Shirley Radcliffe, Westminster assistant coroner

Hours earlier the ex- SAS soldier had sent the 27-year-old a text message saying he was going to resign because he had “disgraced” her.

Yesterday Westminster assistant coroner Shirley Radcliffe said the text was “a possible cry for help.

“I cannot be sure he wanted to kill himself”.

She recorded an open verdict.
