Inquest hears 18 year old woman died from carbon monoxide poisoning

An inquest has heard how an 18 year-old woman was found dead near a motocross track in the north of the Island earlier this month.

Tanya Dentith, of Snugborough Avenue in Union Mills, died through asphyxia after breathing in car exhaust gases.

Police found Ms Dentith on May 18 in a car adjacent to the motocross track near Ballagarragyn farm land in Jurby.

The court heard Consultant Pathologist Dr Christopher Clague's post-mortem report where he said there was a fatal level of carbon monoxide in Ms Dentith's blood.

Coroner of Inquests John Needham sent his condolences to Ms Dentith's family and adjourned proceedings.
