Tragic elderly couple fell to their deaths from bedroom window, inquest hears
TRAGIC couple Glenys and Roy Smith fell to their deaths from the bedroom window of their home, a coroner has heard.
Mr and Mrs Smith, who were aged 92 and 89-years-old, were found in the garden of their home at Crag Head, Manor Road, just after 8.30am last Tuesday.
The grim discovery was made by an assistant caretaker, and it is thought the couple fell around 30 feet to their deaths.
District coroner Sheriff Payne heard that Mr and Mrs Smith, who moved from Pontypool in Wales to Bournemouth several years ago, died of multiple traumatic injuries, pending the results of a toxicology report.
The body of Mrs Smith was identified by son Michael, while Mr Smith was identified by their second son Richard on Thursday.
A note was found in their home, suggesting they fell to their deaths at 11pm on the night before their bodies were discovered.
An interim date for the full inquest has been set for February 13 next year.
