The distraught family of a young man who was found hanged insist he would never have deliberately taken his own life.
Relatives of Raymond Moore are convinced foul play surrounds his death.
But police have said there were no suspicious circumstances and the coroner called his death an act of self harm.
The 26-year-old factory worker was found hanged in a bedroom, but because there was no suicide note, or any recent mention from Mr Moore about wanting to die, coroner Andre Rebello said he could not make a suicide verdict.
When asked by the Liverpool Echo , Merseyside Police confirmed there were no suspicious circumstances surrounding Mr Moore’s death.
But Mr Moore’s dad, Raymond Snr, said his son had excitedly spoken to him about the forthcoming Grand National and was also looking forward to going to stay with him in Wales.
He said He promised me he would never hang himself.
We were so close.
I thought he’d be the one carrying me [in a coffin], not me carrying him.
It’s been two-and-a-half months since his death, and I’ve been crying every single day.
Mum Edith added I’d seen him the night before – he was bubbly and had a lot to look forward to.
Mr Moore’s family also pointed to their usually tidy son’s trainers being found in different rooms in the house, not neatly lined up together, as evidence of a third party’s involvement.
The single man, who originally lived in St Helens, was found dead on April 9 at his sister’s house on Waltham Road, Anfield.
A medium amount of alcohol was found in his body, along with evidence of recent crack cocaine use.
The coroner told the court, in Kirkdale, that he could not rule out a cry for help.
He added This was an act of self harm, but there is no evidence of an intention to end his life, which is why I can’t say it was suicide.
Mr Moore Senior, speaking after the verdict, said I was going to take him down to live with me for a couple of months in Wales. He said, ‘I can’t wait’.
