The family of a dancer found dead have paid tribute to the ‘kind, caring and thoughtful’ 22-year-old.
Maddie Durdant-Hollamby was found close to the body of a man at a home in Kettering, Northamptonshire, at 1pm on Friday.
Police were called after concerns were raised about her welfare and they believe she had been murdered.
Yesterday, her family said their pain was ‘indescribable’.
They said: ‘We are absolutely devastated at the loss of Maddie, our beautiful daughter, sister, granddaughter and niece.
‘Our hearts are broken and we cannot begin to imagine life without her. The shock and pain we are feeling is indescribable.
‘She was a beautiful person both inside and out, who loved nothing more than spending time with her family and friends. Maddie was a kind, caring, thoughtful young woman, who touched the lives of everyone she met.
‘A talented dancer, her creative talent continued through school and into her career in marketing. Her life has been sadly cut short just as her career was blossoming.’
