Family Release Tribute To Murdered Woman
The family of 31-year-old Christine Peters, the woman who was found murdered at her home on Wadsworth Court, Bedford, on Friday 29 April have released the following statement:
We as a family are devastated and shocked at the sudden, tragic, unexpected loss of our baby sister, Chrissy. Words cannot express the grief that we are feeling at this sad time.
Chrissy was a beautiful person, who was not only a sister, but an amazing mother, daughter, auntie, cousin, niece and a good friend to many. Chrissy will be remembered for her big smile that would brighten anybody’s darkest day.
Chrissy lived for her children and was always thoughtful and kind to others and who would help anyone. Chrissy rarely socialised, but when she did she was the life and soul of the party. An ocean will not fill the void that our baby sister has left behind.
We as a family, are deeply touched by the overwhelming outpour of grief, love and affection that has been shown towards Chrissy, wherever we have been. It is painfully obvious to us as a family that Chrissy touched so many hearts and that Chrissy was so loved.
Chrissy is now at peace and in the arms of our dad. We would also like to thank the professionalism and support of the Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire police and everybody involved with Chrissy and her treasured children at this sad time.
We as a family, ask that our privacy is observed and respected, so that we can be left in peace to grieve the loss of our little baby sister.
29-year-old Jordan Matthew Quailey, of Wadsworth Court in Bedford, has been charged with murder.
