    The lady, Karen Simmonds, is my niece from my previous marriage which lasted 30 years. I saw her grow up and feel sorry that she had a tragic end. She had been troubled for many of the later years and now she rests in peace.
    I remember her well as a child, teenager and young woman, and keep thinking about her and wondering what happened last Monday 11 April 2011.
    Please keep me informed of all your enquiries.
    Thank you
