Mr. Thalassitis was found on March 16, just before 9:30 clock in a park in the recreation area Church Street in Enfield hung. Today's investigation revealed that he had made his intentions in notes to his family clear.

Senior medical examiner Andrew Walker, recording a suicide attack in the North London courthouse, said, "A number of notes and messages have been left in which Mr. Thalassitis has clearly expressed his intention to end his life."

An official who visited the scene said that a black notebook had been found near the death of Mr. Thalassitis.

PC Emma Clauson gave hints: "I looked through the notebook, which was a sort of combination of diary, letters and positive thoughts.

"On the back of the journal were a few notes addressed to his family."

The study also found that toxicological results showed that cocaine, alcohol and paracetamol were in his system at the time of death.

Walker added, "Blood and urine levels are consistent with alcohol poisoning," and studies in the US have found that the combination has 16 times increased the likelihood of someone's death.

Dave Read, manager and agent of Mr. Thalassitis, read a statement on behalf of the family and said, "We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your kind messages and their support during this very difficult time.

She later said, "I think it's important to keep his memory alive and to remember the importance of why this happened, and to change your own life, which has been terrible, horrible, terrible with Mike."
