Mystery surrounds the death of a teenager who left her home barefoot in the middle of winter, an inquest has heard.

Nida Naseer vanished from her parents’ house in Linton Street, Newport, South Wales, last December following a row over “cultural differences”.

The 18-year-old student’s badly decomposed body was found in wetlands three months later.

The inquest at Newport Civic Centre heard that she might have fallen from a bridge into the River Usk. However, with no confirmed sightings after she disappeared and a post-mortem examination revealing no sign of injuries, questions still surround her death.

Coroner David Bowen said: “Police investigations failed to find any evidence as to when, how or in what manner Miss Naseer’s body entered the river. How this happened is pure speculation. And this inquest is not concerned with speculation, it is concerned with the facts.

“Miss Naseer’s father described his daughter’s disappearance as a mystery. From the evidence that I have heard I am satisfied never has such a description been more appropriate.”
