Tributes flood in as Corinne Bailey Rae's husband found dead of suspected drugs overdose
The husband of singer Corinne Bailey Rae has been found dead of a suspected drugs overdose.
The body of saxophonist Jason Rae was discovered in a flat in the Hyde Park area of Leeds on Saturday and while a post-mortem on the day proved inconclusive, police are now awaiting toxicology tests to confirm the cause of death.
A 32-year-old was arrested on suspicion of supplying Rae with drugs, but has since been released on bail.
Jason, 31, who met his wife when she working as a cloakroom attendant at a jazz club, played the saxophone in a group called the Haggis Horns. Fans of the eight-piece band have been leaving tributes to Rae on YouTube and Facebook since news of his death broke in the early hours of this morning.
