The family of an 87 year old woman who died at a care home in South Gloucestershire two weeks ago have released a statement. 33 year old Ryan Guest has been charged with her murder at the Oaktree House in Yate.
Una Dorney's family have now requested that they are left in peace in order that they can grieve privately.
“Una was a much-loved aunt, stepmother and grandmother. Her death last week has left the family shocked and saddened and we’ll miss her very much. We’re grateful for all the support and kind words we’ve received both from those who we know and those we don’t. It will take us time to absorb the devastating news and adjust to our lives without Una in them."
A 33 year old man has been remanded in custody until next month charged with the murder of an elderly woman at a care home in South Gloucestershire last week.
Ryan Guest appeared at Bristol Crown Court this morning. He will next appear at a preliminary hearing on 14th July . He is charged with the murder of 87 year old Una Dorney who's body was discovered at Oaktree House in Yate last Wednesday.
Police in South Gloucestershire have begun an investigation after an 87-year-old woman was found dead at a care home. Officers were called to Oaktree House in Yate yesterday afternoon. A 33-year-old man who is not a member of staff has been arrested on suspicion of murder.
Four Seasons, the care home provider that runs Oaktree House in Yate, where an elderly resident was found dead has issued the following statement:
This is a deeply upsetting and distressing time for the family and we will support them as much as we can. A resident was found dead in her room and in line with our normal procedures in the event of a sudden death, the home manager immediately contacted the police and relevant authorities. It would be inappropriate for us to comment further whilst the police investigation is on-going.
