A coroner (Dr Paul Knapman) has ruled that Alexander Mosley, 39 (son of FIA President, Max Mosley) and co-founder of the Hereford Road Restaurant, died of non-dependent drug abuse at his home on Notting Hill on the 5th May. The inquest was told that Alexander had been using “hard drugs [heroin & crack cocaine] for many years and had recently been treated for depression. Later toxicology tests found large traces of cocaine in his urine alongside smaller traces of other substances including ketamine, MDMA (ecstasy) and heroin or morphine.

The post-mortem examination revealed no definite cause of death, although puncture-type wounds were apparently found around Mr Mosley’s elbows and groin.

The BBC reports that his cleaner (Samara Fodoti) found him slumped at his desk wearing only his boxer shorts and surrounded by crack pipes, syringes, needles, powders and things used for taking drugs.
