A woman whose mother and sister were shot dead has spoken of her grief as detectives continue to question a dog breeder over the killings.
The man, named in reports as 82-year-old John Lowe, is suspected of shooting dead the two women and four dogs at Keepers Cottage Stud in Farnham, Surrey.
Armed police were called to the property at 10am on Sunday. T he body of one woman was found inside, while the body of the other woman was found outside near animal pens to the back of the house.
The victims were named as Christine Lee, 66, and her daughter Lucy, 40, according to The Sun.
Stacy Banner, 38, who is Lucy's sister and Mr Lowe's stepdaughter, told the newspaper: "I have lost everyone - my mum, sister and dad. Now it seems he's wiped out my entire family. This is a nightmare.
"I just can't get my head around what's happened. My family's gone and I'm absolutely devastated."
The women have not been formally identified but they were related and known to Mr Lowe. Both died from gunshot wounds, Surrey Police said, and post-mortem examinations were due to be completed last night.
No one else was at the property at the time and a long-barrelled firearm was recovered from the scene.
Three German shepherds and a labrador were also shot and were removed from the property by the RSPCA, which also rescued a number of other animals.
Mr Lowe had previously been convicted of illegal puppy farming several years ago, according to reports.
In 2004 he was the subject of an investigation by BBC's Inside Out programme, which claimed that he was breeding scores of dogs and selling puppies in poor condition.
Police also confirmed that they had had dealings with the pensioner in the past, but refused to comment on whether the gun which was found was legally owned or licensed.
Magistrates last night granted police a further 24 hours in which to question him on suspicion of murder.
Detective Chief Inspector Mark Preston said yesterday that the three people involved "are all believed to be known to each other and police are not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident".
He added: "It is extremely sad that two people have lost their lives and police family liaison officers are working to support their relatives and friends at this very difficult time.
"We are conducting a full and thorough investigation into the circumstances surrounding these two deaths, however, at this time, we believe this is an isolated incident and there is no further risk to the wider community."
The matter has been referred to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC).
