THE FAMILY of a woman found dead with gunshot wounds alongside her former police officer partner say they have been overwhelmed with messages of support.

Victoria Rose, 58, was discovered along with the body of ex Wiltshire Police inspector Bill Dowling in the porch of a house on the Moonrakers estate in Devizes on Saturday morning.

In a statement released today her family said: "Mum, Victoria or Vicky was sadly taken away from us on Saturday.

“Words cannot describe how the family are feeling with this loss, for such a caring person and for anyone that knew her or had any contact with her, would know how she was always willing to help and chat to anyone.

"We have been so overwhelmed with messages of support in such a difficult time and we know how shocked people must be in hearing this sad news and still it doesn’t seem quite real.”
