There is not believed to be any third party involvement and a report will now be prepared for the coroner."
Sophie's death - an assumed suicide - had garnered massive tributes from all over, before she was laid to rest in her native town of Newcastle, on Friday. Her friend, family, and boyfriend Aaron had gathered to say goodbye to the 'beautiful Sophie.' And, now Aaron's death has come as a shock to both his and Sophie's family; owing to the time between the two deaths. Several people took to social media to pay their condolences and tribute to him after the news of his death spread online.

As for Sophie's death, the inquest was opened on June 27 during a rather short hearing at North Tyneside Coroners Court. The case was adjourned at the same hearing itself that lasted less than a minute. Sophie had appeared on ITV's 'Love Island' in 2016 and had worked as a model since then. She was believed to have been struggling with mental health problems prior to her death.
During the hearing Trever Carroll, Assistant Coroner for South Northumberland said: "Following initial inquiries, it is appropriate to open an inquest into her death. (I will) adjourn at this stage for further inquiries to determine the cause of death."
Neither any of Sophie's friends, nor her family was present at the hearing.
