Inquest opens on mystery Fakenham death
An inquest was opened in Norwich yesterday on 73-year-old Phyllis Mary Szozrybak who had been dead inside her home at Tunn Street, Fakenham, for many months.
An inquest was opened in Norwich last week on 73-year-old Phyllis Mary Szozrybak who had been dead inside her home at Tunn Street, Fakenham, for many months.
Greater Norfolk coroner William Armstrong said: “I am satisfied of her identity from information received from the police. It appears she was a widow and was found dead on April 17 after local people saw through her lounge window. She appeared to be deceased.”
He said an entry was forced and she was found dead on a sofa bed in the lounge.
He added that interviews with family members led to the conclusion she may have been living somewhat of a reclusive lifestyle for a considerable time.
