Tributes have poured in for a Gravesend man whose body was found in the town centre last week.
Piotr Binkowski, 41, was found behind the Clarendon Hotel on Royal Pier Road on Thursday, June 22, a hearing at Maidstone’s Archbishop’s Palace heard on Wednesday.
Following the discovery of his body, a large police and ambulance presence swamped the town, with cordons set up to investigate the cause of his death.
A postmortem examination gave the cause of his death as hanging.
It is believed the builder, originally from Poland, was a father and an uncle.
A week on since his death, Mr Binkowski’s Facebook page has been turned into a site for friends and relatives to pay their respects.
Dozens of tributes have been left on the page in English and Polish, describing the 41-year-old as “a lovely gentleman”.
