statement Mr Noble’s son
In a statement, Noble’s son Gary said he was separated from his father. He said that his father, a former worker, had not worked for many years.
Gary said: ‘I haven’t seen him in 29 years. My father sadly pushed people away because of his drinking and his mental health issues as well.
“I cannot offer much information about my father as we have not had contact for the last 29 years.
‘My mother and father separated more than 30 years ago and when they separated for the first time I tried to maintain a relationship with him, but all he did was walk away and that meant not having relations.
‘From what I’ve learned since my father’s death is that he was a recluse. He really he never saw anyone and he had no friends.
“The neighbors tried to help him and he even scared the neighbors away.”
Gary said his father had also previously told social services “where to go.”
Gary said: ‘My father didn’t see anyone except the Sainsbury’s delivery driver.
“My father drank a lot and smoked a lot and he had a very poor diet from what I could see when I went to clean his house.
‘The walls were stained yellow and there were hundreds of empty cigarette packs.
He would describe it as living in squalor and being a hoarder. My father had no contact with anyone I know and I am not aware of anyone offering information about his life. ”
A report from Mr. Noble’s GP stated: “Mr. Noble has a long history of mental health problems dating back to the 1970s.
“However, he does not appear to have been taking any medications relevant to his mental health for about 20 years.”
The investigation heard that the front door of his home on Golcar Brow Road, Meltham, was blocked by a large post that formed a makeshift barricade.
A police officer found Mr. Noble’s body next to a sofa, with the property littered with containers of urine, discarded food, cigarettes, beer bottles, and videotapes.
A paramedic who treated him estimated that inmate John Arthur Noble, 75, may have been dead for more than 12 months when he was found due to the ‘mummified’ state of his body.
The officer said: ‘John was in a state that I can only describe as mummification.
“I did a search of the property to find many rooms full of food, beer, and videotapes.
“I passed by the house where there were several containers with urine. All of these were down around the house.
At the front gate, he had placed a long wooden post inside the property to block the gate.
“There were stacks of mail dated 2020. The food on the property was dated 2019 and 2020, which told me it had been there for some time.”
Detectives were called in and then any suspicious circumstances ruled out.
Neighbors told police that they only saw Mr. Noble when he picked up the grocery deliveries from his front door.
A neighbor stated that she had expressed her concern for Mr. Noble several years ago, but nothing was done as she was deemed capable, she said in the investigation.
Noble’s brother Roy, who attended the home after the body was found, told police that he had seen his brother a year ago and that he would not open the door to anyone.
Roy said he had to talk to his brother through the mailbox. He said his brother had problems with local youth who often damaged windows that had later been bricked up.
Roy said his brother had separated from his partner 30 years ago and then became a recluse and became more isolated.
