House death inquest opens and adjourns
7:00am Tuesday 24th December 2013 in News
An inquest has been opened on a woman found dead in her Littlemore house with her daughter.
Pauline Jessett, 78, was found dead by police in her Cowley Road home last month after environmental health officers raised concern about the building.
An inquest into her death was opened and adjourned at Oxfordshire Coroner’s Court on December 4, although officials did not reveal this at the time.
Her daughter Caroline Jessett – who was in her 50s – was also found dead, but an inquest had yesterday not yet been opened.
