PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! A proud and intellectual man who could not accept that he would one day be dependent on others after being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease jumped to his death from a multi-story car park. Yves Matthys died instantly from multiple injuries to the head, spine, chest and leg at the site off St Clement’s Street in Truro. An inquest into the 66-year-old’s death heard that the Belgian national, who had retired to Cornwall in 2018 with his wife Katya, died instantly at the scene after the sound of him landing alerting two members of the public that something untoward had taken place in the area at the back of Pydar Street. On the day of his death on November 6 last year, the Matthyses had travelled from their home in Falmouth to Truro for a spot of shopping as they had done before on numerous occasions. The inquest also heard that the father-of-three had been diagnosed with depression in 2018 but it was the news that his intellectual faculties would degrade over time after being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in August 2020 which led him to contemplate taking his own life - something he had already alluded to in the past while seeking psychological support and help.

In statement read out at the inquest Mrs Matthys said his decision to take his own life must have been done on impulse as he had been doing better psychologically of late. She said: “Yves was a proud and very intellectual man and the thought of becoming increasingly dependent on others was a great concern to him.” However, on that tragic day, it was while Mrs Matthys was shopping for clothes in New Look that her husband slipped her attention and ascended to the top of the nearby car park at the back of the shop.

Recording a suicide conclusion, assistant coroner for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, Gary Davies, said: “Yves demonstrated suicidal ideations and contemplated jumping off a cliff in the past. On November 6 last year he ended his own life by jumping from the building because his mental health condition, that is depression, and a family dispute which had alienated him from his children and being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, and the knowledge that he would become dependent on others in later life, had certainly played on his mind. “Yves acted on impulse, on the spur of the moment which led him to take his own life. There was no suicide note but he had intended to do so, which will be the conclusion I record.” READ NEXT: Five Cornish towns make list of 'ghost towns' taken over by second homes Three Newquay beaches named among the best in the UK Fern Britton opens up about her single life in Cornwall Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan's life in Cornwall Appeal for witnesses after man seriously injured in crash near Truro
