Mystery over death of Wolverhampton mother at Crete hotel

Dionne Abrahams, from Thorne Avenue, Low Hill, Wolverhampton, was enjoying a break in the country’s largest island of Crete last month.

The mother-of-one had been out socialising on the night of Saturday, July 15, and returned back to the hotel alone.

But around 2.30am the following morning she fell from a window and died on the way to the hospital due to injuries sustained to her head.

An inquest at Black Country Coroner’s Court was adjourned until November 6 while further investigations into Dionne’s death are carried out by British and Greek authorities.

Coroner Zafar Siddique said: “We need to know who was with her, who last saw her, we heard she was travelling with friends we need to know was she sharing a flat or apartment, all of this needs to be ascertained.

“I will adjourn this until November 6. Because this happened overseas it will take some time.

“I know the family are making their own inquiries as well.

“There is also a police investigation in Crete.”

“I have been contacted by a lot of people about this.”

Friends left tributes to Dionne, a former Highfields Science Specialist School student,on her Facebook page when news spread of her tragic death.

Kyra-lee Paxon said: “I can’t actually believe what I’ve just heard.

“Rest in peace beautiful.”

 Lucy Slater posted: “So shocked. Rest in peace Dionne thoughts and prayers are with your little boy and family.”

Senior Coroner’s Officer Russell Williams said: “It would appear she was on holiday with a friend.

“She went out socialising on July 15 and returned to her hotel on her own.

“She appeared to have fallen from a window in the early hours of the 16th.

“Staff at the hotel were alerted by the noise.

“Police and ambulance attended but sadly she died en-route to the hospital.
