Kate O'mara - Kate O'mara's Son's Death Ruled A Suicide

Officials in the U.K. have concluded Kate O'mara's son took his own life by hanging himself in a garage at the Dynasty star's home and had been dead for almost three weeks before his body was found.

The actress' son, 48-year-old DICkon Young, was discovered dead by a neighbour in the English village of Long Marston in Warwickshire on New Year's Eve (31Dec12).

Police concluded his death was not suspicious and now a coroner has recorded a verdict of suicide.

An investigation into the tragedy suggested Young died shortly after sending a final text message to his mother on 8 December (12), nearly three weeks before his body was discovered.

The former set designer, whose father is actor Jeremy Young, is said to have suffered mental health problems since his involvement in a car accident in 2010.

His mother was in hospital being treated for a bout of pneumonia at the time of her son's death and the 73 year old was reportedly too ill to attend the inquest at Warwickshire Justice Centre in Leamington Spa, England.
