A foster daughter who was horrifically abused by 'Britain's most sadistic mother' has died aged 35 – with police confirming the death is not suspicious after her body was found at a property in Cheltenham.
Victoria Spry was subjected to sickening physical and mental torture for nearly 20 years at the hands of Eunice Spry.
The Jehovah's Witness, now 76 , forced young Victoria and two other children in her care to eat their own excrement and vomit.
She would also ram sticks down the children's throats, rub their faces with sandpaper and lock them naked in rooms for weeks at a time.

Victoria and her foster siblings were attacked with hot pokers, machetes and cricket bats, and had their heads held under water.
She eventually managed to escape and raise the alarm, leading to Spry being jailed for 14 years, reduced to 12 on appeal - and released in 2014.

Despite her horrendous ordeal, Victoria later worked with social workers to help them spot the signs of abuse.
Victoria - who wrote a book about her experiences called 'Tortured' - has now passed away aged 35.
Her death is not being treated as suspicious and an inquest is expected to open later this week.
A spokesperson for Gloucestershire Police said: 'Police were called to Pennine Road in Cheltenham shortly after 11.30am on Tuesday 22 September following reports that the body of a woman had been found inside a property.
'The death is being treated as non-suspicious and the woman’s next of kin has been informed.
'A file has been passed to the coroner.'
Victoria's foster brother, Christopher, said Victoria wanted to be remembered for her mission to help children.
Paying tribute to the BBC he said: 'The work she was doing with the Gloucestershire Safeguarding Board and social services was because she wanted ours to be the last "horror case" for Gloucestershire.
'I think her legacy will be the work she was doing to help the next wave of social workers to spot cases like ours earlier on.'
Victoria, Spry's oldest victim, had sticks forced down her throat and was tied up naked and blindfolded.
She endured 17 years of torture before she escaped and went to police and Spry was brought to justice.
But in spite of her nightmare upbringing brave Victoria went on to work as a consultant with social services in Gloucestershire.
