A GRIEVING mother has paid tribute to her teenage daughter and said: “I really don't know how I'm going to live without her.”

Anne Rice, of Letheringham, near Wickham Market, was speaking in her first interview since 18-year-old Rebecca's body was found at her flat in Pettistree last month. She had been stabbed to death.

Along with some of her closest friends, Ms Rice yesterday remembered the fun-loving girl who always had time for everyone.

She said: “Rebecca was my best friend and I really don't know how I'm going to live without her. She had moved back to Suffolk to be closer to me after living away for five months in Essex.

“We were saying how easy Christmas was going to be because we've got our horses here and she was close by. She was talking about going skiing in February and said to me that I could come.

“She couldn't wait to leave Suffolk and, in the end, couldn't wait to come back. She seemed so mature. She knew what she wanted to do and she even talked about going back to school.”
