Sophie Gradon’s parents ‘insist she did not die by suicide’ as the inquest is delayed.
The 32-year-old reality star Sophie Gradon died last June, in her parents’ house in Northumberland.
An inquest into the Love Island star’s death which was due to begin this week is halted after her family received a piece of 'new information’.
Gradon family is apparently claiming there isn't concrete evidence to support Sophie's suicide.

Talking to The Mail the reality star’s parents Colin and Deborah said: ‘There is nothing to support the suggestion that Sophie committed suicide".
The parents further continued:
‘We are still working through things to find out exactly what happened that night but it would be wrong to talk about that now as we do not want to prejudice the inquest when it does go ahead.’
Gradons are disputing reports claiming their daughter took her own life after suffering from depression and financial worries.

The delay of the inquest at Northumberland Coroner’s Court, which was set to begin this Thursday, was requested by Sophie’s family to give them ‘further time to consider a report which was only recently received’.
Today Northumberland Police visited Colin and Deborah’s home reporting the reasons for her death remains unchanged.
"It remains a non-suspicious death and that hasn’t changed since we first confirmed it. We have kept the family updated with any inquiries we carried out as we would with any sudden death."

Deborah Gradon previously claimed Sophie’s iPhone could not be unlocked for data extraction, through a tweet in February: ‘As the heartbroken Mother of #SophieGradon, we are still waiting for an inquest date 8 months after her unexplained death. Why? Because the Police cannot open her iPhone for data extraction.'
