Born in Lewisham, Ms Easom – who was also known as Claudia – went missing on March 8.

Her daughter had made a heartbreaking plea for information but the body was found off Water Eaton Road, in Summertown, close to Harpes Road, where she was last seen.

When Ms Easom's inquest was opened in April Oxfordshire's coroner Darren Salter indicated she had been suffering from mental health problems.
