Master's Student Tragically Kills Self After Years Of Battling Ill-Health

A Master's student tragically killed himself with a deadly concoction of yew tree poison he gathered from his garden, an inquest heard today.

Finnian Lytle, from Brighton, mixed the toxic plant matter together before drinking it and taking prescription drugs and going to bed.

The 30-year-old left a notebook filed with heartfelt messages to his partner and thanked the doctors who had kept him alive through a series of medical problems and apologised 'for letting them down'.

His partner of five years Elly Morris returned to the flat they shared late in the evening of May 18 this year to find a 'do-not-disturb' sign on the bedroom door.

When she later went in she found her partner dead next to a notebook filled with suicide messages.

An ambulance was called to the home at 11.15pm but rigor mortis had already set in and paramedics pronounced him dead at 11.20pm.

The inquest heard that Mr Lytle, who was diagnosed with a personality disorder and had struggled with swallowing the tablets for his liver condition, had taken an overdose in February and had spent a month in hospital as a result. May his soul rest in peace.
