  1. Ive just come across this story so sad.

    She was a great girl with many talents.

    Not sure about her boyfriend though I was expecting some Olympic type hunk but it turned out to be one of those tattoo & pierced geezers. Theres no mention of what work he did but like most of the guys like that Ive met probably unemployed.
    But hey Tazmin saw something in him im obviously missing.
    That house was strange too from the pictures ive seen its like a big shed made of wood.
    Not the best in a fire.
    As for the fire what Ive read dosent add up.
    They say it started around 20:00hrs on a sunday night.
    At that time most people are awake eating or watching TV.
    But they didn’t get out or call 999.
    The fire was reported by a passing ambulance………strange.
    This is like another internet story I came across of Olympic athlete Lilian Board who died of cancer at just 22. There were tears in my eyes when I read about her and there are tears in my eyes now for Tazmin.

    I would like to visit the site where she died maybe lay some flowers does anyone have the correct address or postcode?
    All I can see on the web is – Bromyard Road in Cotheridge looking at the map that’s a long road. You can email me at ajaysingh6@yahoo.co.uk.

    RIP Tazmin.
