Mystery over Prestwood woman's Sri Lankan car death
MYSTERY surrounds the circumstances leading to the death of a woman following a car accident while on holiday in Sri Lanka, a coroner has ruled.
Christine Cowdrey was a passenger in a taxi with her husband on November 23, 2010, when the vehicle was involved in a collision with another car.
Mrs Cowdrey, of Manor Close, Prestwood, was taken to Monaragala Hospital and immediately taken into theatre but died from her injuries later the same day.
But the inquest, held at Beaconsfield Coroner's Court on Wednesday, heard despite several attempts in the intervening years, authorities had been unable to establish any further details of the circumstances surrounding Mrs Cowdrey's death.
Recording a verdict of death by misadventure, corner Richard Hulett said: "We don't know much more about what happened in this collision, and neither will there be any criminal proceedings.
"We've no confidence or belief, even after nearly three years have passed, we'll get any information on this."
