The family of a woman found dead at her Stoke-on-Trent home have paid tribute to their ‘beautiful and loving daughter’.
Officers were called to a report of the discovery of a woman’s body at an address on East Terrace in Fegg Hayes just after 12pm on 31 May.
Sadly, 35-year-old Louise Castrey was pronounced deceased at the scene.
Her death is currently being treated as unexplained and detectives are continuing to investigate the circumstances.
A post mortem has taken place and detectives are working to establish how she died.
Her family said: “Words cannot express our deepest sadness at the sudden loss of our beautiful, loving daughter Louise.
“We, as her family, would like to thank the numerous acts of kindness shown to us from family members, friends and everyone who knew Louise. It has helped us to cope with our grief at this tragic time.”
Detective Inspector Zoe Kelsall, senior investigating officer, from Staffordshire Police’s Major and Organised Crime Department, said: “This is an extremely distressing time for all of Louise’s family and friends and we’re continuing to follow up a number of lines of enquiry.
“We’re keeping an open mind around the circumstances of the death and would urge people not to speculate.
“Anyone who has any information that may be able to help us with our inquiry should message Staffordshire Police on Facebook or Twitter or call 101 quoting incident number 242 of 31 May.
