Corrie McKeague went missing after a night out in Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk, in the early hours of 24 September 2016.
Although no trace of McKeague was found, Suffolk Chief Coroner Nigel Parsley said he “died in Suffolk jurisdiction in September 2016”.
Interim Superintendent of Suffolk Police Marina Ericson said Mr. McKeague believes he died after entering a Greggs dumpster that was thrown into a Biffa garbage truck.

She added that she first went to the area on the night of September 23 to meet with RAF colleagues.
“Witnesses say Corrie drank so much alcohol overnight that she got very drunk and was asked to leave the Flex nightclub,” added Ms. Ericson.
“Witnesses also described him as happy and friendly all night.”
McKeague, who was from Dunfermline, Fife, was last seen alive in CCTV footage at 3:25 a.m. when he entered a horseshoe-shaped area on Brentgovel Street.
This area is behind a Superdrug and Greggs store and contains several industrial waste bins.
Ericson said the industrial containers were collected at 4:19 the same morning.
At the time, the Greggs container weighed 116 kg, “which was about 70 kg to 80 kg more than its average weight,” he says.
Corrie’s internet-connected cell phone sent a signal from there showing the movement of the garbage truck towards the Barton Mills roundabout.
“At this point, the mobile operator has lost the signal.”
Ms. Ericson added: “Despite a police investigation and search, there has been no evidence of life since Corrie’s last sighting on Saturday, September 24, 2016 at 3:25 am.
The coroner said, “Based on the evidence I’ve heard, I’ll open an investigation into Corrie’s tragic death.”
The hearing in Ipswich opened on Friday and has been adjourned. A preliminary review hearing is scheduled for 5 February.
McKeague’s mother, Nicola Urquhart, who previously requested an investigation for her son, said she was “extremely optimistic that this will give us some answers.”
His father, Martin McKeague, added: “This will reveal the truth to the public.
“There are no secrets. We don’t find any news here.
“The facts and evidence they have given us tell us that this is exactly what happened to him.”
