AN Ipswich woman whose body was found floating off the Suffolk coast died of immersion, it is suspected.
The inquest of Linda Laframboise, 59, of Eagle Street was open and adjourned by Essex Coroner's Office on Tuesday and a date for the full inquest has yet to be set.
Mrs Laframboise's body was recovered from the sea at Felixstowe on Tuesday, November 10 after men aboard a pilot ship anchored off the coast at Walton-on-the-Naze, Essex spotted her.
Mrs Laframboise's daughter Clare Cornish, 40, was called by police to identify her mother after officers discovered the grandmother's empty handbag on Felixstowe beach.
