An inquest into the death of a Derbyshire woman has been told that a number of substances are believed to have been in her system, leading to her being found dead in her own home. The court heard that it was her uncle who formally identified her.
Emma Rose Major, 43 and from Bolsover, was discovered at her home on Station Road, in Bolsover, on Wednesday, May 25, 2022.
Assistant Coroner, Miss Susan Evans told the short hearing that Ms Major, whose maiden name was Smith, was born in Chesterfield back on May 14, 1979. She was divorced and her occupation was listed as a homemaker.
A postmortem examination of Ms Major had taken place following her death with a preliminary cause of death given as morphine, opioids and diazepam misuse.
Adjourning the hearing, Miss Evans said she was unable to conclude the inquest as the court was awaiting some reports into Ms Major’s death.
