BOSSIP reported last week that Alexander McQueen’s death was indeed a suicide. The coroner’s report is in, and it is confirmed that he hanged himself:
Fashion designer Alexander McQueen hanged himself in his wardrobe and left a suicide note, a coroner told a London inquest Wednesday. McQueen, 40, was found dead at his London apartment Thursday. The cause of death was asphyxia and hanging, said coroner’s officer Lynda Martindill.
A police officer told the inquest that McQueen’s death was “nonsuspicious,” according to Martindill. “The coroner said a note had been found and is being looked at by the police,” Martindill said, without offering details about the note.
Eccentric singer Lady Gaga, who called herself a big fan and wore McQueen’s alien-inspired stilettos in a recent video, dedicated her performance at Tuesday night’s BRIT Awards in London to the designer.
