MEDICAL experts have been unable to establish what caused the death of a 58-year-old Ipswich man.
The body of Alan Brown was found at his home in Queenscliffe Road, near Belstead Road, Ipswich, in July, five weeks after he had last been seen, an inquest into his death heard.
Greater Suffolk Coroner Dr Peter Dean told the inquest at Suffolk County Council's Endeavour House headquarters in Ipswich yesterday, that police had received a call from a friend of the electrical engineer who was concerned about his welfare.
On June 22, a police constable went to Mr Brown's home but could not get a response.
The officer looked through the letterbox and saw a large build up of post.
Mr Brown's body was later found inside the property.
