On the morning of 1 March, Englebrecht called Digby's neighbour and tenant of a room in the main home that Digby owned, who entered the two-bedroom house that Digby had built and lived in. She found Digby dead on his bed at 7:45 am on 1 March 2010. An ambulance was called; paramedics declared him dead at the scene. Digby's body was identified by his mother, Paula Dubois.

An inquest opened on 4 March 2010 at Walthamstow Coroner's Court; both his parents attended. The inquest was adjourned later the same day. It reopened in November 2010, where the police stated that Digby was found on his bed, wearing only his boxer shorts, as well as a plastic bag bin liner over his head. The body was found next to a canister of ethyl chloride, but no trace of it or other stimulants or alcohol were found in his blood stream.
