LONDON – A British coroner cited “asphyxia” and “hanging” as the official cause of death of fashion designer Lee Alexander McQueen, who was found dead at his London apartment on Feb. 11.

Police found McQueen “hanging in his wardrobe” and are treating his death as non-suspicious, according to a statement issued at Westminster Coroner’s Court here following a post-mortem.

“Police are examining a note found at the scene,” the statement added, without providing further detail.

Full results of an inquest into the designer’s death will be heard April 28.
