A coroner has concluded the death of a 21-year-old man who died of a sudden cardiac arrest in Newmarket was ‘drug related’.

Rytis Dumbliauskas, of no fixed abode, died on April 26 outside Tesco Express, in Fornham Road, after collapsing in the street.

Yesterday, at an inquest into his death, assistant coroner Kevin McCarthy said that Mr Dumbliauskas had been running away from the supermarket having been suspected of shoplifting when he collapsed. Mr McCarthy said that a post mortem examination had revealed Mr Dumbliauskas had recently taken cocaine and cannabis prior to his death.

The inquest also heard that Mr Dumbliauskas had suffered with cervical lymphadenopathy, a condition that affects the nerves in the neck, which could have contributed to his collapse.

Mr McCarthy gave the cause of death as sudden cardiac arrest in exertion and concluded that his death was ‘drugs related’.
