Andrew Evans, found dead standing up in kitchen, still baffles medical examiner

A coroner has described a man’s death as ‘bizarre’ after he was found dead standing up in his kitchen. The official report was submitted in court late last week and it still receiving comments from experts around the world.

Andrew Evans, age 35, was discovered by a friend, who visited him at his home in earlier this year on May 10. The man had suffered injuries to his head earlier that day and it is believe he may have blacked out while reaching into his cupboard with his body wedging against the kitchen fittings.

Details are somewhat unclear, but the man had enough alcohol in his system to be four times the legal limit.

Coroner Dr David Skipp said at the inquest last week that the death was “strange”, but that Mr Evans died from asphyxiation of the lungs.

“It is unusual for a man whose alcohol levels were high to be found stood against a work surface. He obviously did not try to get out of the flat after banging his head and the evidence suggests he was not bothered by what was going on. It is bizarre.”

He recorded a verdict of accidental death.

One United Kingdom doctor commented that the death is similar to being crucified, stuck in the upright position, as the blood pools in the lower extremities.
