Tribute to Mother and Daughter by Epsom College Headteacher’s Family

Emma Pattison had a “warm, welcoming smile and sparkling, blue eyes, full of optimism,” according to her family, and she was very close to her daughter.

The family of the late headmistress of Epsom College, Emma Pattison, described her and her daughter Lettie as “inseparable” when paying tribute to them.

Police believe they were murdered by her husband, who was also discovered dead at a residence on the grounds of the independent school on February 5.

His legal shotgun was located nearby.

Mrs. Pattison, 45, was described as “everything one could hope for in a daughter, sister, mother, wife, friend, teacher, and so much more” in a statement released by Surrey Police.
