Coroner’s verdict: shock reason for Prodigy rocker’s death
The inquest heard Keith Flint's body was found by a friend.
Prodigy singer Keith Flint had a cocktail of cocaine, alcohol and codeine in his system when he died, but may not have meant to take his own life, a UK inquest has heard.
The 49-year-old was found dead at his home in Essex, southeast of London, on March 4.

The Coroner’s Court heard that Keith died due to hanging, however Senior Coroner for Essex Caroline Beasley-Murray recorded an open conclusion into his death, adding there was not enough evidence to say he had taken his own life, reports the BBC.
Ms Beasley-Murray said: "We will never quite know what was going on in his mind on that date.
"I've considered suicide. To record that, I would have to have found that, on the balance of probabilities, Mr Flint formed the idea and took a deliberate action knowing it would result in his death.
"Having regard to all the circumstances I don't find that there's enough evidence for that."

The coroner also said there was insufficient evidence to record the singer's death as an accident where he may have been "larking around and it all went horribly wrong".
On Tuesday, The Prodigy's Twitter account posted a message about mental health and urged people to not "suffer in silence".
Thousands of music lovers lined the streets of Essex on March 29 for the funeral of the star, who had number one hits with 'Breathe' and 'Firestarter'.
