A man has been found dead after shooting his partner twice in the head while she was out with her one-month-old grandson in a pram.Well, fancy that!
The man is believed to have had a history of violence…
It was claimed by residents that the man had been given a suspended jail sentence in January 2009 after he admitted putting another former partner "in fear of violence," and had been having an "on-off" relationship with Puttock.What on earth possesses a woman to flick the ‘on’ switch on a relationship with a man like this?
Police said they were still investigating the two incidents and how Osler came into possession of a gun.A mystery, isn’t it? Clearly, the anti-gun laws didn’t work, did they?
Still, they ruined competitive sport for a bunch of perfectly harmless individuals, so there’s that…
One resident said: "Ossie was unpredictable man. The police know about him, the courts know about him. He was at Norwich crown court last year and got a suspended sentence."Well, he didn’t bother getting one, did he? Why would he, when he was a habitual criminal? Laws are for the law abiding, after all…
Another said: "He could never, ever have had a licence for a gun."
The ‘Mail’ has more on the strangely tangled love-life of these two:
Neighbours said Osler may have snapped after Mrs Puttock left their home in Feltwell, near Brandon in Norfolk, to rejoin her husband, David, 48.And we all know what that means, don’t we?
Plasterer Danny Wright, 39, said: 'Rachel moved in with Ozzy but then moved back with David. Ozzy told me a fortnight ago they were back together. He was a bit p****d off.'
Another neighbour said: 'Rachel and Ozzy had a pretty volatile relationship. He told me Rachel and David had got back together.So, the warning signs were all there.
'He was going on about it as if he was OK but he seemed pretty messed up about it.'
But how did these two get together in the first place?
Osler, an unemployed lorry driver who had three grown-up children by his former wife, Paula, had been a friend of father-of-three Mr Puttock and was invited to stay in his home last summer.Ah. Nevermind.
But he then began an affair with Mrs Puttock, a brunette who has two daughters from a previous relationship.
