An inquest is due to open today (Tues) into the death of teenager Gaia Pope-Sutherland.

The body of the 19-year-old was found on the afternoon of November 18, 11 days after she was reported missing from her Swanage home.

The discovery followed a huge search involving hundreds of members of the local community.

At the time Dorset Police said a post-mortem examination had not identified any injuries to suggest third party involvement and Miss Pope’s death was being treated as "unexplained."

Detective Superintendent Paul Kessell, of Dorset Police’s major crime investigation team, said: "The post-mortem examination has not identified any injuries to suggest any other person was involved in her death. The cause of death is undetermined pending toxicology. 

"The coroner is involved in the oversight of these examinations but at this time this remains an investigation into an unexplained death."

Dorset coroner Rachael Griffin will open the inquest at the coroner's court at Bournemouth Town Hall.
