  • Sean Thweny from Wrexham had a history of drug and alcohol misuse
  • The 51-year-old was director at Moneysupermarket from 2000-2009

A former MoneySuperMarket director died in Spain from cocaine-induced cardiac arrest, a coroner has ruled. 

Sean Thweny from Wrexham, who the inquest heard had a history of drug and alcohol misuse may have been lying dead in his Spanish flat in Marbella for three days before his body was found.

At an inquest at Ruthin, North Wales, the family of Mr Thweny said they had concerns about the thoroughness of the investigation by the Spanish police.

The 51-year-old was director of business development for Flintshire-based MoneySuperMarket from 2000 to 2009, when he received one million shares in the company. He then moved to live in Marbella.

When police were called to his apartment on February 28, 2019, they found him kneeling against a sofa and cocaine on a plate alongside him. There was also drug paraphernalia.

A post-mortem examination carried out in Spain found his body contained cocaine and benzodiazepines and various other substances used to ‘cut’ the drug.

Home Office pathologist Dr Brian Rodgers, who carried out a further examination after his body had been repatriated to this country, gave the cause of death as cardio-respiratory failure due to cocaine abuse. There was no evidence of violence or of third-party involvement.

At the inquest John Gittins, senior coroner for North Wales East and Central, read extracts from the police investigation including interviews with friends of Mr Thweny, who said they last saw him on February 25.

The inquest heard that Mr Thweny had earlier taken a taxi to Gibraltar to get money from his Brazilian-born wife Nadia, from whom he was separated.

One of those witnesses was a Sandra Santos, who said she used to clean his apartment and who took him 800 Euros which he had asked her to get from a cash machine.

She said she refused to go back there later that day because he was drunk, ‘as usual’. She denied taking any of his property even though his wallet and phone were missing, and said she would have called for help if she thought he needed it.

The coroner said that no criminal charges were brought but he accepted that Mr Thweny’s family had concerns that he had received threats.

‘The authorities in Spain have examined and questioned witnesses on multiple occasions and clearly reached the conclusion that there is no case to answer’ he said.

Recording a conclusion of a drug-related death, Mr Gittins said: ‘It’s clear he was leading a complicated existence.’

He said he understood why his family speculated about the circumstances, but added: ‘Ultimately there has to be a line drawn at some point because clearly we are not going to get any more.’
