Sleep disorder experts will piece together the puzzle

Warrington - It's been opened and adjourned in a blaze of publicity as behind-the-scenes forensics battle to piece together the Welsh footie manager's last known state of mind.

"It could be a complication of parasomnia what did it," sleep disorders specialist Dr Harry Placebo tweeted on his mobile shortly after 3pm.

The pathological condition describes disruptive sleep-related events 'involving inappropriate actions during sleep'.

Symptoms may include 'abnormal and/or unnatural movements, behaviors, emotions, perceptions, and dreams' while the brain remains in a deep, hypnagogic trance.

Associated somnambulism could also be a factor as could rampant dyssomnia and/or atypical sleeping sickness - something that's 'triggered by a parasitic disease transmitted by the Tsetse fly.'

"Frankly we just don't know at this early stage," Dr Placebo added, helpfully.

"However I am confident we can completely rule out Kleine-Levin Syndrome - or Sleeping Beauty Syndrome as it's more commonly known - from the equation."

The inquest is likely to resume early next year when wide ranging testimony is likely to be heard.
