Man who took own life 'nicest person you could meet', inquest hears

The grieving partner of a man who was found hanged in his Windsor home has told an inquest she could not say one bad word about him.

An inquest into the death of Vojin Mandic, 51, took place at Reading Coroners Court yesterday (Wednesday).

He was found hanged at his home in Kings Road by paramedics on June 21.

Antonela Andelic, Mr Mandic’s partner of 33 years, said she had been in hospital having treatment for kidney problems and became concerned when he didn’t come to visit her on the day of his death.

She snuck out of hospital and was greeted with paramedics when she arrived home.

She told the inquest: “There’s not one bad thing I could say about him. He was genuinely the nicest person you could wish to meet.

“I know that he was under a lot of stress but it wasn’t something that was unsolvable.”

The inquest heard that Mr Mandic had suffered from chronic back pain and was due to start a course of injections in the week of his death.

He had no history of mental health problems.

Coroner Peter Bedford said: “From time to time I come across these awful cases where it makes no sense to anybody.”

He ruled that Mr Mandic took his own life.
