A wife shot dead by her estranged husband in a jealous rage recently struck up a romance with one of his closest friends, MailOnline can reveal.
Rose Jobson, 69, is believed to have blown up her husband Robert Jobson, 84, at their home of more than three decades at a shooting range in the Lincolnshire village of Thornton Curtis before turning the gun on himself.
Shocked neighbors in the quiet village say Jobson moved out of the marital home after learning his wife had found love with his friend Pete Hrynick.
Ms Jobson, a mother of two, who was 15 years her husband’s junior, and Jobson had known Mr Horinik for at least 35 years, having met him at shooting school in the 1990s. Friends say the pair have become increasingly close over the past six months and went on holiday together in Tenerife a few weeks ago.
Mrs Jobson’s body was found next to her husband in the remote grounds of White Lodge Shooting School last Friday. Police are treating it as a murder-suicide and say they are not looking for anyone else in their deaths.
Rose Jobson, 69, is believed to have set off the blast before her husband Robert Jobson, 84, turned the gun on himself.
Shocked neighbors in the quiet village say Jobson moved out of the marital home after learning his wife had fallen in love with his friend, Pete Hrynick (pictured).
The couple was popular in the community and known to all.
Jobson had been living separately from his wife in the village near East Halton, Lincolnshire, since the start of the summer and told a friend he felt ‘stabbed in the back’ by Mr Horinic, 69, when he found out about the affair. .
The friend, who did not want to be named, told MailOnline: ‘I think Robert feels betrayed that Pete has started seeing Rose because they have been friends for a long time. They were really close.
‘Robert actually taught Pete to shoot and when Robert got sick a few years ago, Pete was one of the people who rallied around and helped him.
‘Pete and Rose knew each other from the shooting range. They have known each other for years. Pitt was accompanied by his then wife.
‘When Rose and Robert’s marriage breaks up, she and Pete become close. They went on holiday together in Tenerife a few weeks ago.
‘Rose told people she was going with some of her friends but when she came back she confided in someone we know she actually went with Pete and they were now an item.
‘It was the first day, they hadn’t been together very long and I’m not sure how formal it was, but Robert was very jealous and took it very badly.
‘She told me “Pete stabbed me in the back”.

‘Marriages break up and people move on. Pete and Rose seemed happy together. There is no excuse for what Robert did.’
Mr Hrynyk, a former power station manager who has been married three times, declined to comment when contacted by MailOnline at his home in Grimsby.
Police and paramedics were called to White Lodge – a former farmhouse eight miles from the Humber Bridge – at 3.40pm last Friday after ‘reports of concern for safety’.
Neighbors are understood to have raised the alarm but when officers arrived Mr and Mrs Jobson were already dead.
Their isolated property – surrounded by fields and which now has a gate – stands empty. A solitary flower tribute left on a bench reads simply: ‘Rose for a beautiful rose. rest in peace my friend x’
The case has been referred to the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) as investigations continue into how Jobson was able to obtain the shotgun.
According to locals, all his firearms were confiscated after he was banned from his matrimonial home for ‘threatening behaviour’ towards his estranged wife.
One woman said: ‘It was no secret that the couple had split and Rose had a new partner.
‘They temporarily closed the shooting school and Robert went to stay with a friend while Rose stayed at home.
‘We heard that the police banned him from their house and took away all his shotguns from him because of his threatening behavior towards her in the past.
‘How he got access to the firearm, we don’t know, because he was on the police radar.’
A source at Humberside Police confirmed that Jobson killed his wife before killing himself.
The cause of death for both is yet to be officially released but is understood to be gunshot.
A source with knowledge of the case said: ‘Mr Jobson had a history of domestic abuse and was known to the police. They already had contact with the family. He was not a particularly good man.’
Apart from shooting, Ms Jobson’s other passion in life was dancing.
She was a regular at this! Hesley Dance Jive Club in the East Riding, where she was famous for wearing colorful clothes.
Susan Saul, who runs the club, said: ‘Rose was a member of our dance team for many years and was well liked by all who knew her.
‘She always wore her special outfits and accessories beautifully.
‘Always had a smile and loved her dancing. She was a big part of our dance family and will leave a big hole in our hearts.’
Mrs Jobson and her husband bought White Lodge in 1991 and decided to turn it into a shooting school, offering stag and hen parties, birthday parties and corporate entertainment as well as one-to-one coaching.
Facilities include a selection of strategically placed shooting areas on woodlands and lakes, a secret shooting area for wet and windy days and a lakeside lodge with seating for up to 30 people.
The school, which closed suddenly six weeks ago, has not reopened.
A June 3 post on the White Lodge Shooting School website said: ‘Unfortunately due to personal injuries the shooting school will be temporarily closed. Sorry for any inconvenience.’
