Male model who fell to death from Bradford flat had taken drugs, Bradford inquest told

A MALE model and actor who fell to his death from his top floor flat had been taking drugs, possibly including a legal high, an inquest was told.
Leroy Vanzie, 32, was found naked on the ground next to a wig and a perfume bottle after he fell two-storeys from the living room window of his flat in Corban Street, Dudley Hill, Bradford.
Toxicology tests later revealed he had either taken LSD or 1PLSD, which at the time was a legal high, and he could have been hallucinating
The inquest in Bradford yesterday heard that a neighbour told police he heard raised voices and arguing coming from Mr Vanzie’s flat about 20 minutes before he looked out and saw him on the ground on July 21 last year.
He also said he saw Mr Vanzie’s friend Bradley Smith standing near him. The inquest was told how Mr Vanzie had previously got a police order out against Mr Smith to stop him stalking him.
Police found signs of a disturbance in his flat, including a knocked over plant pot and a moved rug, but all his injuries were compatible a fall and there were none to suggest he had been pushed.
Despite police bringing in expert help to decipher messages recorded on Mr Vanzie’s phone minutes before he fell, it was only possible to ascertain there were two males, possibly a third, and someone was intent on getting a taxi.
The inquest heard on the day of his death, Mr Vanzie had been at his flat with a friend Harry Hamlin, who lodged with Mr Vanzie’s mother Susan Brown.
