Police investigating the murder of a care worker yesterday released a photograph of her car which they believe hold the key to the killing.
Mum-of-two Corby Craze, 43, was found dead after a massive fire at her home in Bodmin, Cornwall, in the early hours of Saturday.
Her blue Vauxhall Corsa Arizona was found burned out under a mile away and officers are now appealing for anyone who may have seen the driver.
A 33-year-old man has already been arrested on suspicion of murder and a 22-year-old woman and a man aged 30 arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.
Devon and Cornwall Police are now appealing for information about her car and its whereabouts in the hours before her death.
A spokesman said: ”Police are appealing for information in relation to the blue Vauxhall Corsa Arizona motor vehicle registered number M723MLJ, owned by Corby Craze.
”The vehicle had two small white flower stickers on or near the petrol cap and a novelty sticker on the rear stating ‘my motor is ‘mucking fagic’.
”In particular they are appealing for sightings of the vehicle between 2pm on Friday and 3.40am on Saturday when it was discovered alight.”
Corby, who worked in an old people’s home, was found at around 7am on Saturday after spending the previous evening socialising in town.
In a statement released yesterday her family described her as ”a very special person”.
They said: ”Corby was a very special person who had two children that she loved very much. She was proud to be their mother and she was a loving daughter and sister.
”We cannot believe that she has been taken from us and in such horrible circumstances.
”Corby was an excellent carer. She had a lovely relationship with the ladies she looked after.
”Corby enjoyed shopping and particularly like buying shoes. She loved going on holiday where it was hot.
”Corby was a good person who got on with everybody she met. She was a happy person who enjoyed going out with friends and having fun.
”We are all going to miss her very much and we are finding it hard to accept that we will not be seeing her again.”
The three suspects, all from St Austell in Cornwall, remained in custody today.
