Died 18th April 2014

Doreen Webb (64) was stabbed to death on Good Friday 18th April 2014 at home in Durrington, Wiltshire.

Leonard Webb (68) has been charged with her murder.

Ms Webb had reportedly lived at the address for 30 years with her husband. She had 6 grandchildren and had been married for 40 years.

Webb was initially arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after Ms Webb was found seriously injured.

Police described the death as a “domestic incident”.

Webb was reported to be a retired army colonel who served in the Royal Artillery.

FOD Comment: FOD has so far been unable to discover any personal information about Doreen Webb. All media reports have focussed attention on her alleged killer and his history in the army or their life as a married couple. Some reports have even named her husband, but left her unnamed. We deplore this deeply disrespectful attitude to victims – which unfortunately is not uncommon – and would welcome respectful comments from anyone who knew and admired or loved Ms Webb.
