Ipswich: Two men took their lives - Coroner
Two young men who were found hanging at their homes in the town had taken their own lives, a coroner ruled.
Nicholas Greenway, 22, was found hanging at his home in Burrell Road on February 21, while Matthew Tabone, 28, died at his home in John Street on December 8 last year.
Inquests into the two men’s deaths were held at IP City.
The coroner heard that Mr Greenway had been placed in the care of a mental health team for the past three years.
Mr Greenway, who lived in shared accommodation provided by Suffolk Mind, had previously suffered from depression and self harm issues. The day before his death, Mr Greenway was visited by his mother and he gave her no reason to feel concerned.

A separate inquest heard that Mr Tabone, a digital advertising manager, had been suffering from depression and had previous self-harm issues.
Mr Tabone’s hanging body was found by police officers who were called to search his home after he failed to answer phone calls. A post mortem found traces of cocaine and a low level of alcohol in his body.
Coroner Dr Peter Dean read a statement from Mr Tabone’s family, describing him as a well liked man with a passion for music.
Dr Dean said that both men had understood the consequences of their actions and recorded suicide verdicts.
