'Positive and focused' Cambridge University student found dead from head injury
A 'positive and focused' Cambridge University student struggling with chronic pain was found dead.
Alexander Horner was 23 when his body was found in Eastbourne after he took his own life.
He died from a head injury on May 9, 2022.
Professor Sachiko Kusukawa, from Trinity College where Alexander studied, said students and staff were "devastated" after learning about his death.

She said: “Alexander was a valued member of our community.
"He had recently presented the most positive and focused he had ever been. He had concrete plans for the future which he was excited about.”
Alexander's is among a series of deaths of Cambridge University students in the last year.
Following an inquest held last week, coroners have now confirmed five students took their own lives last year with a further suspected suicide in September.
Four young students took their lives in a four week period in May and June 2022.
