Man, 39, who ‘didn’t know how to go on’ after death of his wife took HIS OWN life with her cancer medication


A heartbroken estate agent who ‘didn’t know how to go on’ after his wife died following a five-year cancer battle took his own life using her cancer medicine, an inquest has heard.

Adam Thompson, 39, was found dead at home in Mulbarton, Norfolk, by his father on October 10.

Details of His Death

His death came four months after that of his wife Lucy, 44, who had battled breast cancer for five years after first being diagnosed with the disease in February 2018, EmmanuelsBlog has learned.

Around the same time of Lucy’s death, he also suffered the loss of a close family member and his pet dog. 

Adam, a father-of-three who had run Reality Estate Agent in Norwich alongside his wife, was discovered after failing to show up for work.

Cause of Death

An inquest heard he died from cocaine and opioid toxicity.

The pair married in July 2019 after Lucy had been given the all clear by doctors. But in June 2020, she was told she had multiple tumours on her liver, caused by secondary breast cancer. Lucy died in June 2023 at home.
