Inquest into the death of TAYLOR, Mervyn Maxwell
Mervyn Maxwell Taylor was born on 18 June 1970 and died on 17 January 2019 at his\r\nhome address. He was 48 years of age.\r\n\r\nA post mortem examination of Mr Taylor’s remains was performed by forensic\r\npathologist, Dr Stephen Wills, at Forensic Science South Australia on 21 January 2019.\r\nDr Wills’ post mortem report was tendered to the inquest.\r\n\r\nDr Wills reports that the\r\ncause of Mr Taylor’s death was atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, and I so find.\r\n\r\n\r\nExamination of Mr Taylor’s coronary arteries revealed stenosis of 75-80%. Individuals\r\nwith significant narrowing of the major epicardial coronary arteries are at increased risk\r\nof cardiac dysfunction, arrhythmia and sudden, unexpected death. Toxicological\r\nanalysis revealed that Mr Taylor’s blood sample contained only a non-toxic\r\nconcentration of paracetamol.
