Woman took her own life

An inquest has heard how a young woman hanged herself.

The body of Jayne Elizabeth O'Neill, aged 29, was found at her home in Westmoreland Court, Douglas in February.

The inquest heard Miss O'Neill's sister and mother went to her flat when she didn't answer her phone, and found her body behind her bedroom door.

Coroner Alastair Montgomerie read a statement from the sister describing how Miss O'Neill hanged herself with the belt of a dressing gown.

Recording a suicide verdict, Mr Montgomerie said his words wouldn't be enough to comfort Miss O'Neill's family and friends, but they should treasure their memories of her.
