The tragedy of a Stoke Poges father who was found dead the day before his daughter’s engagement party has left his family and a coroner mystified.

An inquest into the death of Wajid Hussain, who died on March 14 aged 46, took place at Beaconsfield Coroners’ Court today (Tuesday).

At the hearing, coroner Crispin Butler told the court how Mr Hussain had been found hanging in his family home, but that there was “no evidence” of intent to kill himself.

Considering the evidence surrounding Mr Hussain’s unexpected death, both Mr Butler and Mr Hussain’s family were unable to think of a motive for suicide.

Looking at reports from family and friends, Mr Butler explained that Mr Hussain, who was born in Slough, was in a “happy mood” the day before his death and was “excited” for his daughter’s engagement party, which was set to take place the day after he died.

The court heard how Mr Hussain had just had his hair cut for the event and was in “good spirits”, having recently received his COVID-19 vaccine.

While the court did hear that Mr Hussain was an occasional drug user, the coroner did not come across anyone who thought he was troubled, and he had not indicated to anyone that he was planning on taking his own life.

Mr Butler said: “I can’t see anything that helps me in terms of whether he was considering something.

“It’s a real mystery in terms of what was going on.

“It just doesn’t add up. His intentions here are entirely unclear.”

The coroner decided that although the evidence showed that Mr Hussain had hanged himself, it was impossible to say his intention was to kill himself.

Mr Butler said: “I just don’t see any evidence of intent.

“If it’s accidental or something experimental going on, I don’t know. That’s just speculation.”

Addressing members of Mr Hussain’s family who attended the hearing, he added: “We don’t know what happened and ultimately that means the family could never have know what was going to happen.

“You don’t need to search back through your interactions with him and look for the signs, because I don’t think they are there.”
