A neighbour who knew victim 82-year-old Palmira Silva said she was "such a sweet lady" who still went to work every day in a nearby cafe.
Her husband died about five years ago. I think she came from Italy originally.
I was speaking to her yesterday. She was weeding in the front garden, she loved her gardening.
She was sitting having a rest.
I said 'You've been doing such hard work, your flowers are beautiful'. She said 'I know'.
I think maybe today she was in the back garden.
She was such a sweet lady. She was slow getting around but she still went to work. I think really after her husband died that's what kept her going.
The woman, who did not wish to be named, said she had known her since 1987, adding that she was left "devastated" by the news.
