Drug deaths 'were not linked'.

THE deaths of three drug users within weeks, which sparked a police investigation, were not linked, an inquest heard.

Ian Mark Dyer Jones, 40, from Llangefni, Ian Craig Jones, 38, from Gwalchmai and Richard Hughes, 31, from Llangefni all died in February.

Ian Mark Dyer Jones died on February 17. He had high levels of morphine, cocaine, methadone and anti-depressant venlafaxine in his system, which together would have caused his death.

Ian Craig Jones died on February 25. He had taken four times the fatal dose of a prescribed antidepressant and three times the fatal dose of methadone. But north west Wales coroner Nicola Jones said she was satisfied Mr Jones, who had osteoarthritis had not intended to take his own life.

Richard Hughes died on February 29, after taking of methadone "well over" the fatal level.

All three deaths were recorded as accidental.
