The son of a PCSO thought to have been killed while taking her dog for a walk has paid tribute to his “loving mum”.

Julia James’ remains were found in Akholt Wood in Snowdown, Kent, on Tuesday, April 27, with her Jack Russell by her side.

Police officers are treating the 53-year-old’s death as a murder, but no arrests yet been made.

Ms James lived in the tiny nearby hamlet with her husband Paul, and the death has left the community reeling.

Julia's son Patrick Davis, 23, afterwards posted a heartbreaking tribute on Facebook.

It read: “Mum, I cannot believe I’m even writing this. I love you to the moon and back.

"I’m in complete shock and I still don’t even think this is real, but I just hope wherever you may be that you’re happy and comfy because that’s all you deserve.

“You were the most amazing, loving, caring, mother anyone could ever ask for and the circumstances that surround this just don’t make sense.

“I appreciate everyone’s messaging and stuff but I’ve got to ask for people to let me and my family have some space at the moment.

“Fly high mum, I love you so much.”

Julia's ex-husband Wayne Davis got in touch with his son after seeing the initial reports emerge from Snowdown.

He told The Sun: "I said I’d heard a woman has lost her life.

“Then a bit later, the phone rang and he said, 'Dad, it’s Mum’. He was crying and crying.

“He was devastated. Julia was the love of my life, but we separated, as couples sometimes do.

“She was a lovely woman. She was walking her dog a lot.

“What she did as a PCSO was not just a job – it was a way of life."

Assistant Chief Constable Tom Richards earlier said Kent Police are pursuing "a number of lines of inquiry".

He added it was "vitally important" that anyone who was in the area on Monday and Tuesday and may have seen something suspicious comes forward.
