Coroner: Alexander McQueen Hanged Himself

2/17/2010 9:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The coroner who inspected the body of Alexander McQueen claims the international fashion designer hanged himself in his closet last week -- and cops have labeled the death as "non-suspicious."

According to London officials, McQueen also left a suicide note -- but the contents of the note have not been released. Officials say the note is "being looked at by police."

McQueen's body was discovered in his London apartment last Thursday.

The coroner claims a full post-mortem report will be completed by April.

Such a sad ending for such a talented man. Suicide is always sad because you never know, tomorrow might have been the day you fixed what was ailing you. God Bless you and your family.

What a waste!! Possibly over a lover's quarrel or break up? Who knows! And with all his money, too bad he didn't seek help.

It's the "McQueen curse"!

First Steve McQueen died at an early age.

Then, Owen Wilson (AKA Lightning McQueen) attempts suicide. (Thankfully survives.)

Finally Alexander McQueen.

why would a rich person hang himself? Did they find him naked too? If so maybe he was into what David Carradine was into. But what is strange to me is, why hang yourself in a closet? hmmmmm! Maybe someone hung him and made it look like a suicide. It's strange to me how supposedly these famous rich people are "hanging themselves in closets" I doesn't make any sense to me....

Why in hell does it take till April to finish a post-mortem on a hanging? He asphyxiated. End of story. I can see checking for drugs to see if that's connected to his wanting to commit suicide, but Anna Nicole's didn't take THAT long to complete!

Thousands upon thousands of people died the same day that McQueen did, and most of them didn't WANT to die. So why are we only hearing about McQueen? Oh yeah, he made clothes. Big whoop.

Do they know what kind of psychiatric meds he was taking?Perhaps that was a factor.
People with emotional disorders are using them as band aids instead of really processing the pain and psych meds can be very dangerous.

It is 'hanged', not hung. People are hanged, laundry is hung. The English language is stupid, but that is actually the correct term. I teach English, so eat it.
