A Suffolk woman who was found at the bottom of a multi-storey car park in Bury St Edmunds possibly had mental health issues, a coroner has said.
Today the inquest opened into the death of Patricia Hopkins, 64, of Union Hill, Semer, near Hadleigh, who was discovered at the base of the car park in Parkway on November 28 last year.
Her death was confirmed at 9.20am that day, Coroner Dr Peter Dean said.
A post-mortem examination conducted by Dr Karl Love revealed she died from multiple injuries due to a fall.
Possible mental health issues were also noted.
The inquest has been opened and adjourned.
