Donations are already flooding in after the tragic death of a mum.

Tina Cantello, 49, was on her way to the last of three door-to-door collection jobs when she disappeared on Friday evening.

Her body was found in a house about two miles from where her family believe she was last seen and a mile from her mobile phone which was recovered from Durham Road, Laindon.

A post-mortem examination yesterday revealed she died from multiple stab wounds to the chest.

Her friend Becky Crocker has set up a fundraising page, with donations to go towards easing the financial burden on her family.

The page reads: "Tina Cantello who was only 49 years old was tragically taken from her family and friends far too soon.

"I was lucky to have had Tina as a friend for many years along with her husband and children.

"I would like to show my support and hopefully with your help also in setting up this page which will help ease a little financial pressure for the family."


The page has a target of raising £500, with more than £100 already being raised.
