Innocent man commits suicide after paedophile accusation
"GS, 56, "became a hermit" after the allegations of sexual abuse of a young girl more than 20 years ago
Scene of suicide: Humber Bridge.
A man falsely accused of historical child abuse leapt to his death from a bridge, an inquest heard.
GS, 56, was accused last November of sexually abusing a young girl more than 20 years ago.
Police exonerated him but the dad-of-one became depressed.
His brother Michael told the hearing in Hull: “He became a hermit.”
Mr S, who lived in Hull city centre, left a suicide note before jumping from the Humber Bridge in June.
