A former RE teacher at a top Suffolk private school took his own life, an inquest into his death has ruled.
Francis Carolan was found dead at his apartment in Colonnade Gardens, Eastbourne, Sussex, on Tuesday, March 29.
The 58-year-old, who previously worked at St Joseph’s College, in Ipswich, as a teacher and as an assistant housemaster had denied sexually assaulting a teenage boy in the early 1990s.
He was found dead shortly before his trial was due to start at Ipswich Crown Court.
He was on court bail at the time of his death after pleading not guilty to four offences of indecent assault on a boy aged between 14 and 15.
