Mother weeps for murdered Becky

The mother of murdered Becky Godden-Edwards wept as she laid flowers at the spot where her daughter was discovered.

Karen Edwards was joined by around 20 friends and family as she visited the Cotswolds beauty spot where Miss Godden-Edwards's remains were found.

They asked for privacy as they laid the flowers and a white teddy bear next to a bouquet and a wooden cross left by police last week for "An unknown lady".

Mrs Edwards wrote on a card: "When you were born and put into my arms, I cried with joy. I love you so much. But today I am crying for you, my beautiful girl.

"I loved you the day you were born and I love you even more today. I was always there for you, my baby girl, words can't be said about how I feel. Sleep tight my darling. Love Mum and Charlie."

Other cards read: "You will always be in our hearts. Never Forgotten" and "Rest in Peace".

As the family paid their respects, they stood together with their arms around one another and hugged each other.

They stayed at the field in Eastleach, Gloucestershire, for 15 minutes before driving away.

Miss Godden-Edwards's remains were discovered after taxi driver Christopher Halliwell, of Ashbury Avenue, Swindon, Wiltshire, was arrested over the murder of 22-year-old Sian O'Callaghan.

Detectives investigating the murders of Miss Godden-Edwards and Miss O'Callaghan have said they are looking at the possibility of further victims.
