© PA Undated handout photo issued by Gwent Police of Cerys Marie Yemm The family of a killer found eating a woman's face have said they were "devastated" by the death "of an innocent young lady".
Relatives of Matthew Williams, who attacked 22-year-old Cerys Yemm in his hotel room, said they were in "complete shock".
In a statement they said: "Our thoughts and prayers at this time are with the victim her family and friends. Words cannot express our grief."
Williams lured Miss Yemm back to his hotel room after meeting her in a bar before attacking her and eating her face and an eye, it has emerged.
According to friends Williams told Miss Yemm, a sales assistant at Next, that he would call her a taxi home after meeting her on a night out.
But once back at the hotel where he was staying, he launched an horrific attack.
Miss Yemm was found with serious injuries by police who then tasered Williams in the hotel room. He died within minutes of being arrested.Miss Yemm was later pronounced dead.
It is understood Miss Yemm and Williams, who was released from prison within the last month, met on Wednesday night through mutual friends.
Officers have been carrying out forensic tests on a silver BMW believed to belong to Williams.
They were trying to work out whether he drove her back to the Sirhowy Arms hotel in Argoed where he was found “eating her to death”.
A friend of the pair said: “They met that night in a bar and got chatting for the first time.
“They had been drinking and he persuaded her back to the hotel and said he’d get her a taxi home.
“Once he got her back in the hotel he must have invited her up to his room and that’s where he attacked her.”
Miss Yemm's mother Paula, 49, was being comforted at her detached home in Oakdale near Blackwood, South Wales on Friday. A police family liaison officer was at her home.
As well as the murder investigation, the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) watchdog has launched its own inquiry following the man's death.
A Gwent Police spokesman said on Friday: "The murder investigation is continuing today, officers and crime scene investigators remain at the scene. To confirm, we are not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident.
"We are co-operating fully with the IPCC, which is independently investigating the death of the man. At this time our thoughts are with the families of the deceased following this extremely tragic incident.
"Our officers who attended the incident yesterday are being fully supported by our force occupational health department."
