An investigation at Blackpool Town Hall heard that Jay, from Stockport, Greater Manchester, had a “significant amount of morphine” in her system. Dr Mark Seasons, a consultant pathologist at Blackpool Victoria Hospital, who performed the autopsy five days after the body was discovered, was unable to determine the cause of death. “The body was very decomposing and it was clear that part of the body had been eaten by the animals,” he said. However, coroner’s assistant Louise Ray found and recorded that morphine toxicity was the cause of death.

Jay’s daughter Beth told the court that her mother was treating back pain from degenerative disc disease and got morphine from her late grandfather who prescribed morphine as part of end-of-life care. Recalling her last conversation with her mother, the daughter said, “We last spoke on April 8. She was not good, and it was clear since February, she was accusing me of hacking her bank account and she thought I was working with her ex. I tried to get her help by calling 111 but they They basically told me she was an adult who could only refuse to help.”

Describing her mother’s health problems, the daughter said: “She said she felt like some days she couldn’t get out of bed because of her back and it was stressful for her because she was very active and loved to walk dogs. I don’t think she would have finished on her own. She wouldn’t have left her dogs and went to the apartment after she passed away. And the dog food outside was ready for the next day.” “She was not secluded, she was very active and lots of people loved and cared for her.”

Louise Ray said,[Jay] She was experiencing severe pain in her joints. Her pain was severe and limited her ability to move, which was difficult for her because she was an active woman. Her daughter thought she started taking uramorphs from her grandfather. He had passed away before and was described as an Oramorph in end-of-life care and after her death, Sarah’s daughter found bottles of her grandfather Oramorph in her bedroom.”
