Cornwall Live. By Lee Trewhela.
The disappearance of a millionaire’s wife, who went missing while sailing from Cornwall to her home in North Devon, made international headlines in October 2012.
Now almost seven years later the inquest into the death of mother-of-four Ona ‘Mary’ Unwin will be held in Truro.
Police said six months after her disappearance she was unlikely to be alive.
Det Con Martin Hearn, from Devon and Cornwall Police, said in 2013: “With the witness accounts that we've got of Mrs Unwin's sailing abilities, we would consider that she set sail while not having enough experience and, unfortunately, an accident is the most likely cause [of her death].”
The inquest will be held on March 7 at County Hall, Truro, and conducted by coroner Stephen Covell.
