Inquest opened after woman found dead with gunshot wound in Heacham

An inquest has been opened into the death of woman who was found dead in Heacham earlier this week.

Pam Thomas, 59, was found at an address in Marea Meadows on Tuesday night and an ambulance was called to the property at 10.50pm, after reports that a woman had suffered cardiac arrest.

But on arrival, the crew discovered Mrs Thomas had suffered a gunshot wound and pronounced her dead.

Police also attended the scene, but a spokesman said the death was not being treated as suspicious.

The inquest into Mrs Thomas' death was opened and adjourned yesterday after a post mortem declared the cause of death was a head injury due to the discharge of a firearm.

Mrs Thomas was married to Heacham-based builder and former caravan park owner Aubrey. The couple have a son and daughter - Neil and Holly - and three grand-children.

Earlier this week, one neighbour said: 'Pam was a very popular person, she was very nice, very approachable.
