"Mr Hoare, 47, had become increasingly reclusive and paranoid in recent weeks."Reading on, we learn:
"Police could not rule out suicide but friends suggested natural causes was also a possibility as he had been suffering from ill health."However:
"His solicitor David Sonn said: ‘I last spoke to him a week ago and he seemed fine."Also:
"A friend who saw him more recently described him as ‘sober’ and wanting to rebuild his career."Hmm.
