Inquest opened into death of Trowse teenager Maisie Baxter
An inquest has been opened into the death of teenager Maisie Baxter.
Today's opening at the coroner's court in Eastgate House, Norwich, heard that a post mortem examination gave the cause of death as due to hanging.
Deputy Norfolk coroner Jacqueline Lake said the circumstances surrounding the death of Maisie Baxter, previously known as Maisie Gooch, was that she was at home with her family in Trowse on Saturday, February 18, when she went to her bedroom.
Subsequently, a family member went to check on her but got no response and was unable to open the bedroom door.
Further efforts were made and entry was gained to the bedroom, where Maisie was found slumped on the floor.
