Jamal Edwards’ cause of death confirmed at inquest

Jamal Edwards’ cause of death was confirmed at his inquest today (2 August).

The music producer died in February when his mother – Loose Women panelist Brenda Edwards – revealed Jamal had a heart attack as a result of taking recreational drugs.

Today, a coroner confirmed Brenda’s earlier comments, saying he died of cardiac arrest after an overnight session of alcohol and cocaine.

Cause of death of Jamal Edwards confirmed

Mr Collett summed up before the West London Coroner’s Court: “He had worked as a DJ at a venue in Islington. He arrived home around 4:30 am and was rejoined by his close friend.

“They had a few drinks and agreed to smoke cannabis. Although he appeared normal at first, his demeanor changed and he showed signs of anxiety, paranoia, and irritability.

“Despite his friend’s efforts to calm him down, he started throwing things across the room before collapsing to the floor.

“The police found drug paraphernalia, the toxicological tests recently found evidence of drug use.

“The allegation is that Jamal took cocaine in sufficient quantity to cause an adverse reaction caused by cocaine intoxication.

“This then caused cardiac arrhythmias that led to his death.”

“He was under a lot of pressure”

Jamal’s friend Nick Hopper lived in an annex of Jamal’s house and described his final moments.

In a statement read by the coroner to the inquest, he said: “When he came in he appeared to be his normal self and it seemed like he had just been out.

“We started chatting, smoking weed and drinking. He told me he was under a lot of pressure. There were periods of talking followed by silence.

“Over time Jamal became quite paranoid and said I had things on my hands when I didn’t. Whenever I moved, he would panic. I told him to calm down, but he kept getting angry.”

Hopper said Jamal eventually collapsed unconscious next to the bathroom door.

Despite the best efforts of Hopper and later his uncle Rodney Artman, as well as paramedics, Jamal did not wake up and was pronounced dead at 10:36 a.m. on Sunday, February 20.

Toxicology tests found cocaine and alcohol in his system, but no cannabis.
