Luke Monrose (27), who was also a spiritualist, intended to induce a "near-death experience". By pushing his body to extremes and catching hypo- thermia he believed he might "unlock the secrets of the afterlife".

His ambition, according to reports in Britain, was to attain psychic powers and enjoy an out-of-body experience by cheating death.

The body of Mr Monrose was found in a quarry in Cornwall where he had conducted his ill-fated experiment.
