#AceWorldNews – WINSOR – March 27 – Boris Berezovsky’s death was caused by hanging, consistent with self-application of the ligature, said Simon Poole, the Home Office pathologist who carried out the post-mortem examination on the exiled Russian ex-oligarch.
There was no suggestion of a violent struggle involving a third party, RIA Novosti quoted Poole as saying.
The inquest in Windsor’s Guildhall also heard that no suicide note was found after Berezovsky’s body was discovered slumped on the floor at his ex-wife’s luxury property in Ascot, Berkshire, on March 23 last year.
