An wealthy British individual passed away after engaging in excessive cocaine use following their relocation to Marbella, as revealed during an inquest.

Sean Thwemy decided to retire early and enjoy the sunny days after a successful career in business development at a well-known comparison site.

British Businessman Found Dead

He relocated from Britain to the affluent destination of Marbella after being granted a million shares in the company in 2009.

However, the inquest revealed that he may have remained undiscovered for three days after passing away alone in his Spanish residence.

A recent inquest held in Ruthin, North Wales, revealed that the young entrepreneur, who was born in Wrexham and was 21 years old at the time, had consumed cocaine and ketamine prior to his untimely death. His former wife discovered his lifeless body in his Marbella apartment on 25 February 2019.

During the inquest, it was revealed that Thweny had a documented record of substance abuse involving drugs and alcohol.

According to John Gittins, the senior coroner for north Wales east and central, toxicology tests revealed the presence of cocaine and benzodiazepines in his urine.

Upon further examination of the evidence, Dr. Brian Rogers from the Home Office determined that the individual's cause of death was cardiorespiratory arrest resulting from cocaine abuse.

Gittins was aware of rumors circulating about threats and impending danger, but he remained focused on analyzing the evidence to form his conclusion, rather than engaging in speculation.

Sandra Santos, a cleaner, stated that she was requested to withdraw money using his bank card due to his intoxicated state.

According to her, she withdrew 800 Euros and he generously gave her half of that amount. According to her statement to the police, she claimed that he disregarded her advice to make positive changes in his life.

However, she expressed regret that she was unaware of the danger he was facing, as she would have taken action to help him.

Thweny's former wife, Nadia Cortez Paz Thweny, had been separated from him since June 2018, but they maintained regular contact through phone conversations. A body was discovered on 25 February 2019 and emergency services were immediately contacted.

During the inquest, it was revealed that Thwemy had taken a taxi to Gibraltar to visit Nadia, who was originally from Brazil.

Thwemy's Family Expresses Doubt on Businessman's Death

The coroner acknowledged that while no criminal charges were filed, he recognized the concerns expressed by Thwemy's family regarding potential threats.

Thweny served as the director of business development for the Ewloe-based company from 2000 until 2009, Daily Post reported.

During this time, he was among three managers who were each granted one million shares by Simon Nixon, the company founder. Since then, he has made Spain his home.

Gittins was said to have led a complex life, and his unfortunate passing was attributed to drug-related circumstances.

According to him, the Spanish authorities have thoroughly investigated and interviewed witnesses multiple times, leading them to firmly conclude that there is no basis for a case. After recording a conclusion of a drug-related death, Gittins remarked, "It's evident that he was living a complex life."
