Ipswich: Tribute paid to a man who was found dead in his car

Family and friends of a man, who was discovered dead in his car, have paid a heartfelt tribute to a “dearly loved man”.

The body of David Nunn was found in a car, which was in a field near Ipswich, on October 19 last year. An inquest into the 41-year-old’s death was told that he died as a result of carbon monoxide poisoning.

Mr Nunn was involved with the Millennium Martial Arts Centre, which has now moved to Foxhall Road, in Ipswich. He helped to renovate the centre and members of the club are due to unveil a plaque in his memory at the club in the next few weeks.

Mr Nunn’s family attended the inquest and Freda Bond, Mr Nunn’s mother, said he was loved and respected by the people he knew and that he would be missed by many people.

She said: “He was very much loved by his whole family and his friends, including those at the Millennium Martial Arts Club, where he helped with their new building.”

Suffolk coroner Dr Peter Dean told the inquest that, due to the circumstances surrounding Mr Nunn’s death, it was beyond reasonable doubt that he intended to take his own life.

Before recording a verdict that Mr Nunn took his own life, Dr Dean said: “It seems to be the case that David understood and intended the consequences of his action.”
