The results of the inquest into Keith Flint’s death have turned up inconclusive. According to The Guardian, Essex coroner Caroline Beasley-Murray landed on an “open conclusion” in terms of whether or not The Prodigy frontman’s death could be treated as a suicide.

In a hearing, Beasley-Murray noted that suicide was only a consideration and not a final answer. “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,” she explained.

Flint was found dead in his Essex home earlier this March. The initial coroner’s report deemed his cause of death as hanging, with toxicology reports showing traces of cocaine, alcohol and codeine in his blood during the time of his death. He was 49.
