Inquest into death of British woman

A coroner’s inquest in the UK into the death of British woman Patricia Jensen has been opened and adjourned pending documentation from Portuguese authorities.

According to the Bournemouth Coroners Court, Patricia Jensen, 67, died from massive chest injuries due to “blunt force trauma” following a car accident in an underground car park in Vilamoura on January 22.

A spokesman from the GNR told the Algarve Resident: “Patricia Jensen was lying on the floor of the underground car park and was run over by a car entering the structure.

“The driver of the car and Patricia Jensen’s husband were both interviewed by police regarding her death.”

Mark Humphries, the coroner’s officer for the case, told the Algarve Resident: “It could take anything up to a year for us to receive all the paperwork we need from Portuguese police to proceed with the inquest.”

At the time the Algarve Resident went to press on Wednesday, no information was available from the Portuguese authorities regarding the case.  D.S. and I.L.
