Blind Items Revealed #6

May 9, 2019

A coroner has given a private investigator 90 days to convince her a recent celebrity death was a murder. The coroner was expected to close the case, but left it open because the coroner was intrigued by what the detective has discovered. Not convinced, but intrigued enough to leave it open for a short time.

Im thinking the family cant collect life insurance if suicide?

Aquagirl said...

@Vita: that could be, but then they’d just have to prove that the death was accidental, not murder.

😩 If there’s something to discover, I hope it is found.

Does it seem like Britain is less likely to rule deaths suicide? Is that in general or only high profile cases?

Lucky13 said...

No, Britain's had a number of cases where a death was ruled as suicide. If it's an accidental suicide - like auto-erotic asphyxiation - it's usually classed as "death by misadventure".

Guesser said...

@Lucky 13,thanks,that's something you rarely hear in the US.

I said all I needed to say in the comments when this was posted. Suffice to say the whole premise of this blind is incorrect as a matter of law and BS as a matter of fact.

The inquest is closed. Open verdict does not mean open and ongoing inquiry. It's done with.

Vita said...

Thanks, Aquagirl! Details go right through the brain sieve of late!

Suicide is usually only excluded for the first two years of a life insurance policy.

Also, who didn't see this coming? Has there ever been a celebrity suicide that Enty didn't say was really a murder?

VikingSong said...

He'd taken a cocktail of drugs. There's no way it was auto erotic asphyxiation. I very much doubt that, in that state, he could "rise to the occasion." It was either suicide or murder imo. I suspect suicide is the more likely of the two, especially as his girlfriend had ended their relationship prior to his death.

emeraldcity said...

A cocktail of drugs usually means he had taken all of them before and not died, so it is impossible to say that it was suicide on purpose unless he left a note or if it was just 'misadventure' basically an accidental overdose.

VikingSong said...

The cocktail of drugs I mentioned was in reference to the belief that he died due to auto erotic asphyxiation. A man with that amount of drugs in his system wouldn't be feeling frisky - much less able to get frisky in the first place..

He had a local GF. The Japanese lady was his wife.

C’est Vrai said...

You can collect on a life insurance policy if it’s murder or natural causes in some cases even an over dose, however in cases of suicide most life insurance policies have a clause that excludes suicide from any type of payout. There may be an addendum added that will include a payout on a suicide after a certain time frame passes but typically suicides are excluded from a life insurance payout.

Dude looked pretty unstable to say the least.
