Designer L'Wren Scott hanged herelf
(03-20 11:21)

L'Wren Scott, fashion designer and girlfriend of British rocker Mick Jagger, committed suicide by hanging, New York coroners confirmed on Wednesday.
Scott, 49, a former model turned fashion designer, was found dead in her luxury apartment in Manhattan on Monday.
Following an autopsy carried out on Tuesday, the New York coroner's office confirmed what had been widely reported since news of Scott's death broke.
“Decedent: L'Wren Scott. Cause of death: Hanging. Manner of death: Suicide,'' a coroner's office spokeswoman confirmed to AFP by email.
Jagger, 70, is reported to have traveled to New York following Scott's death, which forced the indefinite postponement of the Rolling Stones' tour of Australia and New Zealand.
It has emerged that Scott's fashion design business was millions of dollars in debt at the time of her death.—AFP
