MURDERED Halesowen grandmother Cynthia Beamond's body was hidden in the garage of her home by her killers, an inquest has revealed.

An inquest was opened and adjourned today pending further police inquiries into the death of Halesowen grandmother Cynthia Beamond whose body was discovered at her home in Juliet Close.

The 80-year-old widow's body was discovered concealed in her garage on Sunday June 29 after she had been reported missing by her family the previous Friday.

Coroner's investigation officer Anita Poole told the inquest that Mrs Beamond, a voluntary charity worker, had failed to answer phone calls from her family. Her grandson had then gone round to her home and discovered her car to be missing.

Her body was subsequently found and had sustained blunt head injuries.

Two people have since been arrested by police and remanded in custody Black Country Coroner Robin Balmain confirmed that an initial post mortum revealed a comminuted skull fracture but indicated that a second post mortum may be required.
