager from west Suffolk hanged himself while on police bail, an inquest heard.
David Kelleher, 39, was found hanged in his Newmarket flat on May 2 last year.
During yesterday’s inquest into his death, coroner Kevin McCarthy recorded a verdict of suicide.
The inquest heard Mr Kelleher was on police bail at the time of his death – though no details of his alleged offence were disclosed.
His failure to answer bail at Bury St Edmunds Police Investigation Centre led to concerns for his safety and a police officer visited his flat.
