Charles Bronson tells inquest he’d have ‘hunted scumbag’ who gave drugs to ex

Britain's most violent prisoner Charles Bronson had to be warned about his inappropriate behaviour during the inquest today into the death of his ex wife.

At the inquest today the coroner found the death of Paula Williamson, an actress who appeared in Coronation Street, was a result of taking drugs.

Bronson was warned after her made comments criticising Peter Jones, who was Paula's partner at the time of her death.

The convicted killer said he would have hunted down the 'scumbag' who gave his ex-wife drugs that killed her, the Stoke Sentinel reports.

Coroner Emma Serrano said she would not tolerate 'veiled threats' or name calling during the hearing.

Bronson,  who was permitted to ask questions as Paula's legal next-of-kin,  also criticised the police during the hearing.

He said: "I would like to know why the police haven't investigated who the scumbag is who gave her the drugs in the first place.

"If I was out there I would have their name and address in 24 hours – and I still will find out when I get out there."

He also hit out at a detective who was giving evidence.

Bronson, who is serving a life term, said: "I don't think the police have been too clever on this one."

Bronson and Paula, who died aged 38, became pen pals in 2013 and got married in 2017.

But the pair then split up and their marriage was set to be annulled before her death.

Paula was found dead by Mr Jones at her home in Sneyd Green on July 29, 2019.

Mr Jones told how he found Paula unresponsive at 6.40am after she went up to bed at around 1am.

He told the inquest he had slept on the sofa.

After Paula was discovered paramedics were called and confirmed Paula had passed away. 

DC Phil Pegg, from Staffordshire Police, said an investigation into Paula’s death found there were no suspicious circumstances.
