A FATHER-of-three hanged himself after his partner left him, an inquest heard.
The Huddersfield hearing was told yesterday that Amer Hussain, 35, was found hanging from a loft cavity by neighbour Philip Woolley on January 25.
Mr Hussain's partner, Nadia Jabeen, had left him in November last year and in a note left by Mr Hussain he wrote he could not live without her.
Ms Jabeen has since discovered she is expecting Mr Hussain's baby. He has three children from his marriage.
Taxi driver Mr Hussain, of Moor End Lane, Dewsbury, had been suffering from depression since the relationship broke down.
On November 25 he sent two pictures to Ms Jabeen's mobile phone. The first showed him stabbing his stomach with a knife and the second showed the deep wound.
Ms Jabeen was living in Bradford and did not reply.
Mr Hussain later sent text messages to her sister, Sadia Bona, saying he wanted to kill himself.
But she did not act and in a statement read out she said: "I thought he was bluffing."
Mr Woolley described Mr Hussain as a friendly neighbour.
"In late 2004 Nadia moved out with her two children and Mr Hussain gave me a key, so I could turn his burglar alarm off if I needed to," he said.
"On January 25, Amer's friend came round because he had not seen him. His car was in the drive. I got my key, but his key was in the back of the door. I pushed it out and opened the door."
He found Mr Hussain's body upstairs.
Ms Jabeen was not at the inquest, but a statement from her was read out.
It said: "I left the house on November 17. It was not a permanent arrangement. I just needed some space.
"He wanted me to go home, but I needed more time.
"He sent me a picture message on my phone. It showed a knife blade to his abdomen. Then he sent another, showing the wound. I thought this was very disturbing."
Coroner Roger Whittaker recorded a suicide verdict.
