The businessman, who rose to fame as the owner of the Sugar Hit Nightclub in the ITV series, died on January 21 at the age of 57 at his home in the village of Essex, Balfons.
Mr. Norcross first appeared in Toi in 2011 during the show’s second series. His son Kirk, 33, was part of the original cast.
Essex Police Inspector Neil Armstrong told an investigation in Chelmford that officers were called by the ambulance service around 4pm on January 21 for Mr Norcross’s “vast property”.
The hearing revealed that he was found dead by his son, Kirk Norcross, who smashed a window with a hammer so he could not access the property when he could not contact him.
Mr Armstrong said Mr Norcross was involved in developments in three properties that were out of schedule.
Mr Armstrong said he had borrowed 66 66 million, which was secured by a bridging loan against his original residence, and that “at least another ختم 1 million was needed to complete the development.” Was, “said Mr Armstrong.
He said he was facing “some major financial difficulties” and that Mr Norcross had suffered a lifetime of work and possibly loss of a family home due to a bridging loan, and that his weight was apparent. It was too much. “
Mr Armstrong said there was no third party involved in Mr Norcross’s death.
In a statement read by Kroner, Kirk Norcross said: “During the first lockdown in March 2020, I really saw my father’s change.”
He said he went to bed early in the morning, and “it was as if a black cloud had fallen over his head.”
“The money is not worth the aggression, I’m better than myself,” Kirk said.
“I never took him seriously – I thought he was just kidding.”
McCormick’s partner, Samantha Keehi, said in a statement read out by Corner that Mr. Norcross sold a Range Rover, an Austin Martin and a van and quickly cashed in on his private pension.
“Mike has always supported his family as far as I know and the thought of not helping his family scared him,” he said.

Essex’s senior coroner, Lincoln Brooks, told the hearing Thursday: “He was under a lot of pressure and I accept the evidence from his family that he was a very proud man who provided himself with a Seen as contributor.
“However, the projects he was working on were taking longer than the bank and were not necessarily as profitable as he had hoped.
“He expected to be in a position to retire.

Mr. Norcross was introduced to Toi as the owner of Sugar Hit Nightclub, a scene of many of the program’s most popular arguments among the cast members.
He left the show in 2013, saying that the venue’s prominent place in the show had damaged his brand.
Mr. Norcross’s family members witnessed the inquiry through Microsoft teams, and did not appear in court in person.
