Tributes have been paid to a much-loved school administrator who was found dead at home.
Karon Boyce, 57, was found at an address on Primrose Close, in Thetford, on April 7 this year, after a relative became concerned for her welfare.
An inquest opened into her death at Norfolk Coroner's Court yesterday, where the medical cause of death was given as being from blood loss.
Ms Boyce had worked as an administrator at Raleigh Infant School in Thetford for 18 years.
Daphne Rothwell, the school's headteacher, said Ms Boyce would be 'greatly missed'.

'I know that I speak for everyone at Raleigh when I say there is a huge hole in the heart of the school now that is going to be very difficult to fill,' she said.
'Karon was a key member of the staff. She managed the school office as well as being the go-to person when colleagues needed to know anything. And if she didn't know the answer, you could count on her to find out.'
