Pals are now paying tribute to the mum-of-three, who is being hailed as a “true diamond” with a “heart of gold”.

John Meadows, of Verney Crescent in Allerton, today appeared at Douglas Courthouse charged with Jillian’s manslaughter.

Cops are now urging witnesses to come forward after the horror unfolded outside the Palace Hotel on Central Promenade in Douglas.

Friends of the mum have now told of their shock over her death.

One pal said: “How can this even be real? You were the most beautiful woman to walk this earth, an amazing mum to your three girls, a fabulous nan and a true diamond of a friend to me. You were there for everyone.

“I will miss my rosary beads from around the world because no matter where you went you always brought me a set home.

“This is not a goodbye because I’ll see you when I get there. May you rest in eternal peace Jill.”

Isle of Man Police are now asking anyone who saw a group of people walking with a small child on Friday night to come forward.

Detective Superintendent Stephen Maddocks yesterday said in a statement on Sunday: “I would like to thank the public for their help in relation to this matter. A number of witnesses have come forward following my appeal yesterday and I would encourage any other people who have yet come forward to do so.

“I am interested to hear from anyone who saw the man and woman in their 50s, together with another man and woman in their 20s, who had a small child with them.

“I am particularly interested to hear from anyone who saw the group as they passed the Castlemona Shops and their actions as they passed the Palace Hotel & Casino, which is where the Majestic Chinese Restaurant is located and the patrons inside the restaurant may well have witnessed an altercation between them.”

He continued: “Again, I appeal to any vehicle driver, either a member of the public or a taxi driver travelling along Central and Queens Promenade between 9pm and 10pm who may have dash cam footage to come forward.

“Specialist Police Family Liaison Officers are supporting the family at what is a very difficult and sad time.”

Members of the public with any information can call the Isle of Man’s police headquarters on 631212 or the anonymous Crimestoppers line 0800 555 111.
