Inquest Begins into the Death of Corinne Bailey Rae's Husband
Police continue to probe the suspected drug overdose of musician Jason Rae
A coroner opened the official inquest into the death of saxophonist Jason Rae, the husband of Grammy-nominated singer Corinne Bailey Rae, on Thursday.
The 31-year-old musician was found dead Saturday afternoon at an apartment in the English city of Leeds.
The examining pathologist came to the preliminary conclusion the Rae had died from a suspected drugs overdose, he told the coroner during Thursday’s hearing, a British wire service reports.
A spokesperson for the West Yorkshire Police told PEOPLE there was no set time-frame for probe.
Results of a post mortem performed on the Scottish-born sax player – a member of the funk band The Haggis Horns – were inconclusive. Police now await results of toxicology tests.
The British-born Bailey Rae, 29, met her husband in a Leeds jazz club, where she worked as a coat-room attendant. They wed in 2001.
