The medical cause of the death was hanging.

The Record of Inquest stated: “The deceased died on July 1, 2022, at Chamomile Way, Spalding, when the cumulative pressures of her employment became too great for her and despite extensive medical treatment she was unable to cope and took her own life.”

Kasey had been employed by Lincolnshire County Council.

Glen Garrod, executive director for adult care and community wellbeing, said: “This was a tragic event, and our thoughts continue to be with Kasey’s family and friends at this difficult time.

“We don’t comment on matters relating to individual members of staff, but we can confirm that we are in contact with Kasey’s family.”
