A coroner has said a grandmother whose body was found in woods in Cumbria was probably killed after being subjected to some sort of violent attack with a sexual motive.
Betty Brown's remains were discovered near Longtown in January 2011.
She disappeared in May 2010.
She was naked from the waist down.
Police have always treated the case as suspicious.
Her body was so decomposed, a pathologist was unable to find a cause of death.
Recording an open verdict, Coroner Robert Chapman said on balance, the likelihood was she was attacked and killed in the woods.
