Today, the son of Rosemary Shearman described the moment he found out his mother's death, and appealed for anyone with information to come forward. Greg Shearman said:
"It was unreal, it's not the sort of thing that happens to your own family. But laying flowers at her house for myself and my sister - was just terrible.
"If anyone was in that area, and may have seen something, just contact the police. This is a nan, my mum, who's been taken away from us. And it's wrong. If you can help, ring the police."
