The family of murdered Brighton University student Janet Muller have paid tribute to her.
The 21-year-old, who was studying in Eastbourne, disappeared from Mill View Hospital, in Nevill Avenue, Hove, on Thursday 12 March.
Her body was found in the boot of a burning car in Rusper Road, Ifield, near Crawley, the next afternoon.
They said: “Janet was a much loved daughter and twin sister and words can’t describe how much pain we as a family are in right now.
“She was always there for us and was someone that always made us smile and laugh no matter what.
“Janet was a very inspirational, passionate and caring person. Throughout her life she always cared deeply for her friends and family.
“This tragic event has left a deep hole in the hearts of all that knew her. She will be deeply missed and always remembered for her energetic, fun, bubbly and vibrant personality.
“We are overwhelmed with the love and support that we have received from Janet’s friends worldwide. Janet would have been so happy knowing how much she was loved.
“We will never forget our beautiful girl and will work with the police to establish her last movements and why she was taken from us so cruelly. We won’t rest until we find the truth.”
Christopher Jeffrey-Shaw, 26, of Lakeside, Beckenham, London, has been charged with murdering Janet, who came from Berlin.
