'No evidence' that woman intended to kill herself

AN open verdict has been recorded on Coningsby woman Lynda Witham who was found dead from an overdose of anti-depressant drugs

A passer-by discovered her body lying in the foetal position at a beauty spot off Dogdyke Road, Coningsby, on November 24 last year.

According to written evidence from one of her two daughters, Lindsey, Mrs Witham, had been depressed since the break-up of her marriage after 32 years.

She had become ‘obsessive’ about walking and writing, such that she kept a diary up to shortly before her death.

At a hearing in Louth, Spilsby District Coroner Stuart Fisher revealed that he had read some of the notes kept by Mrs Witham who had worked at the RAF camp.

He said there was no conclusive evidence that she had sought to take her own life.
