MUM’S ANGUISH – Monday August 5 2013

– The mother of slain Pakenham woman Kylie Blackwood has paid tribute to her daughter, who was found dead in her home four days ago.
Still reeling from shock, Mrs Blackwood’s mother, Edie Whitta, thanked the community for its support.
She also urged anyone with information about her daughter’s death to come forward and help police find the killer.
Well-wishers yesterday left floral tributes outside the Mccaffery Rise home she shared with her husband Peter, the owner of Harcourts Pakenham.
The 42-year-old was found on her lounge on Thursday afternoon by her 11-year-old twins. The couple also have a 13-year-old son.
Neighbours have told how the terrified girls ran for help, but were too late to save her.
Mrs Whitta said her family appreciated the generosity and kindness of the community as they grieved for Mrs Blackwood, who worked at a nearby clothing store.
She said she hoped someone had information that could assist detectives investigating the death.
“We do hope that they find this person,” Mrs Whitta said. “If anyone knows anything, please come forward and give that information to police.”
Mrs Whitta said her family and Peter’s relatives had rallied together as they tried to come to terms with the tragedy.
Shocked friends and neighbours have paid tribute to Mrs Blackwood, described as well-liked and respected.
