Family pay tribute to woman found dead in Amesbury

The family of Deborah Simister, the woman found dead at her home in Amesbury, have paid tribute to her in a statement:

Debz was an extremely loving daughter, mother and grandmother who absolutely doted on her family.

She was always chatty and made lots of friends in the community.

She will be sorely missed by all her family and friends and we fervently hope justice will be served.

For Debz to have her life snatched away so young leaves a big hole in all our lives.
