Stephanie Payne was found unconscious in the early hours of Wednesday, October 4, 2017 in Norwich Road, Wymondham.

She was then taken to the Norwich and Norfolk University Hospital where she later died on the same day.

An inquest into her death opened on May 17, 2018, and has been adjourned ever since due to an ongoing police investigation.

At a pre-inquest review hearing on Wednesday, June 12, senior coroner for Norfolk Jacqueline Lake said the case is still not ready for inquest and adjourned the hearing for another review to take place on September 16.
