Max Mosley cause of death:- Max Mosley had shot himself in the head and died from the injury after he was diagnosed of a terminal cancer. An official inquest into his death revealed.
The 81-year-old former President of Formula 1, shot and killed himself in May last year. That’s almost a year ago.
The Westminster coroner’s court on Tuesday, March 29, 2022, heard that Max Mosley decided to end his own life after learning that he had a “very limited life expectancy”, following his cancer diagnosis.
Evidence presented to the inquest revealed that Mosley told his personal assistant that he had decided to kill himself the night before his death.
Recording a conclusion of suicide, senior coroner, Dr. Fiona Wilcox, said; “I am also entirely satisfied Mr. Mosley would not have undertaken this action but for the distressing and debilitating terminal lymphoma,”
Max Mosley was said to have developed diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, a dangerous form of blood cancer, way back in 2019. He tried all treatment methods but was unsuccessful.
Meanwhile, Dr. Wilcox recorded the cause of death as a gunshot wound, but could not rule out cancer, as she said the disease was a key contributing factor.
