I’m so grateful for people sharing posts for #justiceforjulia

A number of people have asked about holding a vigil for Mum, and whilst I am so grateful for people wanting to remember her, I am very conscious that any gathering would need to be policed (if it was even allowed), I’ve discussed this with my family and we are in agreement that we would prefer all police resources to be concentrating on the investigation as there is so much work to be done.

I’ve been thinking perhaps we could ask those who wish to remember Mum to light a candle for her and leave it on their doorstep. This would be a beautiful nod to Mum in a way that doesn’t intrude on the Police investigation.

Tomorrow marks a week since we lost Mum. At 7pm I will light a candle for her. #justiceforjulia

I've bought a pack of electric tealights so I don't have to worry about leaving them.

Just realised my OP may be a bit confusing re dates. Her daughter posted yesterday (3rd) so it is about tonight (4th).

It is a week since the discovery of her body

And it is now featuring on the main news - major investigation but no leads. And police are warning the public to be extra vigilant if going out alone

"On Monday, Kent Police advised people living near Akholt Wood, Snowdown, to tell someone where they are going if they leave their home, and to plan their route.
Ch Insp Dan Carter said people should "remain cautious, vigilant and aware of your surroundings when you are out and about".

I joined in, and also lit a candle for Sao many other women who've not had the media attention for what ever reason.
