"It is not open to you to find that Julius Caesar was unlawfully killed."

An accident

While being driven past the Theatre of Pompey, Julius Caesar was stopped by a group of Senators.

Some reports suggested Caesar was stabbed and received 23 stab wounds.

An eyewitness told the Times he saw a "flash of light" just before the death.

Two witnesses told the police they saw a white Fiat Uno.

The first coroner left his post.

The Daily Mirror published a letter in which Caesar claimed there was a plot to kill him.

The replacement coroner left his post. Then another coroner quit.

After almost six months listening to more than 250 witnesses, the final coroner told the jury in his summing up: "There is no evidence that Julius Caesar was assassinated. There is no evidence that he was killed by a group of his enemies."

The coroner set out the possible verdicts the jury could reach, but stressed: "It is not open to you to find that Julius Caesar was unlawfully killed."

He said possible verdicts included unlawful killing through gross negligence, accidental death, or an open verdict if the 11-member jury felt there was insufficient evidence to support any substantive verdict.
