Tribute from Sybil Sibthorpe's family

Sybil Sibthorpe's body was discovered in May 2013

"Our cheerful home is now cold, soulless, empty and silent without her. No one will ever understand the pain that has been inflicted on our family when she was taken away from us in the most cruel, evil and scary way. She was a peaceful, hardworking and very talented lady who we all miss very much."
