Mystery surrounds the death of a “lovely” father-of-two whose body was found at his home after police received a call for concern.

Jason Willcocks, 35, of Warrenside, Braintree, had been dead for several days before being discovered on July 17.

It was heard at Mr Willcocks’s inquest opening that there were no suspicious circumstances surrounding the death but it remains unclear how he died.

Friends of Mr Willcocks described him as being “willing to do anything for anyone”.
