The family of a young woman found dead in her home at Horam have paid tribute to her.

Police were called to a flat at Manor Court, Horam High Street, on Saturday (19 May) where they found the the body of 21-year-old Bex Olive.

Officers were called to the flat in Horam just before 5pm.

Bex’s mother, Julie Baker, has released this tribute on behalf of her family:

“Rebecca Olive, or Bex as we loved to call her, was a loving individual and would do anything for anyone.

“She always cared and never forgot anyone’s birthday, always had a smile and a zest for life.

“It’s with great sadness that she’s no longer with us and as a family we are completely devastated.

“She will be sorely missed and always in our hearts.

“We ask for our privacy to be respected at this tragic time.”
