“We’re still coming to terms with what happened. It’s difficult to put into words how we’re feeling but nothing we say is going to bring her back.

“She grew up in Grantham and we know there are people there who will be devasted to learn that she’s no longer with us.

“We’re supporting one another as we grieve and ask for privacy at this time.”

44 year old Richard Basson of Kings Road, Long Clawson has been charged with her murder and will appear in court on Monday.
