She hadn’t seen her for several days and she hadn’t answered calls from the local postman who had alerted the local mayor.
Two other British expats living nearby were told to search Tina, but upon arrival they found a 26-year-old Bulgarian Roma gypsy digging a hole in her garden, the Mail reports.
When she was asked, she said the owner asked him to take care of her three dogs.
Shortly thereafter, however, she fled to the nearby gardens and Tina’s body was found during a search of her property in Veliko Tarnovo.
It is believed that, according to police reports, she was digging her grave and using the same shovel she killed her with to dig.
Police arrested him during a door-to-door search after one of the expats provided them with a photo of him taking care of Tina.
Mayor Hristo Hristov said he contributed to the arrest along with local police chief Petar Petrov.
He told reporters: “It was clear that he was still in town.
“We put some things together and looked for ‘Grandpa Georgia’ that we thought might meet this person. Petar, the veteran inspector, quickly realized that Grandpa Georgi had guests.
“When I entered I saw him lying on the floor with Petar’s knee on his back.”
The suspect, from the nearby village of Gorna Oryahovitsai, would have been seen in the past with Tina, known as Roxanne, but had not been seen for about a year.
He was handed over to Veliko Tarnovo’s investigators and, according to local reports, admitted to the murder and said he acted out of “jealousy”.
Tina originally lived in Gloucester and moved to Bulgaria after a 17-year career at the Clifford Chance law firm, according to her LinkedIn page.
She lived alone in the village for four years and took care of the farm’s dogs and pigs.
In a recent post on LinkedIn, she Tina wrote that she “enjoys life”.
Tina’s brother Dean said he was angry that the Foreign Office was unable to contact the family due to the death of her sister.
He said: “The government hasn’t told us anything, my sister’s friends in Bulgaria have given us the message.”
A Foreign Office spokesperson said: “We are supporting the family of a British woman after her tragic death in Bulgaria and are in contact with the Bulgarian authorities.”
