"She was a mummy, a grandmother, sister and daughter, a clever and insightful woman murdered so brutally by a man she had invited into her home.Her murder has left a deep and dark hole in our lives. The sentence imposed in some ways reflects the gravity of this crime and gives us some consolation.Our wonderful life has been shattered and all we can now do is try not to let the incomprehensible actions of one man become our focus.Instead, we will try to rejoice in the memories we have of a truly wonderful woman, our beautiful mummy."

– Jessica Knight, Mrs Dundas's daughter

"At the time of her death, Janis was not in the best of health and was recovering from a hip operation which hindered her mobility. Janis lived in a one bedroom flat, but despite this she agreed to let Jack Huxley sleep in her living room as she wanted to help him. ... While Janis was in bed Huxley trawled the internet for porn and then brutally murdered her while she slept. Huxley then mutilated her after her death. This was a truly shocking case and Jack Huxley has shown no remorse throughout this investigation. "
