The inquest into the death of York woman Mandy Bishop is to open and adjourn later.
She'd been missing for around a fortnight when officers found her body in the Ouse near Skeldergate Bridge last Friday.
The 34 year old, had lived on Skeldergate in York where she was the sole carer of her mum Valerie. In addition Mandy had acrophobia which had kept her virtually housebound for 13 years.
Days after she was reported missing officers also discovered traces of blood inside the family home, identified as Mandy's, and expressed fears for her safety.
Mandy's mum Valerie is said to be struggling to cope with the loss of her daughter.
