An “emotionally unstable” Basingstoke man meant to kill himself after mixing his prescription drugs, an inquest has found.
Rob Mostoles was found dead at his home in Copland Close on October 20, having overdosed just three days after breaking up with his fiancée.
Police found two notes labelled ‘don’t resuscitate’ at the scene, with coroner Andrew Bradley confirming that there was “no doubt” that Mr Mostoles meant to commit suicide after taking a mixture of zopiclone, morphine and mirtazapine.
His body was discovered by his former fiancée of 12 years, Amanda Coventry, who revealed that the 32-year-old had been unable to work since 2008 after injuring his back and wrist in a fall.
She said: “I tried to call him several times because I wanted to leave on good terms but got no response, so I went to the house to check on Rob after work.
“He was emotionally unstable and had always been like that through our whole relationship.”
Basingstoke Law Courts heard how Mr Mostoles had visited the community mental health team at the Bridge Centre on October 17, when he informed psychiatrists that he was struggling to cope and stop thoughts of suicide.
