Gran whose death sparked murder probe was found in bed with blunt force head injury

A grandmother whose death sparked a murder investigation last month died from a blunt force injury to the head, an inquest opening heard. Buddug Ann Jones of Maes Gwelfor in Rhydwyn, Anglesey was found dead at her home on April 22.

Kate Sutherland, acting senior coroner for North West Wales, heard that the 48-year-old was found lying in bed on her right hand side with a head injury on the left hand side of her head. She was pronounced dead at the scene at 11:47am.

A post mortem was conducted by Home Office pathologist Dr Brian Rodgers who gave a provisional cause of death of severe blunt force trauma to the head. The inquest, which was held at the Dafydd Orwig Chamber in Caernarfon today (May 17), was adjourned to a future date pending further investigation.

In a tribute last month, Buddug’s family said: “Buddug was the best mum, grandmother and sister anyone could ask for. She always had a smile on her face and was always caring, loving and willing to help anyone, especially her family who she cherished.

“She has been cruelly taken from us far too early and her sons, her grandchildren and brothers and sisters will all miss her every single day. We can honestly say that our lives without her will never be the same again.”

A person was arrested last month and later released on conditional police bail as inquiries continue. Detectives earlier appealed for anyone traveling by vehicle who may have dashcam footage of the north west of Anglesey between the early hours of April 22 and the early afternoon to make contact.
