Gary Speed Inquest

November 29, 2011 by staff 

Gary Speed Inquest, Wales manager Gary Speed’s body was found by his wife Louise, an inquest has revealed. The Wales football manager’s inquest was opened and adjourned, after a coroner confirmed there were no suspicious circumstances surrounding his death. A full hearing will take place at Warrington Coroner’s Court at a later date. It comes after friends rebuffed speculation about his private life, which had been prompted by the 42-year-old’s apparent suicide.

The married father-of-two was discovered hanged in the garage of his home in the village of Huntington, near Chester, on Sunday morning. Politicians in the Welsh Assembly observed a minute’s ahead of this afternoon’s Plenary session in the Senedd, Cardiff Bay.

Speed’s family said they had been “overwhelmed” with messages of support and condolence.

Speaking outside the star’s home, Speed’s agent and best man at his wedding, Hayden Evans, said: “Gary’s family would sincerely like to thank all the people that have sent messages of condolence and tributes in what is a very difficult time.

“We have been overwhelmed by the support and it really has helped.

“We would ask that the family are now given the respect of some privacy to just grieve on their own.”

In an interview with The Sun newspaper Mr Evans said Speed had not had any marital problems prior to his death.

“Louise is saying that’s not the case. She just doesn’t understand it.

“They were happily married and anyone who knows them will tell you that. This is why it’s a mystery.”

And when asked if the former midfielder had experienced bouts of depression, he added: “None whatsoever.

“The one thing the family and me as one of his closest friends would totally refute is that. There was no indication of problems and never has been.”
