Floral tributes continue to be left outside the home of Long Melford butcher Oliver Ruse, who died last Thursday.

Mr Ruse, 37, who ran Ruse and Sons Butcher’s, fell from the multi-storey car park on Parkway, Bury St Edmunds.

Investigations into his death led police to Park Terrace, in Little St Mary’s, Long Melford, where they found the body of his wife Deborah, 39.

Police are expected to reveal today how Mrs Ruse died following a postmortem examination.

The couple, who were living apart at the time, have four children.

  • Well said Jess this is such a sad time to locals and people just want to show the family they have the support and love, the trust fund is a lovely idea but initially people just want to pay their respects.

  • Surely people just want to show this well loved family support in the wake of a most traumatic time. To reduce that to the idea of profit and money is irrelevant.

  • It would be more "fitting" if a trust fund or something similar could be set-up for the children who are left behind. I have always wondered why floral tributes are left the only people who profit out of tragic time are the florists.
