A 28-year-old woman was found dead upstairs after police forced entry into a house in Newtown, an inquest has heard.

Danniella Nicole Davies was found at her home in Vaynor on Thursday, April 18, after police received a phone call concerning her welfare at around 8.45pm.

An inquest was opened at Pontypridd Coroner's Court on Friday, May 3, which heard that police were satisfied that there were no suspicious circumstances surrounding her death.


The hearing was told that the cause of death was pending while further investigations were being carried out by the pathologist.

Assistant coroner Rachel Knight told the hearing that she was satisfied that it was necessary to open the inquest because there was a reason to suspect that Mrs Davies' death was "unnatural".

“I would like to take this opportunity to express my condolences to the friends and family of Danniella Nicole Davies at this sad time," she added before adjourning the inquest.
