A coroner said she was unable to say exactly how a Polish man died, after his body was found in the River Nene in Northampton.
An inquest was held at Northampton Magistrates’ Court yesterday into the death of Andrzej Dziadosz, aged 46, formerly of Camrose Road, Spencer, Northampton.
Mr Dziadosz’s body was found in the River Nene, near Auctioneers Way, Northampton, on March 5, 2013. He had been missing since January 26 that year.
The inquest heard evidence from a probation officer, Marta Mazur, who had received a voicemail message on her mobile phone from Mr Dziadosz on January 26 when he had stated he was going to commit suicide.
Ms Mazur said: “The message said he had had enough, it was too much for him and he was going to commit suicide.
“He thanked me for everything I had done, but said he was not able to carry on any more.
“He sounded upset and devastated and it sounded like he had been drinking.”
The inquest also heard from his daughter, Sylwia Pawliszak, who received a phone call from Mr Dziadosz when he said: “Sorry for everything, goodbye.”
Mr Dziadosz’s partner, Beata Pawliszak, said he had moved to England after she had in 2007.
Ms Pawliszak said she argued with her partner on January 26 and he then pushed her before he walked out of the house.
Ms Pawliszak said: “I thought he would return once he had calmed down. I never thought he had suicidal thoughts. I thought he would return home.”
Mr Dziadosz’s body was found by a kayaker who was travelling down the River Nene on March 5.
Anne Pember, the county coroner who recorded an open verdict, said: “I am unable to say how this gentleman met his death.”
