A MAN with learning difficulties died after taking a cocktail of heroin and cocaine.
Paul Lawton, of North Street, Lockwood, was found slumped on the floor of his bedroom by his flatmate.
A Huddersfield inquest was told that Mr Lawton, 27, originally from Dewsbury, was known to smoke cannabis, but is not believed to have taken any class A drugs before.
But in the days before his death on May 1, 2006, he was being investigated by the police after a “serious allegation” was made against Mr Lawton, who did voluntary community work.
Det Sgt Mike Smith said the allegation was made in the days before Mr Lawton’s death.
He added: “It was brought to his attention ... it may have been a worry to him.”
But coroner Roger Whittaker ruled that there was no suggestion that Mr Lawton intended to take his own life.
High levels of morphine, heroin and cocaine were discovered in his body.
Pathologist Dr George Thomas gave the cause of death as intoxication by heroin.
Mr Whittaker said: “There is no evidence he intended to take his own life as a result of the police investigations.”
He recorded a verdict of death by abuse of drugs.
