Investigating officer, Detective Sergeant Rob Bastin described the death of the war veteran Bill Davis, as "tragic" after returning unscathed from Dunkirk and serving in many other conflicts that he should die in his home, a place he should feel safe.
“How tragic, those after he fought for many years to ensure the safety of every person in this country that he died in his own home, a place where he should have been safe.
“It's difficult to find the words to describe how evil and calculated this woman has been and to this day I am not completely sure exactly what her motive was, however I feel you don’t have to look far from her addiction and desperation for money to pay for her drugs."
