A Lithuanian man who was found hanged in the garden shed of his Red Lodge home had been suffering from depression.
Egidijus Urbonas, 37, of White Mullein Drive, was found by a neighbour on the morning of April 7 after his partner found him missing from the home they shared with her three young children.
An inquest sitting in Bury St Edmunds on Thursday heard how police were called to the address and Mr Urbonas was pronounced dead at the scene at approximately 9.20am.
The inquest heard how his partner, who was also from Lithuania, had gone to bed on the evening of April 6, leaving him awake downstairs, and was unable to find him in the house when she later woke up.
She noticed a door had been left open and asked her neighbour for help, who then searched the garden and discovered Mr Urbonas hanged in the shed.
Suffolk Coroner Dr Peter Dean told the inquest how Mr Urbonas, who had been a manual worker, had left a suicide note at the house, written in Lithuanian.
Dr Dean read a report containing background information from Mr Urbonas’s partner, which detailed his “very complicated” life and some of the difficulties in his personal life, such as previous suicide attempts and the mental health issues he suffered from, including a depressive disorder.
He said Mr Urbonas “regularly drank alcohol to excess” and had been drinking the night before he died, adding that medical reports showed a raised level of alcohol had been found in his blood.
The inquest heard a post mortem examination gave the cause of death as hanging.
Dr Dean said: “Clearly there were difficulties in his life and it does appear to be the case in all the circumstances that he understood and intended the consequences of his actions.”
He recorded a verdict that Mr Urbonas took his own life and extended his condolences to family and friends.
