Mom of three dies after swallowing $102 worth of cocaine

The bag of cocaine was discovered in the post-mortem examination.

Irene Dignon, her mother, testified at her inquest: “There was no evidence of anything like drugs with her — she was always so anti-them.”

She added: “She was always so upbeat I wouldn’t have thought she needed them, it’s a different world.”
