Sep 7, 2022

A JustGiving page created to raise money for the son of a woman stabbed to death in Wallingford has raised more than double its goal.

Police officers were called to a flat in Blue Mountains, Wallingford, at about 2am on August 30.

A woman, since identified as mum-of-one Katie Hurmuz-Irimia, née Chalk, suffered significant injuries and died at the scene.

A post-mortem examination found the provisional cause of the 40-year-old’s death to be stab wounds to the neck and chest.

To support Mrs Hurmuz-Irimia’s son Hayden a JustGiving page has been created, with a £2,000 target.

As of publication of this story today, the JustGiving page has raised £4,195 – 209 per cent above target.

The JustGiving page – created by Mrs Hurmuz-Irimia’s uncle Colin Gilbey – reads: ““On hearing the news of Katie’s tragic passing, I’m sure many people’s first thoughts have been with her loved ones, especially her beautiful boy Hayden.

“Katie’s love and admiration for Hayden was infectious and he adored her.

“My heart is breaking for them and I’m hoping by raising money for Hayden, even a small amount, it will help Katie’s family to support him through the unimaginable hurt they are feeling.

“Nothing can take away the pain Katie’s family are feeling.

“Katie was loved by so many, the love and beautiful words and messages received for Katie and the family mean so much.”
