THIS is the face of Rosalyn Hunt, one of the two people found dead in Ipswich whose bodies sparked a double murder probe.

As a 15-year-old girl and 41-year-old man from the town continued to be questioned about the deaths by detectives early today, tributes were paid to Ms Hunt.

The mother-of-two's life ended tragically early at her flat in Victoria Street. Her world had fallen apart some years ago after she was gripped by an addiction to alcohol.

Rose Goddard, 16, added: “Rose was warm-hearted. She had a nice side to her. We put a rose outside her door to pay our respects.”

Meanwhile, the two suspects arrested on suspicion of murder were still being held at Ipswich police station today and a 12 hour extension has been granted to police to question the pair further.

The name of the other person found dead at a flat in Limerick Road, Ipswich, early yesterday morning was revealed earlier today as Des Thorpe.
