The family of a woman allegedly murdered by her partner, who is supposed to have put the gun on themselves, said they thought the man was a & # 39; deadbeat & # 39; was, but she thought he was the one.
Trudy Dreyer, 49, was found dead alongside Tim Ogle, 48, on a site in Doyles Creek, near the Hunter Valley, on Thursday afternoon.
Mrs. Dreyer's cousin, Dan Pollard, said the mother-of-two was a & # 39; true romantic & # 39; and had high hopes for her thriving romance, which had probably begun nine months
& # 39; We met Tim a few weeks ago, we didn't think much about him, & # 39; he said to the Saturday Telegraaf.
& # 39; We thought he was a manslaughter, we never thought he could be a murderer. & # 39;

The police found Mr. Ogle and Mrs. Dreyer with gunshot wounds and lying in puddles of blood in a home in the Hunter Valley in New South Wales north of Sydney on Thursday afternoon.
A discarded gun was found nearby.
Mrs. Dreyer's neighbor said the woman & # 39; sweet & # 39; was enthusiastic about her relationship.
& # 39; She was enthusiastic about the relationship, but the last thing I heard was that things were not going well, they were arguing a lot, & # 39; he said.
Both Mr. Ogle and Mrs. Dreyer have children under the age of 18 from previous marriages, all of whom were staying with relatives at the time.
It is understood that a travel agent first sounded the alarm after the couple did not board the plane for an expensive vacation they had booked to South America a few days ago.
The creepy scene was discovered after the police were called to a home on Doyles Creek Road in the Hunter Valley on Thursday at 4 p.m. in connection with a concern for the well-being of a couple
The house remained a crime scene on Friday, as investigators spent the day interviewing shocked family members, neighbors, and colleagues.
It is clear that the two of them worked in Mount Arthur's coal mine.
The police believe that Mr Ogle shot Mrs. Dreyer before pointing the gun at himself.
& # 39; The person who warned the police said they had not heard from the couple for a few days, & # 39; Cessnock inspector Michael Gorman told The Daily Telegraph.
& # 39; We make these kinds of phone calls quite regularly, but you don't expect to find this.
The death of a man and a woman has shaken the small rural community of Doyles Creek
Police said the couple both had children from previous relationships, who were staying with their respective parents at the time.
Neighbors in the small rural community were startled by the tragedy.
But many residents knew very little about the couple who lived at the address.
It is believed that Mr Ogle had suddenly become possessive and paranoid about his relationship with Mrs Dreyer, the publication reported.
A neighbor, who did not want to be mentioned, told Daily Mail Australia on Friday that Mrs. Dreyer was a mother of two who had lived in the area for about five years.
He said that Mr Ogle had moved about six months ago.

Another neighbor described the pair as & # 39; a little odd & # 39 ;. He said Mrs. Dreyer loved herself very much.
& # 39; I haven't heard much, but I think she's been missing for a few weeks or so. & # 39;
Hunter Valley Police will continue its investigation and a report will be prepared for the coroner.
