This is such a sad story. I heard about the disappearance of Natasha Coombs when I was on holiday in Cromer – it was one of the few news stories of the summer that stod out for me because we used to go through Manningtree on the train on the way to Cromer every year on our family holiday – my dad always used to joke about us looking out for “Man in tree” as we went through.
I actually cried when I watched the press conference with Natasha’s parents – being the mother of a beautiful teenage daughter I could really empathise with them – and followed the story through to the finding of Natasha’s body.
For her mother to die at the same spot is tragic. Presumably she killed herself – what mother could carry on living without their child? – but I feel so, so sorry for the father.
