CHELMSFORD, UK (CelebrityAccess) — New details have emerged about the death of Prodigy singer Keith Flint, including that he had unspecified amounts of cocaine, alcohol, and codeine in his system when he died on March 4th.

According to the BBC, an inquest into the death by the Chelmsford Coroner’s Court heard Flint’s official cause of death was due to hanging.

However, Senior Coroner for Essex Caroline Beasley-Murray declined to offer a determination that Flint, who was 49, had taken his own life, noting that there was insufficient evidence to make a determination.

“We will never quite know what was going on in his mind on that date,” Beasley-Murray told the inquest, according to the BBC.

“I’ve considered suicide. To record that, I would have to have found that, on the balance of probabilities, Mr Flint formed the idea and took a deliberate action knowing it would result in his death,” she added. “Having regard to all the circumstances I don’t find that there’s enough evidence for that.”

Beasley-Murray also told the court Mr. Flint’s family and band manager did not wish to attend the inquest.

On Tuesday, The Prodigy made a series of posts on their Twitter account addressing mental health.
