A BISHOP'S Waltham woman died of a drugs overdose, an inquest in Winchester heard.

Tereza Jane Rutter, 50, of Paradise Lane, was found at home on March 23.

Concerns had been raised because letters and parcels had not been collected and Ms Rutter had not been seen for several days. The police entered the property and found her dead.

Ms Rutter was identified by her fingerprints in police records.

Consultant pathologist Adnan Al-Badri conducted a post mortem and said the cause of death was morphine toxicity.

Senior coroner Chris Wilkinson adjourned the inquest until June 13 next year.
