Alexander McQueen Ingested Cocaine, Sleeping Pills, Tranquillizers

Earlier today, a coroner told members of the press at the Westminster Coroner’s Court in London what he found in his investigation into the suicide of designer Alexander McQueen who hanged himself in his London home in February. Dr. Paul Knapman revealed blood samples taken shortly after the designer’s death contained cocaine, sleeping pills, and tranquillizers, Women’s Wear Daily reported. He added that McQueen killed himself “while the balance of his mind was disturbed.”

He proceeded to paraphrase the designer’s suicide note which was written on the back of the book The Descent of Man. It had instructions for his burial and ended with, “Please look after my dogs. Sorry, I love you. Lee.”

This was the final investigation into the designer’s death.
