Mrs. McMahon Death
Mrs. McMahon’s body was found hanging inside her home by her father, Bernard, and another man.
Her aunt and her uncle, Lorna and Stephen McMahon, attended a review hearing into her death at Bolton Coroner’s Court on Friday 4 February.
Ms McMahon told Timothy Brennand, Manchester West’s Chief Medical Examiner, that her niece had never shown signs of “self-harm or suicidal intent” and that she was not being treated by mental health services.
But he claimed that Ms. McMahon had been assaulted “on a number of occasions” and had even talked about fleeing to London for three months to get away from her situation.
Ms McMahon said she had raised “protection concerns” around her niece.
During the hearing, it was established that her allegations of abuse had been reported to the police prior to her death by friends, colleagues and family members.
Ms McMahon complained that the police had yet to interview those involved, even though “there was evidence that she was assaulted on a number of occasions”.
She said: ‘Teresa said she was going to work in London with ITV for three months to get away from this [abuse].
‘I hope the police will investigate this further. Friends, colleagues and neighbors reported that Teresa was attacked.
“Just because Teresa isn’t here today doesn’t mean she shouldn’t be investigated.”
As a result of Ms McMahon’s appeals, Granada Reports presenter Lucy Meacock, who said she was “fully aware of Teresa’s problems”, will be called as a witness in a full inquest later this year.
Brennand said: “If there is a criminal prosecution, the forensic investigation will be suspended.”
She said her jurisdiction extended only to how Ms. McMahon died, but she added: “I also have to investigate whether the death was preventable.”
