McQueen Died of Hanging Asphyxiation


Fashion designer Alexander McQueen's untimely death last week was caused by hanging, an official from the Westminster coroner's court announced Wednesday.

McQueen was found Thursday in a closet of his London apartment, in what coroner's official Lynda Martindill said was death by asphyxiation and hanging. His death has still yet to be formally called a suicide, even though he left a note, according to the Associated Press.

A detective said there were no suspicious circumstances.

McQueen was grieving after the loss of his mother, who died just a week before, on February 2. Her funeral was held the day after he was found dead. The McQueen family appealed to the press to respect their privacy.

McQueen was scheduled to show his fall 2010 collection in Paris next month.
